Dave Grohl to Metallica

Blabbermouth published Dave Grohl's letter to Metallica, an open statement of credit for their forthcoming album from a longstanding fan. Nice, Metallica still benefits of massive credit from their old fans, whatever the quality of their releases. Perverse as it may sound, we all hope Metallica will once be able equal their performance from the beginning 80's and therefore are ready to listen at least once to whatever (garbage) comes out of their instruments. But I do not think that in the current formation Metallica would ever be able to do better than The Black Album (1991) - not to mention Master of Puppets or Ride the Lightning because then I really get depressed - and this is because it's been more than 20 years that they no longer have bass player Cliff Burton on their squad. Sad but True.

PS : If you're and old Metallica fan you might want to check out Testament's latest release, The Formation of Damnation, also available in free streaming on their MySpace page.
