Migs Blog: Metallica Interview...At HOME!

February 13, 2017

Metallica is coming to Seattle!  If you haven’t heard… Metallica will be at Century Link Field with Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat on Wednesday, August 9th!  Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 AM.  Get all the details you need (including pre-sale info) HERE!

This morning we aired my interview with bassist Robert Trujillo of Metallica.  Full disclosure…this interview was recorded over a month ago…yes I have known about the Metallica show for that long, and I’m proud to say I didn’t let anyone know…I don’t need a pissed off James Hetfield knocking on my door after all!

If you missed the interview...click HERE to check it out!

I recorded this interview in my house…during the holiday break.  I have to say, it was pretty surreal sitting in my pajamas with my pup Lulu…and Robert calls me on my cell phone while he is in another country!

I wanted to bring up that I pre-recorded the Robert interview, because if it was live…of course we would have asked about what happened at the Grammy’s.  What a giant cluster EFF last night.  It was almost like as if the Grammy’s were out to get Metallica! 

Last night, Metallica performed with Lady Gaga…they did their song, “Moth Into Flame” and Gaga sang it along with James…well kinda.

First off the lady that introduced them completely forgot to intro Metallica, she only intro’ed Gaga.  Then…James’ microphone didn’t work for a good chunk of the song!  Check it out…

That being said… I enjoyed Gaga performing with them, and she gets two thumbs up for her outfit!  She looked awesome up there rocking a ‘Tallica shirt!

I was thinking to get ya pumped for the show, I wanted to share a couple songs off their new record, “Hardwired…To Self Destruct”.

In my interview with Robert, we chat about “Spit Out The Bone” – there is an insane bass shredding moment on the song…

Here is “Am I Savage” – I love the groove on this song!

Here is one more off the new record that I love… “Now That We’re Dead”.
