Self-proclaimed “guy that’s been listening to your band faithfully since 1983″ Dave Grohl has apparently sent an open letter to Metallica pleading with them to not release their new album until they’re sure it’s good, a rule that they haven’t really been following for the past 10 years or so.
Hey, it’s Dave! Remember me? Yeah, I’m the guy that’s been listening to your band faithfully since 1983. I bought your first album ‘Kill ‘Em All’ from a mailorder catalogue called Under The Rainbow, I think. Actually I can’t remember. It was 1983 for Christsakes! But that album changed my life and I’ve been listening to your albums ever since (even ‘St Anger’!).
I can’t wait to hear the new shit, and no matter what you guys do I’ll always be first one at the shop waiting to hear it. I’m sure you’ll come out and blow everybody’s fuckin’ minds, because you’re fuckin’ METALLICA!
Good luck. And don’t release it until it’s kick-ass.
Yours, Dave Grohl.
P.S. Are you finished recording the drums yet?
I’m not really sure who he’s trying to mess with here, but that P.S. sounds kinda… ominous. Watch out, Lars–you know that Dave Grohl thinks he’s THE BEST, THE BEST, THE BEST… right?
