‘The Ultimate Metallica Show’ Recap: ‘Live at Bridge School Benefit 1997′ Listening Party
You know it's a great radio show when you open with Metallica covering Soundgarden's "All Your Lies," and that's not even close to the coolest moment of the broadcast.
We went deep on Reload, tossed out a cover from Weezer and cranked up a heavy live track from Metallica's COPENHELL headlining performance from this past summer. As if that wasn't enough, I pulled out the latest record in the Metallica Vinyl Club, Live at Bridge School Benefit 1997, for a special listening session, and I ended the show with two tracks from the band's recent old-school gig in Florida.
