Reporting from Rasputin in Mountain View, Laurence Scott lets us know Metallica still has “old-school analog values” and “being a hardcore fan never goes out of style.” That’s why they showed up to sign autographs and talk about the importance of record stores as social hubs during this past weekend’s Record Store Day. Kirk’s hair has seen better days, but dude still has a baby face and youthful exuberance. Same goes for James Hetfield, though it’s his facial hair that’s seen better days, etc. Lars? Lars doesn’t get to talk on camera because he’s the drummer. Not that that usually stops him.
See you guys at Bonnaroo.
