METALLICA - Stockholm, Sweden 2007

So as I was saying yesterday, about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? I've said before but it clearly bears repeating:

When as many rap/disco acts as hard rock/heavy metal acts are inducted into the, ahem, ROCK AND ROLL Hall of Fame, credibility issues do arise. Rap and disco are, by their very nature, NOT rock and roll. Hard rock and heavy metal, however, not only ARE rock and roll -- they are rock and roll times ten, times a hundred, times a thousand. Rock and roll as action movie.

So, which belongs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame more? That's all I'm asking here. That's it, and that's all.

I think I promised more of the recently nominated and hopefully soonly inducted Metallica. If not, here's some anyway. Epic, sick, monster-ass show with Jaymz in great growl, perfect sound (and I mean 1000% perfect, @ 320 bitrate no less), and a great setlist heavy on the Ride, Master and Justice.

This one's special too because it includes the rarely performed "No Leaf Clover", IMHO the most underrated ballad by a band that has written a couple of damn heavy ones ("The Unforgiven", "Nothing Else Matters").

I just found your blog. You have some great recordings of bands that I like,from Metallica to Pink Floyd, unfortunately some of the links , especially Metallica, like this 2007 Sweden sdb, are dead.
Would you please be so kind and repost them?
