Dear Metallica: Get Better!

Supposedly, Dave Grohl (of Nirvana/Foo Fighters/Probot fame) wrote Metallica an open letter. Here's what it said:


Hey, it's Dave! Remember me? Yeah, I'm the guy that's been listening to your band faithfully since 1983. I bought your first album 'Kill 'Em All' from a mailorder catalogue called Under The Rainbow, I think. Actually I can't remember. It was 1983 for Christsakes! But that album changed my life and I've been listening to your albums ever since (even 'St Anger'!).

I can't wait to hear the new shit, and no matter what you guys do I'll always be first one at the shop waiting to hear it. I'm sure you'll come out and blow everybody's fuckin' minds, because you're fuckin' METALLICA!

Good luck. And don't release it until it's kick-ass.

Yours, Dave Grohl.

P.S. Are you finished recording the drums yet?"

"Blackened" randomly played on my iPod the other day. Couldn't agree with Grohl more (well, except for that listening to "St. Anger" part - that album is turgid).
