Metallica have now taken their “World Wired Tour” over to Europe, but Monday’s show in the Netherlands if probably one that singer/guitarist James Hetfield would prefer to forget. As the band were performing “Now That We’re Dead” Hetfield took a nasty fall, face first onto the stage, but like the true professional he is, after a few seconds and with aid of crew, he was back on his feet playing.
The album that spawned the Queen mega-hits “We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions” is about to turn 40. Queen’s “News Of The World” was released in October of 1977 and will keep a special anniversary treatment, but the part of this release that has fans most excited is the release of the “Raw Sessions” CD.
Sadly, we lost another legendary musician over the weekend. Steely Dan guitarist and co-founder, Walter Becker, passed at the age of 67. His band mate and partner, Donald Fagen wrote a tribute to his friend and promised to keep the music alive for as long as he can.
