Enter Sloth-Man!

It’s almost too easy to do, but I’m gonna diss Metallica anyway.

I’m riding the train to work and I see in an alternative weekly calendar that it costs between $64.25 and $164.25 for TICKETS to see Metallica and the Rolling Stones perform in concert. These are apparently Metallica’s only live shows in 2005.


First they file a lawsuit against Napster for ‘encouraging piracy’ of music. Then they film a movie about their annoying neuroses and insecurities and make a huge chunk of change in the process.

Now Metallica is raking in cash from exorbitant ticket prices for people to see them perform with the Rolling Stones. Who cares?

What happened to that young, tough, zit-faced band you see on the back cover of the “Kill ‘Em All” album? Forget ‘Enter Sandman.’ It’s the era of ‘Enter Sloth-Man.’

Good point. I saw the Rolling $tones in San Francisco Sunday night. Big bucks, but still fun!
