The week of September 6, 2023 on The Metallica Report…
Kirk “The Ripper” Hammett discusses his solos on 72 Seasons and the M72 World Tour, specifically his approach to the song “Shadows Follow.” He also geeks out while recounting hanging out with Pete Townshend, the legendary guitarist of The Who, at the Hollywood Bowl and the Peter Green tribute show at the London Palladium.
Band chef Simon Mitchell checks in from Dallas with the low-down on the Metalli-menu and how he preps fresh, healthy meals to help keep the guys in top-performing shape out on the road. And Renée brings a sweet little update from night one in Phoenix and how the hunger-fighting, guitar-shaped Enlightened ice cream bars were received.
And ICYMI, we tie up loose ends and put any worries to rest about Storm, the four-legged-media-sensation who ventured from her house to SoFi Stadium to join the crowd for night one in LA. We’re happy to report that she’s back home safely and no worse for the wear, aside from maybe a little bit of “wag-lash.”
Finally, we’re wishing James a speedy recovery from COVID-19, which caused the postponement of Phoenix’s night two appearance, which has been rescheduled for this Saturday, September 9.
