    Episode 24 - Bob Rock w/ Special Guest Paul Moak

    We've got our very first guest! This week, Paul Moak (Producer/Musician) joins us to discuss Bob Rock. Was Bob the best thing for Metallica? Did Bob help ruin Metallica? We're a fan of (almost) all the Bob Rock era records. If it weren't for Bob, we wouldn't have the near perfect solo on The Unforgiven, as well as other Metallica songs that are now classics. Thanks to Paul for giving us his insight on what it's like to be a producer and for sharing his love of Metallica with us.

    Episode 22 - A Year And A Half In The Life Of Metallica (Pt. 2)

    Here we go with Part 2! The glitz, the glamour and the hammered (Looking at you, Slash). A Year & A Half Pt. 2 is the touring cycle of the black album. We get to see the good, the bad and the downright ridiculous. Lars hanging with the creepy jail chick, underwear on coat hangers, "fucking sandwiches," a ton of great live performances and much much more.

    Episode 21 - A Year And A Half In The Life Of Metallica (Pt. 1)

    This is Metallica's first time at having cameras surrounding them almost full time. Sure, we had 'Cliff Em All' to watch, but this is showing us what happens behind closed doors. Of course, behind those closed doors is what would become their biggest record to date, The Black Album. In this episode we run through the documentary and give our thoughts on things like their departure from the old sound, the addition of Jason's bass, Hetfield's progression as a songwriter, Lars' thunderous drum tracks, Kirk getting his ass kicked on The Unforgiven and of course...Bob Rock's button up shirts and turtle necks.
