The folks over at Metallica TV (the band's YouTube page) just posted an official video recap of their 2013 Golden Gods experience. The fifth Annual Golden Gods Awards, which featured Metallica as the headliners, took place May 2 in Los Angeles.
Metallica have posted another official video that recaps one of their overseas shows from this past spring. Check out the official video from the band's April 24 show in Cape Town, South Africa, below. The clip features performances of "Leper Messiah" and "Motorbreath."
A few years ago, the editors of Guitar World magazine compiled what we feel is the ultimate guide to the 100 Greatest Guitar Solos of All Time. The list, which has been quoted by countless artists, websites and publications around the world, starts with Richie Sambora's work on Bon Jovi's “Wanted Dead or Alive” (Number 100) and builds to a truly epic finish with Jimmy Page's solo on "Stairway to Heaven" (Number 1).
There are tribute bands that perform as a full-time profession and convert it into a profitable business, even as their goal remains to pay homage to the original bands. Then there are bands that do the same thing but keep in local and underground. Southern California’s premiere Metallica tribute band, Damage Inc., falls into the latter category.
