METALLIBASH 2002 REPORT
On July 13th, in San Francisco's magnificent Great American Music Hall, the second annual Metallibash, all organized and presented by the fans, rip-roared through a very cool, very relaxed and very very fun evening of Metallimemories, moments and the occasional flash of (good natured) Metallimadness. Approximately 350 people came from all over the globe to celebrate their respect and appreciation for the guys, in the process further renewing mutual respect for each other as hard core fans.
Amidst the swag, raffle prizes, tapes and cocktails, there was time (about two hours of it!) for audience members to ask invited guests from the Metallica Fan Club staff including Toby Stapleton, Merchandise Manager and Steffan Chirazi, "So What!" (the official fan club mag) Editor, as well as Lonn Friend, Editor of former mighty metal mag "Rip Magazine" a slew of questions about various Metallimatters.
OrionTurk (Official Metclub Chapter of Turkey) member Nadir Cinar was in Metallibash 2002. He sent me a short review of that night:
"It was great! But unfortunately Kirk, Lars and Jaymz weren't at the party. Creeping Death (Metallica Tribute Band) made a great show." The setlist is:
Harvester of Sorrow
Sad But True
For Whom The Bell Tolls
The Four Horsemen
Seek & Destroy
Master of Puppets
Ride The Lightning
Am I Evil?
"The party's finished at 1:30 am. Lars visited the hotel that everyone staying at 4:00 am. That was a nice surprise for the fans. Lars said they were in studio till 3:00 am that night. Also Lars said they are planning to finish the next album on next spring."
