==== TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT PT 2 ==================================
First. Thanks for all the e-mails about this subject. If you do not know
what I am talking about, check out my site http://www.encycmet.com. I
received way too many mails to answer, but I have read them all. As I
said in the last mail, I signed the agreement the lawyers sent me. Many
of you have e-mailed me and asked me why. Well, I had my reasons. First,
I can not afford to pay for expensive lawyers myself if needed, so...
Second, I also signed the agreement for what it didn't mention. It said
nothing about the lyrics, nor the tablatures which are copyrighted, so
these sections of the site will continue as always. Also, I was lucky
they contacted me. Several other sites have been shut down because the
lawyers contacted the hosting company. I didn't want this to happen to
me. If you want to discuss this, please use the message forum at
http://www.encycmet.com. I will monitor it.
==== METALLICA PHOTO PAGE =========================================
Because of the letter mentioned above I had to take down the photos on
the photo page. I now only have drawings of the band there, but I need
more. If you have any good drawings you have done, please scan them and
send them to me. I will only post the best because that's what
http://www.encycmet.com is all about. I also need photos of your
Metallica collection, your Metallica tattoo or any Metallica related
image (But not with the bandmembers)
For a limited time you can still see the old photos at this secret URL
==== "ENTER SANDMAN" GRAMMY NOMINATED =============================
This year's Grammy voters chose to honor the legendary UK metal band,
Motorhead with a nomination in the Best Metal Performance category for
Enter Sandman,'' a cover of the Metallica classic which
appeared on the album ECW Extreme Music (Slab/CMC International Records).
As it turns out, the actual recording of
Enter Sandman'' features lead
vocals by Motorhead's Lemmy with instrumental backing by the Orange
County, California, punk/rock band Zebrahead. Scheduling conflicts had
made it impossible for all the members of Motorhead to gather at the
recording studio, so Zebrahead (which, like Motorhead, are managed by
Singerman Entertainment) were invited to handle the instrumental portion
of the track.
The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS) is now
crediting the nomination as Motorhead with Zebrahead. Which means that
Zebrahead have officially earned a Grammy nomination.
The other nominees for Best Metal Performance are Black Sabbath ("Iron
Man"), Ministry ("Bad Blood"), Nine Inch Nails ("Starfuckers, Inc."),
and Rob Zombie ("Superbeast").
==== MOST POPULAR RECORDINGS ======================================

==== WEEKLY SURVEY ================================================
I was so angry when I sent out last newsletter because of the letter I
got from Metallica's lawyers, so the question on my weekly poll ended up
with "Which of these two do you think is better?" The result were:
Both the same: 9.84%
Dont know: 3.34%
I am glad to see that 73% of you think my site is better than the
official, but there are still 9% who likes metallica.com best. This is
not good enough. What can I do to be even better? Please post your
thoughts, ideas and views on the general message forum on my site at
http://www.encycmet.com Thank you. A new survey will be up soon.
