A Heavy Metal Happy Birthday James Hetfield of Metallica…
Vocalist/guitarist James Hetfield is the undisputed riff-lord of modern hard rock and heavy metal. Born on August 3, 1963 in Downey, California, Hetfield is also recognized as the king of downpicking and revered as one of the most charismatic front men in music, with a unique style and the ability to roar the likes of “Battery,” sing hits like “Nothing Else Matters,” and connect effortlessly with audiences via his personal, heartfelt, and humorous stage-banter.
Born in Los Angeles during 1981, but bred and nurtured in California’s Bay Area, Metallica (James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo) rewrote the heavy metal and hard rock playbooks, in the process becoming a worldwide musical phenomenon. With millions of album sales and streams in addition to thousands of sold-out venues around the globe, Metallica’s music has spanned the cult-classic prototype thrash of their 1983 debut album, Kill ‘Em All, to their wildly accessible hard rock classic, 1991’s The Black Album. Now approaching 40 years as a band, the guys continue to be one of the top touring acts in the world, with over two million fans attending the 150+ shows on their recent WorldWired tour.

Thought we would share the package design artwork that was approved by Pantera managemnt last week. Note the snap shots on the back from the Pantera Home Video 2. If you a Pantera from fan “the day,” you know these videos by heart. But in case you came to the party late and have not seen them, these were home videos taken by the band, a bunch by Dimebag Darrell, he was VLOGGING before there was such a thing. The snap shots show the band buiding the huge MF Leaf stage props and some of the live shots from the show here they brought this on stage…so cool and goofy fun.

Nice to see a metal band moving through this really f#cked up time without missing stride. The new video boats great production value, with cool live shots of the band and storytelling. Conjured feelings of what felt like long ago when seeing new music in the video format was how it was done…””music” TV actually ran music videos.

Jim Morrison’s Mystical Command – Rock Iconz® Limited Edition Statue
The Doors’ arrival on the rock scene in 1967 marked not only the start of a string of hit singles and albums that would become stone classics, but also of something much bigger – a new and deeper relationship between creators and audience. Refusing to be mere entertainers, the Los Angeles quartet relentlessly challenged, confronted and inspired their fans, leaping headfirst into the heart of darkness while other bands warbled about peace and love. Though they’ve had scores of imitators, there’s never been another band quite like them. And 50 years after their debut album, The Doors’ music and legacy are more influential than ever before.
Morrison’s mystical command of the frontman role may be the iconic heart of The Doors, but the group’s extraordinary power would hardly have been possible without the virtuosic keyboard tapestries of Ray Manzarek, the gritty, expressive fretwork of guitarist Robby Krieger and the supple, dynamically rich grooves of drummer John Densmore. From baroque art-rock to jazz-infused pop to gutbucket blues, the band’s instrumental triad could navigate any musical territory with aplomb – and all three contributed mightily as songwriters.
