Metallica Little Girl Drummer

Metallica Recruits Little Girl To Play The Drums At Detroit Show

Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich better watch his back: he’s got some competition when it comes to percussion!

The drummer brought up a young girl named Kendalynn out of the audience and placed her behind his kit. Ulrich gave her some cues as to what to do while singer James Hetfield pumped the crowd up.

Hetfield seemed a disappointment her contributions were cut short–when Kendalynn resumed her spot in the crowd, he quipped: “Aw, is that all?”

Megadeth Hint At Special Update of Debut Album

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine recently hinted that the band have something special lined-up for a possible new edition of their 1985 debut Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good!.

Mustaine recently undertook a Q&A session on Twitter, during which he first told a fan: “We have plans for something with Killing Is My Business… coming up I’m sure you will like.”

In response, another fan chimed in with: “I imagine a re-recording with [guitarist] Kiko [Loureiro] and [drummer] Dirk [Verbeuren]… Am I wrong?” Mustaine initially replied to this query with “Well, yes” but then said, “No.”

Megadeth’s debut album, released in June 1985, Killing Is My Business… was originally issued by New York City-based Combat Records, known for releasing vinyl by hardcore punk acts such as Circle Jerks and Agnostic Front. Though made on a low budget, the record was critically acclaimed and has since been cited for its role in establishing thrash metal as an authentic subgenre of heavy metal. However, the band were never entirely satisfied and this is not the first time Mustaine has raised the possibility of the band re-recording the album. Back in November 2015, he was asked whether persistent rumours of Megadeth preparing a reissue of Killing Is My Business… were true.

You might not know the iconic synth melody was inspired by Hall & Oates:

“[Eddie] Van Halen told me that he copied the synth part from ‘Kiss on My List’ and used it in ‘Jump.’ I don’t have a problem with that at all,” said Daryl Hall.
