We're used to seeing Metallica rock out live, so it was quite a sight to check out frontman James Hetfield not only without the thunderous backing of his band, but also unplugging for an acoustic benefit. Hetfield was part of an all-star lineup for the 'Acoustic-4-A-Cure benefit at San Francisco's Fillmore Thursday night (May 15), where he performed a four-song set and returned for the finale.
Last night (May 12), the 10th Annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert was held at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. Black Sabbath legend Ozzy Osbourne and Village Studios owner / CEO Jeff Greenberg were the night's honorees, but Metallica were also an important part of the show, performing a four-song set of classic covers.
We've got a big update on Metallica's next album. In a new interview, guitarist Kirk Hammett shared that this September, the thrash legends will "buckle down" and begin cranking out a brand new record.
Metallica have played nearly everywhere in the world. Last year they played on all seven continents, including Antarctica. But one place they haven't played is the legendary Glastonbury Festival in England. That will change next month.
Metallica have covered their fair share of songs over the years, but guitarist Kirk Hammett is taking on a track that most fans would never expect. The rocker is set to cover 'Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two)' for a new compilation.
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich as a pitchman? It's true. While Ulrich and Metallica have been very careful with what they put their stamp on over the years, the drummer has signed on to promote a pair of Danish beers.
He was born in Denmark and grew up with a tennis background, but Metallica's Lars Ulrich made a baseball reference when talking about the progress of a new studio album. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Ulrich says, "Right now, we're in the fourth inning."
