Man, that just brought the tune 'the years of decay' to mind, I think I had forgotten about it the best part of 30 years. What a tune.

Sorry, back on topic now!

Sad but True came on the radio the other evening and it got me thinking.... when the rare occasion occurs that Metallica are played on mainstream radio, it is invariably Enter Sandman or NEM. Barring SBT, the only other songs I can remember being played are Whiskey and (strangely?) Hero of the Day. Anyone heard any deeper cuts?

'One' used to get played quite a bit in the late 80's, though I cannot recall now whether that was that on MTV or on the radio, most likely the former.

Its gets played on Nova once in a blue moon.

I've also heard Wherever I May Roam.

..and The Day that Never Comes was given a spin when Death Magnetic was released.

Thin Lizzy's Eric Bell has come out and branded Metallica “a pack of b******s” for not paying him for an appearance at their Dublin show, 20 years ago.

He told the Irish Sun that he joined METALLICA on their private plane as they made their way from the U.K. to Dublin. He expected to receive around 2000 euros (approximately $2,200) for his appearance — although he admitted that there was no agreement on the fee.

As much as I like Bell, to be quietly expecting money without anything written in stone and complaining about it twenty years after the fact is a bit daft really.

But there's a book to be promoted so...

They gave him a "Ball" of merch. Had he signed it and sold it to fans, there would have been potential to make more than 2K

Think it's fine, he didn't outright ask for money.

I love Bell era Lizzy but the guy isn't exactly business savvy as shown down through the years.
