Coming Up This Week…

Metallica

This week it’s the turn of Metallica and their 1991 self-titled album also known as the ‘Black ALbum’. It was a controversial release at the time as it split it’s hard-core fan-base due to it’s commercial direction, but in the same time earned the band world-wide fame and a host of new listeners. The first and best metal-hard rock crossover album? We’ll see!

This Sunday at midnight only on Phantom 105.2!

  1. Suitably lunatic photo.

  2. There a very few which are not!

    I’m currently reading Slash’s autobiography at the moment and recently read Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis……it was a whole different world back then. Nothing that Pete Doherty or Amy Winehouse could do would come any way close to them!

  3. Good point. I read Scar Tissue a while back….I can’t help thinking -even though it was tough- those guys had a lot more FUN than people like Doherty and Winehouse do today.

  4. I think it’s a sign of the times where everything a celeb does is in such public domain. With YouTube, blogs and sites such as TMZ every mundane detail gets posted.

    We are so conditioned to seeing Nicole Kidman doing her weekly shopping, Jordan breaking the heel of her shoe on her way out of a nightclub and the latest reality ‘star’ picking their nose on their way to the bank that when we see Amy Winehouse smoking crack or Doherty with blood seeping from his latest track marks that it shocks us so much!

    Back in the days of Guns N Roses and Metallica we all knew what was going on but we never actually saw it. It was just crazy rock stars doing what they do. It did sound fun!
