Information
I have been a fan of Metallica for about 15 years (yes I was about 10), ever since a school friend of mine introduced me to his brothers copy of the Puppetz album (follow that?!). The same friend and his brother took me to my first ‘tallica gig when I was 14 at Milton Keynes Bowl in 1993. I can say that with all honesty I wasn’t totally hooked until the second time I saw them at Donington in 1995. Since that day I have been obsessed with everything ‘tallica orientated.

 

Favorite Metallica songs

A few that stick out immediately are (in no particular order): Fade to Black, Dyers Eve, Hit the Lights, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Master of Puppets, My World, The Struggle Within, Leper Messiah

 

Favorite Metallica live show/shows
Donington ’95, Ministry of Sound ’97, Leeds ’03 (see below)

Metallica Experience
I will keep this short as you can read the full review in the Metallica World Tour section. Up until last year the closest to the band I had got was at the Ministry of Sound gig in 1997 where I got to the front and got handed (chucked) a pick by James. This was my proudest and most fond memory of being at a ‘tallica gig until one day last July I checked my email, disposed of all the usual crap and found an email from the Metclub. When I read the subject my mouth full open and I sat there staring at the screen for fuck knows how long “Meet And Greet Winner for Aug 22 Leeds, U…”! I was going to meet my heroes…FUCK!! The day eventually came and as I said read about it in the tour section!!
