This is today’s funny little news bit: Dave Grohl, frontman for Foo Fighters, drummer from Nirvana and helmer of metal side project Probot, has issued an open letter to Metallica regarding the new album:
“Hey, it’s Dave! Remember me? Yeah, I’m the guy that’s been listening to your band faithfully since 1983. I bought your first album ‘Kill ‘Em All’ from a mailorder catalogue called Under The Rainbow, I think. Actually I can’t remember. It was 1983 for Christsakes! But that album changed my life and I’ve been listening to your albums ever since (even ‘St Anger’!).
“I can’t wait to hear the new shit, and no matter what you guys do I’ll always be first one at the shop waiting to hear it. I’m sure you’ll come out and blow everybody’s fuckin’ minds, because you’re fuckin’ METALLICA!
“Good luck. And don’t release it until it’s kick-ass.
“Yours, Dave Grohl.
“P.S. Are you finished recording the drums yet?”
This letter pretty much sums up my feelings, too (sans the St. Anger statement; I tried listening to that album again last week and it still doesn’t do it for me.). Bring it on, Metallica!!!
