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?”

Happy 70th Birthday, Brian May! 10 Of His Best Guitar Solos

To celebrate the occasion, we’re presenting uDiscover’s piece on Brian May’s discography.


“The best solos are something which you can sing as well as the melody line,” says Brian May, guitarist for rock icons Queen. “The kind of solos I enjoy are where there’s a line which reflects the melody line, but subtly changes it in some way which adds to the song.”

As often, Dr May (surely the only guitar hero with a PhD in astrophysics) is being a little too modest: many of his great solos have not only complemented but transformed the songs they’ve appeared in. By way of celebrating a phenomenal player and all round good guy, uDiscover picks ten of his greatest guitar performances on record with Queen.

The list is in no particular order, but it seems only right to open with ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ to which May contributes not only a remarkable, timeless solo but some of the most brilliant guitar textures to augment the rest of the band, particularly Freddie Mercury’s lead vocals.

Johnny Cash Prisons

Behind Bars: 10 Bands That Have Played Prisons

Many bands dream of playing sold-out stadiums across the world. Some scale it back and play prisons.

Some used the opportunity to protest conditions in the judicial system, and others do it to simply give a glimmer of hope.

Here are 10 performers who have played prisons:


1. The Sex Pistols

The Sex Pistols paid a visit to Chelmsford Top Security Prison in 1976, with video footage being released in 1990. The band got tons of boos from the prisoners, who were probably like the rest of the world in 1976: not quite ready to accept punk.


2. Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash is the most infamous prison performer. While he never served a stint himself (counting seven misdemeanours with each stay lasting only a single night), he’s played for countless amounts of inmates, and became fascinated with Folsom Prison after watching the movie Inside the Walls of Folsom Prison in 1953. Cash even covered the song of one of the inmates–Glen Sherley’s “Greystone Chapel.”
