Ffs, was that article written by a twelve year old?
The comments underneath sum it up nicely.

I think they'll go down well with the audience they get - whatever anyone thinks of any big artist headlining a festival, they are usually there on merit.

What might be more interesting is how big the audience is. I remember when Moby headlined a few years ago. People (perhaps not knowing Moby) thought he would be a bit of a wash out, but he absolutely rocked and went down a storm. But people still probably knew enough of his stuff to be interested in the first place.

I'm just not sure that, comparatively, much Metallica stuff is known to the wider audience as most festival headliners. I think that's what they have to overcome, rather than not actually being any good.

But its the great thing about Glastonbury - the diversity of artists that play over the years. Jay-Z I guess is another example when people weren't convinced, but ended up being incredible. From the moment he took the piss out of Liam (which I don't think they showed on the tv?) the audience were putty in his hands.

it's amazing how a writer can take a bunch of comments and create a brand new one with a different meaning from them. I'm not a metallica fan, but I'm not going to Glastonbury so it doesn't matter to me if they play or not, and the same should apply to anyone else not going. don't watch them on the telly if you don't like em. if you do go to glasto there are umpteen stages and things to do when metallica are playing if you don't like em. who knows, they could do a show that no-one expects and really surprises people. I'm more interested in the dexys set myself, it could be good

btw don letts was sitting near me when I saw prince at one of his secret shows earlier in the year. top bloke
Is it too early to start the Prince to Headline Glastonbury 2015 rumours?

The only thing that made me think he might play this year was the fact that this is the first Glastonbury I'm missing since I started going in 2002.

And yes - Don is a legend. Was great to finally see BAD at Glastonbury a few years ago.

I'd like them to open with Fight Fire With Fire, then go straight into Metal Militia.
Third song would be That Was Just Your Life.

Tbh I think even Moby has fewer recognisable tunes than Metallica.

I just don't understand the furore over it. Huge band play huge festival - what is the issue here?

I think prince is finished with glasto now.

I used to be a big BAD fan, saw them each time they came to town, always front row which was pretty mental full of old punks, and they used to play 1999 as encore. so to sit there in VIP with don letts a couple of seats away was pretty cool. I missed the reunion though. I wanted to go. I still listen to them a fair bit, especially the special edition of the first album

I don't know - for a while there Moby was pretty much everywhere. Wasn't Play famous for being the most album for commercials and the like?

I don't have a problem with Metallica - I just wouldn't be convinced that as many people would know as much Metallica as they might of other artists they weren't necessarily fans of.

My view is that any artist that excels in their given genre are going to be great musicians, and I have no doubt that Metallica are bound to be great live. I think any furore is likely to be largely in the imaginations of the media who want an angle to write about.

Ha! I never knew that about 1999. I never saw them back in the day as I was pretty young, and where I lived was far from the tour circuit. So it was a good bit of nostalgia seeing them at Glastonbury.

I see the weather is flipping typical though - sort of dry and decent, and then that all too familiar cloud seems to have rolled up through the valley. At least I won't feel so bad about not being there this year if its wet!

I would prefer....

So what?
Battery
Blackened
... And Justice For All
The Four Horsemen

That should waken things up a little.....

The furore is media generated because the mainstream media have an innate hatred of Metal, a genre they know very little if anything about, and it covers for their ignorance.

It's hard to argue with Bruce Dickinson when you've got The Guardian making videos like this.

"What is that really famous song of theirs, Sandstorm is it?"

*Dude wearing a Metallica top* "Oh yeah, I love them, favourite songs, um..."
*His friend* "Fade to Black"
*Him* "Oh yeah, Fade to Black"
*His friend" "Enter Sandman"
*Him* "Yeah, Enter Sandman!"

*Finds a guy who says his friend is a huge Metallica fan and goes to interview him*
"I own one of their albums, yeah"
"Which one?"
"I don't know"

"On a scale of 1-11 how metal are you?"
"On one to 11 *finally gets the reference* - oh yeah, 11, definitely!"
"How many Metallica songs can you name?"
"About 4 or 5"

Gotta love the ability of Bruce Dickinson to stir up a real shitstorm

After the boring dirge that's mostly been on so far I want The Pixies and Metallica to liven up Glastonbury a bit.

I forgot about this thread and posted this on the bbc thread earlier. Metallica have a couple of new t-shirts and the back has some of the negative comments made about their Glastonbury appearance. Even their mascot has wellies. http://shop.probitymerch.com/stores/...eta760_uk.html

Strangely enough, so am I. I wish they'd get rid of those ridiculous flags though. Most other festivals have banned them.

Dark clouds in background, maybe some lightning or a clap of thunder to welcome Metallica..that would be 'awesome'.
