I must say, this is pretty awesome. Former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has just released an "open letter" to the metal men of Metallica in regards to their upcoming untitled LP. Instead of trying to explain the awesomeness of this letter I’ll just let you take a gander for yourself…
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?
I have wanted to express your same feelings since The Black Album first came out. Enter Sandman almost ruined my life. It was like Darth Vader taking his mask off at the end of Return of the Jedi - the baddest dude on the planet was really a sellout punk bitch underneath it all. I can't tell you what this letter has meant to me.
Yours, Dustin L. Sussman (Spike's Music Channel Producer).
