I’ve seen Metallica SEVEN times. That includes the Guns N Roses/Faith No More/Skid Row super tour and Big 4. I even had tickets for the Vancouver show (which ended up with the biggest riot GNR created after St Louis)

Perhaps, but they are mine. Maybe the kids will see them when I’m gone. 8>)

But will Lars start crying about profits lost due to the sellers not paying royalties?

I work at a old tech company (still very, very successful) and the attire is “casual”.

On every campus, every day.

When I see these kids with a Rolling Stones Steel Wheels Tour, or Metallica Kill ‘em All T shirt I usually assume they got it from their dad.

Now I know they bought it on ebay LOL

“I’ve got Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, et al.................”

Three of the Original Big Six.

Cream, Beatles and Rolling Stones being the other 3.

The 6 bands that redefined modern music. Oddly, all British bands.

No I don't think so. They are savvy enough to know that they are worth something. 8>)

They have some of the newer groups themselves.

Don’t get me wrong. I’ve been listening to Metallica since 1986.
Saw them live in 1994 in Otay Mesa near San Diego.

Then........they released Load.

I got used to it lol. Load and Re-Load are OK. It’s not like you’re listening to Madonna or Lady Gaga where you take a cold shower afterwards.
