They’ve got the hair. They can rock tight pants. And lord knows, they’ve got the balls to think they can do justice to the songs of the legends. Yep, they’re all-female tribute bands, and they are kicking ass across the globe. These six bands are made up of seasoned musicians who are not only serious about laying down an authentic performance of classic rock and metal, but they also bring their own artistry to the table.
The collaborative album from Metallica and Lou Reed is set for release on November 1, with a single, "The View," already available on iTunes. Now, you can head over to the group's store to check out all all of the special packages of the album available.
Not long after finishing up the historic Big Four show at Yankee Stadium, Metallica jetted down to Brazil for this year's Rock In Rio festival. The band has now posted some official footage from this past weekend's concert, including tuning room footage and live performance of Master of Puppets instrumental "Orion."
Today marks the 25th anniversary of the death of one of the true legends of metal, late Metallica bassist Cliff Burton. Cliff's time with the band would last but three album, but he left an indelible mark on the music world, playing on landmark albums like Kill 'Em All, Ride the Lightning and, perhaps his masterpiece, Master of Puppets.
