PHUQING MEGA COOL
By: Joakim Norberg
I really missed Until it sleeps and Hero of the day, and I must say i was
lil dissapointed at the last song, the crowd
shouted "Seek and Destry" and James said "OKEY", but they played
battery... But no really big deal, it was an hell
of a show, Kirk was the coolest I think.
Lars did a real clumsy thing, when he put his glass of lemonade on the
stage and should kick it out to the crowd, he
did a bad kick (remember whiskey in the jar, hehe he's not good at
kickin') and he got eveything over himself in some
way, Jason went crazy and started to laugh at Lars so he was little angry

==== INTERVIEW ====================================================
Interview with Lars Ulrich 20 minutes before he goes on stage in Norway.
The interview was done online by the norwegian newspaper VG (www.vg.no).
The questions were submitted by people over the internet.
Q: Are you happy with the Justice album?
LARS: Here I am. Let's get started. When i hear the intro of Blackened i
begain to shiver too. But for differnt reason. It's the only record i've
made that i can't listen to. It's the way it sounds...It's sounds thin and
Q: what is the most spectackular gig your ever had?
LARS: Moscow, russia. September 1991. 600 000 people, 25000 police, 1
great day! My favourite stage the one in my basement.
Q: For how long have you been playing drums?
LARS: I've played the drums for 22 years. Practice as little as possible,
and i get bored of touring all the time. But then i just access the
internet to answer exciting questions.
Q: Kill 'em all was good. Ride the lightening was great. Master of the
puppets was excellent! And Justice for All was great. 'Black album'
SUCKED! you became commercial and only did boring slow ballads, and so it
went on. In other words, you turned on your original fans that loved your
agressive music in favour of the broad mass of mainstream goofers. My
question is why? and was there any concientious planning behind the change?
LARS: Make no mistake about it, my friend! We have never ever done this
for anybody other than ourselves. Not Kill'em All, Not Garage Inc. Nothing
In Between. So since we have never done it for anybody other than
ourselves we have not turned our backs to anybody.
Q: Will you play Whiskey in the Jar today?
LARS: No, I dont's think we'll do that tonight. Infact I don't think we'll
play that song on this tour at all. Maybe the next one! Come and see us
then. I'm sorry but that was all time i had. I have to be on stage in five
minutes. Then i'm gonne give Oslo the greatest two and a half hour consert
they ever will see.
