Metallica to play at the Bradley Center

Staying power. That's what Metallica has. Respect. That's what you get when you tell a Metal-Head that you like Metallica. They are a cornerstone band that continues to impress the fans. On January 12th, the stallwarts come to the Bradley Center in Milwaukee. This show is in the round. I wonder if the stage will slowly spin counter-clockwise throughout the night.

My buddy had a Ride The Lightning key chain. He blasted Master Of Puppets on his car stereo as we cruised the north woods of Wisconsin.

I can't say that I love the later works, but that does not diminish the quality music that the band put out in the early years. They didn't switch to disco. They didn't write music for a Broadway play. They stayed in the genre that made them famous.

As for line-up changes, yes a few came and went, but the band didn't lose it all with the transitions.

Another friend suggested that I rent the movie Some Kind Of Monster. I received the disk via NetFlix, only to find that I rented the "bonus" disk. Argh! I sent it back, and I'm ready to view the real DVD this week. It will get me fired up to buy the Bradley Center tickets for when they come to Milwaukee in January.
