For our lucky winners of The Summer of Everything That Rocks trip to see Metallica last week in Pasadena, they were treated to a special tribute during the show. The band launched into Van Halen’s 1987 classic “Runnin With The Devil” complete with James Hetfield’s best attempt at imitating David Lee Roth’s iconic scream. Hetfield apologized for putting fans through that, but admitted that it was fun!
KISS fans who were anxiously holding their breath in hopes of a reunion with guitarist Ace Frehley can go ahead and exhale. In a recent interview Paul Stanley basically shut down the chatter stating that they are happy with where they are now as a band with guitarist Tommy Thayer and re-establishing a friendship with his former guitarist is not a signal for things to come.
Due out this Friday, Def Leppard are set to release their 30th anniversary edition of “Hysteria.” Along with the special version of their landmark album, the band has also done a mini documentary and part 2 is currently streaming. The second part allows the band to discuss working with producer Mutt Lange and why it took 3 years to complete.
