    Yeah, they finally debuted Spit Out the Bone live:



    Hetfield should do the whole verses IMO, though.

    Played again in Glasgow tonight, so hopefully it stays in it's place for Monday night in Birmingham!

    Yeah, that was really well done. Rob even surprised me on the backing vocals! Nice work. Not quite Jason, but nice work.

    Lars hops off at the end like, "FUCK YEAH WE PLAYED IT WITHOUT MESSING UP!"

    The song is a monster, top ten worthy without a shodow of doubt.

    I am pleasantly surprised - that was a far stronger performance than I ever thought they could pull off. The verses were a bit weird but I think it would've killed Hetfield's voice for the bridge. Loving his beer gut, by the way.

    James Hetfield of Alcholica, at 54 years old, has earned that minuscule beer gut!

  12. They were really good in Birmingham.

    James has been sober for over 10 years.

    The beer gut is a funny thing since he only developed it well after he quit alcohol. I suppose being in your 50s tends to do that. That said, he was really slim in 2011 and 2012, and pretty slim even in 2013, so it's probably just a diet thing.

    Spit is pretty good, although Kirk keeps fucking up the solo, as per usual. Lars also simplified the song down to the most bare he can, but that's normal so oh well. They've actually been playing it in the encore for the current leg, which means seven (!) new songs in the set each night. Combine that with rotating one of the new song slots and also rotating a few other tunes and I'll admit it: I'm impressed. This is what you get when you don't script and rehearse every single detail in your show.

    Travis The Dragon The dreamers may die, but the dreams live on.

    For those of you who have never heard a harp with distortion, now's your chance. It sounds pretty cool.

    LOL nice. I wonder if my username was on there...

    It wasn't

    He’s expressed regret over it a few times over the years.

    It has increased my respect of Lars honestly. It takes a lot to admit your mistakes, especially at that level of infamy.

    One of them was one of my best friends, who had bought all the band's albums up to that point. He didn't buy anything from the band after that.

    I had bought two Metallica records pre-Napster and zero afterwards. I used Napster to get b-sides, bootlegs, live versions I didn't knew existed.
