When Jason Newsted left the ranks of Metallica, they set out to find a new bassist for the second time in their career. A recent interview revealed that Ramones bassist C.J. Ramone was their first choice.
We may have spent the last quarter century without the greatest metal bassist that ever lived, but that doesn't mean we've forgotten him. Join us as we take a look back at deceased Metallica bassist Cliff Burton shredding like no one before and no one since.
Metallica and Lou Reed. Everybody has been wondering how these two vastly different worlds would sound once they collide. Well, Lou Reed sounds like Lou Reed and Metallica sounds like Metallica. Hear a 30-second preview of the oil meets water collaboration here.
Megadeth mastermind Dave Mustaine was once the lead guitarist for a little band called Metallica. When he was replaced by Kirk Hammett in 1983, it started a long standing rivalry that has finally come to an end.
Once again the sexy Meytal Cohen makes an appearance here on Banana's website. This time she tackles Metallica's 'Sad But True.' If you're not familiar with Meytal, we have featured her a few times -- check out her top five drum covers or when she covered Tool's 'Lateralus.' She sure can destroy her drum kit. Watch after the jump.
Sometimes, two things that nothing in common come together perfectly. Really short chicks always seem to date tall dudes, people dip their fries in their Frosty at Wendy's, and Metallica and Stevie Wonder sound awesome together.
As we approach the November 1st release date of the upcoming Lou Reed/Metallica collaborative effort 'Lulu', more and more details have begun to surface. Loutallica just put smiles on the faces of those looking to illegally download the record -- by revealing the names of all ten tracks.
Metallica and Lou Reed have finally spilled the beans (well, some beans) on their new collaboration project, revealing via Twitter that the 10 song album the quintet recorded together will be called 'Lulu' and that it will be available this fall.
By now you must have heard about the 10 song project that is forthcoming from the unlikely pairing of Metallica and classic rocker Lou Reed. While there is very little info on when the project will surface, the fact that they have just launched a website for the project gives us hope we will see it in 2011.
