"Hey, you've got to hear this."
Those were the words of my friend Joe. It was the summer of 1984 and he had come over to spend a few hours playing videos games in my parents' basement. He'd brought with him his older brother's new cassette, "Metallica - Ride The Lightning". I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I was already drawn to the heavier bands of the day, but there was always something missing, even if I couldn't put my finger on what "it" was.
Hard to believe that day was thirty-four years ago (!!!). They've still got "it". #MetInBudapest #Metallica #WorldWired #PapaHet #spitoutthebone #Budapest #Hungary #Commodore64 #imoldnow
