Metallica in the WSJ

One of the greybeards around here enjoys metal — to the point that one of the highlights of the amazing series “Bns” (who knew you could make a show about hedgies semi-authentic and dramatically compelling?) was the surprise guest appearance of Metallica. Imagine said greybeard’s delight to wake this morning and find Metallica featured in the Wall Street Journal (paywall), complete with a micro-interview with drummer Lars Ulrich. ‘Hardwired…To Self-Destruct’ — the group’s new album and its “first major studio record released on its own label” — is due out on Friday. Singles are already on Apple Music. Sad fat: The Journal tells us that not only has Garth Brooks sold more records than Metallica — he’s outsold the Beatles. There is no accounting for taste. If you’ve not checked out Bns, you’ve got time to get hooked and binge on season one before season two comes out on 19 February 2017.
