As we are about six months away from the 2023 edition of the famed New York Comic Con, I like to compile videos for each of the days that were attended and load them up onto our Official YouTube. This serves a double purpose as it not only helps generate some excitement about the upcoming event but also brings some nostalgia about the previous happening to those who attended.

The Press Release:
Metallica appeared on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show today, sitting down with Howard Stern and co-host Robin Quivers for an interview and jam session spanning the length of the legendary heavy metal act’s career.

Front man and rhythm guitarist James Hetfield, drummer Lars Ulrich, guitarist Kirk Hammett, and bassist Robert Trujillo opened up about everything from the band’s early aversion toward MTV to how they perfected the riff for “Enter Sandman,” the band also performed a Bob Seger cover, an acoustic rendition of a classic “…And Justice for All” track, and a single off their forthcoming album “72 Seasons.”

Metallica Credits Their Big Break to Ozzy Osbourne:

“[Ozzy] was known to bring out bands that were on the verge of breaking. The time before he took us out he took Mötley Crüe out … It was our turn in ’86,” Lars said, crediting Ozzy and his wife Sharon Osbourne for being “kind enough to take us out and give us that shot.”
“The first show was in Wichita, Kansas — there we were in front of 15,000 people in the middle of America and we couldn’t believe it,” Lars continued. “We opened with ‘Battery’ and … ‘Master of Puppets.’ The first couple songs, [the crowd] was kind of looking up going, ‘What is this racket?’ And then 45 minutes later they were all moving their fists and getting into it.”

Hanging with Ozzy and the other A-list people in his orbit, Metallica knew they had finally made it. “We’d been playing in the minors for years, and now we were in the majors,” Lars concluded.
