Cool Iron Maiden

One pleasant surprise with Maiden's new album was that the band did not change their trademark sound style and sound much at all to please radio programmers and the like for the sake of trendiness, showing that they were not about to deviate from their tried-and-true path, like so many of their peers (such as Metallica). Maiden were in fact beginning to focus on their strengths as a band and came out with something more compelling than what was popular. Fans were not disappointed. However, this was the era of NU-metal (call it sNUze-metal ), and while most major cities on the tours reported sell-out or near sell-out shows, some venues, such as the Tacoma Dome in the major port city of Tacoma, about 40 miles south of Seattle, were rather underattended. nearly half of the Dome was sectioned off to hold a beer garden on the empty side. It was disappointing that the band did not fill to capacity, as it would have ten years before, but then again, this was Seattle, (or Tacoma, to be specific), the Grunge-town which had built a notorious reputation for being against all things metal, according to common perception. But now a new form of "metal" had long supplanted grunge, and it appeared unlikely that fans of Korn and Limp Bizkit were going to give the time of the day to any band that didn't measure up to their impression of mall-jammer metal. Maiden was frustrated that radio ignored them for years though they were mainstays of metal only ten years before. The band was being embraced for their epic progressive metal all over the world, though for the most part underrepresented by the mainstream in America.

At the concert held there in September of 2000, Bruce Dickinson went on his onstage rants addressing the frustrating problem affecting the music industry, saying he was sick to death of all things ranging from Hollywood's version of music, J-Lo (who was known for what she *wasn't* wearing with a provocative dress at the Grammies), and Korn, the new overhyped leaders of trendoid rap-metal. Where was the real metal? Pretty much the Maiden were playing it! One highbrow concert reviewer poked fun at Dickinson's comment that in spite of naysayers saying that "metal was dead", the singer announced, "Look up, the (metal) resurgence is all around you!" The reviewer pointed out that he was saying that to a half-capacity crowd! Some metal resurgence, huh? Regardless, the crowd may have been smaller than anticipated, but they were seriously hardcore-and wild!! A mosh-pit, something new for Maiden, even formed near the front. Dickinson appeared to be pointing out a troublemaker near the front of the stage, saying "All right, that's beautiful, sport, I'll have to come down, tear off your head and s down your neck!!" (A line he obviously borrowed from the 1983 comedy movie "Dr. Detroit" starring Dan Aykroyd.) I found out later that there was no troublemaker, that was one of his little onstage quips to get people worked up to make the show more exciting. It was already exciting--it was the MAIDEN!!! The set was designed like a post-apocalyptic city in ruins, during a few songs, Dickinson (now sporting short hair rather than his long locks from years before), jumped on pullies fasted to bar railings and slid across the length of the bars. The band focused on many songs from the Blaze Bailey era of Maiden, as Bruce said at the show he didn't want to focus on the older, familiar material, though they did play much of that. On their hit "The Trooper", one enthusiastic fan did a drum solo on my back!


All in all, it doesn't take much to have a metal resurgence, does it?

The Ghost Of the Navigator

I have sailed to many lands, now I make my final journey
On the bow I stand, west is where I go
Through the night I plough, still my heart, calculate and pray
As the compass swings, my will is strong, I will not be led astray
Mysteries of time clouds that hide the sun
But I know, but I know, but I know

I see the ghosts of navigators but they are lost
As they sail into the sunset they'll count the cost
As their skeletons accusing emerge from the sea
The sirens of the rocks, they beckon me

Take my heart and set it free, carried forward by the waves
Nowhere left to run, navigator's son,
Chasing rainbows all my days

Where I go I do not know, I only know the place I've been
Dreams they come and go, ever shall be so,
Nothing's real until you feel

I steer between the crashing rocks, the sirens call my name
Lash my hands onto the helm, blood surging with the strain
I will not fail now as sunrise comes the darkness left behind
For eternity I follow on there is no other way
Mysteries of time clouds that hide the sun
But I know, I know

I see the ghosts of navigators but they are lost
As they sail into the sunset they'll count the cost
As their skeletons accusing emerge from the sea
The sirens of the rocks, they beckon me

Take my heart and set it free, carried forward by the waves
Nowhere left to run, Navigator's son
Chasing rainbows all my days

Where I go I do not know, I only know the place I've been
Dreams they come and go, ever shall be so
Nothing's real until you feel

I see the ghosts of navigators but they are lost
As they sail into the sunset they'll count the cost
As their skeletons accusing emerge from the sea
The sirens of the rocks, they beckon me

Take my heart and set it free, carried forward by the waves
Nowhere left to run, Navigator's son
Chasing rainbows all my days

Where I go I do not know, I only know the place I've been
Dreams they come and go, ever shall be so
Nothing's real until you feel

Music Steely Dan - Two Against Nature

On February 29, 2000 - Leap Day - Steely Dan, guitarist/bassist Walter Becker and keyboardist/vocalist Donald Faigen, leapt back into the limelight with Two Against Nature, their first album of new material in twenty years.

Two Against Nature was a long time coming but worth the wait, as it contained some of Becker and Faigen's sharpest songs since Pretzel Logic. As always, the songs were about dubious, twisted individuals. "Cousin Dupree," the album's first single, was about a musician attracted to his sexy cousin; "Janie Runaway" celebrated the joys of a relationship with a missing minor; "Whht A Shame About Me," one of the tamer songs on the album, chronicled a college-educated loser.

Despite all of this, Two Against Nature won the Album of the Year Grammy in 2001.

Cousin Dupree - Steely Dan

Well I've kicked around a lot since high school,
I've worked a lot of nowhere gigs.
From keyboard man in a rock'n ska band
To haulin' boss crude in the big rigs.
Now I've come back home to plan my next move
From the comfort of my Aunt Faye's couch,
When I see my little cousin Janine walk in,
All I could say was "Ow-ow-ouch!"

(CHORUS)
Honey how you've grown,
Like a rose.
Well we used to play
When we were three,
How about a kiss for your cousin Dupree?

She turned my life into a living hell
In those little tops and tight capris,
I pretended to be readin' the National Probe
As I was watchin' her wax her skis.
On Saturday night she walked in with her date
And backs him up against the wall,
I tumbled off the couch and heard myself sing
In a voice I never knew I had before.

(CHORUS)

I'll teach you everything I know
If you teach me how to do that dance
Life is short and quid pro quo
And what's so strange about a down-home family romance?

One night we're playin' gin by a cracklin' fire,
And I decided to make my play .
I said, "Babe, with my boyish charm and good looks,
How can you stand it for one more day?"
She said, "Maybe its the skeevy look in your eyes,
Or that your mind has turned to applesauce. . .
The dreary architecture of your soul."
I said - "But what is it exactly turns you off?"

(CHORUS)

How about a kiss for your cousin Dupree?
How about a kiss for your cousin Dupree?


Janie Runaway - Steely Dan

It must have been my lucky Thursday,
Your dad went on that spree.
Before the crew could put out the fires
You hopped a bus for NYC.
Down in Tampa the future looked desperate and dark,
Now you're the wonderwaif of Gramercy Park.

Who makes the morning fabulous?
Who says today's a fun day?
Why do I feel like sailing again?
Honey it's you - Janie Runaway.

Let's grab some takeout from Dean and DeLuca,
A hearty gulping wine.
You be the showgirl and I'll be Sinatra
Way back in '59.
Sweetness in heels - look at you - in long black gloves.
Come to Ol' Blue eyes, tell me - who do you love?

Who makes the traffic interesting,
Rescues a dreary Sunday?
Who makes me feel like painting again?
Honey it's you - Janie Runaway.

Let's plan a weekend alone together,
Drive out to Binky's place.
The sugar shack in Pennsylvania. . .
Or would that be a federal case?
We'll take the Big Red - the Blazer - it's nice inside.
And guess who's coming along for the ride.

Who has a friend named Melanie?
Who's not afraid to try new things?
Who gets to spend her birthday in Spain?
Possibly you - Janie Runaway.

What a Shame About Me - Steely Dan

I was grinding through my day gig
Stackin' cutouts at the Strand,
When in walks Franny from NYU,
We were quite an item back then.
We talked about her films and shows and CDs
And I don't know what else
She said, "Yeah, Hollywood's been good to me,
But tell me - how about yourself?"

"I'm still working on that novel
But I'm just about to quit,
'Cause I'm worrying about the future now,
Or maybe this is it.
It's not all that I thought it would be. . .
What a shame about me.

She said, "Talk to me, do you ever see
Anybody else from our old crew?
Bobby Dakine won the Bunsen Prize,
Now he's coming out with something new.
Alan owns a chain of Steamer Heavens,
And Barry is the software king.
And somebody told me in the early 80's
You were gonna be the Next Big Thing."

"Well now that was just a rumor,
But I guess I'm doin' fine
Three weeks out of the rehab,
Living one day at a time.
Sneaking up on the new century. . .
What a shame about me.

What a shame about me.
I'm thinking of a major Jane Street sunrise,
And the goddess on the fire escape was you.

We both ran out of small talk,
The connection seemed to go dead
I was about to say, "Hey, have a nice life,"
When she touched my hand and said:
"You know I just had this great idea,
This could be very cool.
Why don't we grab a cab to my hotel
And make believe we're back at our old school?"

I said, "Babe, you look delicious,
And you're standing very close.
But like this is Lower Broadway
And you're talking to a ghost.
Take a good look it's easy to see. . .
What a shame about me,
What a shame about me.

(All songs by Becker and Faigen.)

Cool Iron Maiden

Fans expecting to hear more of the same old, same old Maiden tune-age were about to be disappointed, while the newer music of the latest album and the recent ones of the past several years were featured in the setlist. Maiden, who were entering in a new progressive metal phase, were all about progressing. They would play their old favorites, of course, but they were not about to become a nostalgia band. Though their heyday was about fifteen years before, they were focused on the now. They were making a huge comeback and were not about to be thought of as a relic in the new century. Their new tour contained many surprises, such as the giant wicker Eddie filled with lovely damsels in white who waved from inside their cage of sticks. After they played their signature song "Iron Maiden", a required encore, the women were let out of the wicker cage to wave to the crowd, before Bruce said, "All right, now, back into the cage! We have to burn
the whole lot of ya!"

Brave New World

Dying swans twisted wings, beauty not needed here
Lost my love, lost my life, in this garden of fear
I have seen many things, in a lifetime alone
Mother love is no more, bring this savage back home

Wilderness house of pain, makes no sense of it all
Close this mind dull this brain, Messiah before his fall
What you see is not real, those who know will not tell
All is lost sold your souls to this brave new world

A brave new world, in a brave new world
A brave new world, in a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world

Dragon kings dying queens, where is salvation now
Lost my life lost my dreams, rip the bones from my flesh
Silent screams laughing here, dying to tell you the truth
You are planned and you are damned in this brave new world

A brave new world, in a brave new world
A brave new world, in a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world

A brave new world, in a brave new world
A brave new world, in a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world

Dying swans twisted wings, bring this savage back home

Blood Brothers

And if you're taking a walk through the garden of life
What do you think you'd expect you would see?
Just like a mirror reflecting the moves of your life
And in the river reflections of me

Just for a second a glimpse of my father I see
And in a movement he beckons to me
And in a moment the memories are all that remain
And all the wounds are reopening again

We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers
We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers

And as you look all around at the world in dismay
What do you see, do you think we have learned
Not if you're taking a look at the war-torn affray
Out in the streets where the babies are burned

We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers
We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers

There are time when I feel I'm afraid for the world
There are times I'm ashamed of us all
When you're floating on all the emotion you feel
And reflecting the good and the bad

Will we ever know what the answer to life really is?
Can you really tell me what life is?
Maybe all the things that you know that are precious to you
Could be swept away by fate's own hand

We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers
We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers

When you think that we've used all our chances
And the chance to make everything right
Keep on making the same old mistakes
Makes untipping the balance so easy
When we're living our lives on the edge
Say a prayer on the book of the dead

We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers
We're blood brothers, we're blood brothers

And if you're taking a walk through the garden of life....

Cool Iron Maiden

The show in Tacoma was opened by Halford, fronted by former Judas Priest lead vocalist Rob Halford, and Seattle's own Queensryche. Rob Halford had an amazing stage presence, as did Geoff Tate of Queensryche. Rob even sang a few Priest tunes as well. All in all, everone had a great, wild evening of rock. For Halford's set, I noticed two short women near the who I could tell were lesbians, no doubt there to support Rob as a fellow gay artist. When the crowd got a little carried away and nearly erupted into a mosh pit, I was sure that the two women were going to get eaten up and crushed in the pit!! I'm pretty sure they got out okay.

It is interesting that the author of the dystopian novel "Brave New World", Aldous Huxley, and the author of "Out Of the Silent Planet" and "The Chronicles Of Narnia", C.S. Lewis, died on the same day as John F. Kennedy, on November 22nd, 1963. "Out Of the Silent Planet" was a title from Lewis' Space Trilogy, about how evil was introduced to an alien race on Venus.

Out Of the Silent Planet

Out of the silent planet, out of the silent planet we are
Out of the silent planet, out of the silent planet we are
Out of the silent planet, out of the silent planet we are
Out of the silent planet, out of the silent planet we are

Withered hands, withered bodies begging for salvation
Deserted by the hand of gods of their own creation
Nations cry underneath decaying skies above
You are guilty, the punishment is death for all who live
The punishment is death for all who live

Out of the silent planet, dreams of desolation
Out of the silent planet, Come the demons of creation
Out of the silent planet, dreams of desolation
Out of the silent planet, Come the demons of creation

The killing fields, the grinding wheels crushed by equilibrium
Separate lives no more disguise, no more second chances
Haggard wisdom spitting out the bitter taste of hate
I accuse you before you know the crime it's all too late
Before you know the crime it's all too late

Out of the silent planet, dreams of desolation
Out of the silent planet, Come the demons of creation
Out of the silent planet, dreams of desolation
Out of the silent planet, Come the demons of creation

Out of the silent planet, out of the silent planet we are
Out of the silent planet, out of the silent planet we are

Out of the silent planet, dreams of desolation
Out of the silent planet, Come the demons of creation
Out of the silent planet, dreams of desolation
Out of the silent planet, Come the demons of creation

Out of the silent planet, out of the silent planet we are
Out of the silent planet, out of the silent planet we are
Out of the silent planet, out of the silent planet we are
Out of the silent planet, out of the silent planet we are
Out of the silent planet, out of the silent planet we are
Out of the silent planet, out of the silent planet we are

The Thin Line Between Love and Hate

When a person turns to wrong, is it a want to be, belong?
Part of things at any cost, at what price a life is lost

At what point do we begin, fighter spirit a will to win
But what makes a man decide, take the wrong or righteous road

There's a thin line between love and hate
Wider divide that you can see between good and bad
There's a grey place between black and white
But everyone does have the right to choose the path that he takes

We all like to put the blame on society these days
But what kind of good or bad a new generation brings

Sometimes take just more than that to survive be good at heart
There is evil in some of us no matter what will never change

I will hope, my soul will fly, so I will live forever
Heart will die, my soul will fly, and I will live forever

Just a few small tears between someone happy and one sad
Just a thin line drawn between being a genius or insane

At what age begin to learn of which way out we will turn
There's a long and winding road and the trail is there to burn

There's a thin line between love and hate
Wider divide that you can see between good and bad
There's a grey place between black and white
But everyone does have the right to choose the path that he takes

I will hope, my soul will fly, so I will live forever
Heart will die, my soul will fly, and I will live forever

I will hope, my soul will fly, so I will live forever
Heart will die, my soul will fly, and I will live forever

The thin line between love and hate

The thin line between love and hate


Their concert encore, required at every Maiden show:

Iron Maiden
from their 1980 debut:

Won't you come into my room, I wanna show you all my wares.
I just want to see your blood, I just want to stand and stare.
See the blood begin to flow as it falls upon the floor.
Iron Maiden can't be faught, Iron Maiden can't be sought.

[Chorus]
Oh Well, wherever, wherever you are,
Iron Maiden's gonna get you, no matter how far.
See the blood flow watching it shed up above my head.
Iron Maiden wants you for dead.

Won't you come into my room, I wanna show you all my wares.
I just want to see your blood, I just want to stand and stare.
See the blood begin to flow as it falls upon the floor.
Iron Maiden can't be fought, Iron Maiden can't be sought.

Red face ...And Justice For WHO?? Metallica sues Napster!!

In 2000, Metallica found themselves embroiled in the biggest drop to their credibility ever since they cut their hair several years before. The band had discovered an incomplete demo version of their song "I Disappear" for the 'Mission Impossible: 2' soundtrack had been leaked to the internet without their knowledge or consent. Even more disturbing, they found that their entire catalogue was available online, and that listeners were free to download them through the music file-sharing site Napster. This meant one thing: Metallica were not receiving any royalties from the free downloading of their songs. People could burn discs full of their music and the band would not get a penny. And neither would many other artists if this service remained available. It was feared that downloading technology, MP3's and the like, would be the end of the record industry. How did anyone stand to make any money as musicians if this trend continued?

The band prompted legal action against Napster and demanded that 300,000 Napster users found to be trading Metallica songs be banned from the network. Several universities using Napster also received legal warnings. Fans were appalled--many people just wanting to hear a Metallica song were not doing online music piracy. They felt the band's actions were grossly unfair. This created a huge backlash against the band--wasn't this, after all, the up-and-coming thrashers in the early 80's who promoted and encouraged cassette tape trading among fans at shows? This was exactly how underground metal bands affected by the New Wave Of Heavy Metal and early thrash gained a public following. Now with the new technology available to promote new music, what could be the problem? Simple: Metallica were no longer the dudes in jeans slumming along in the Bay Area between club gigs back then, they were the biggest band on the planet. They were millionaires with mansions and artwork, and they had to make a living, too. The actions of the band over Napster users convinced fans and former fans that Metallica were all about money and greed.

All over the internet cartoons satirizing the band as selfish louts who no longer cared about their fans sprouted all over the internet such as one entitled "Napster Bad!" Lars, or "Lar$", Ulrich was depicted as a weasely character chirping out warnings about downloading their songs on Napster, while James Hetfield was featured as his lunk-headed lackey who bellowed out, "Napster bad!" like a lobotomized simian. In retaliation to the controversy, Ulrich appeared during the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards, in a skit with that year's host Marlon Wayans, that blasted the idea of using Napster to share music. Marlon played a college student sitting in his dorm room, listening to Metallica's "I Disappear". Ulrich, playing himself, walked in and asked for an explanation. Upon receiving Wayans' excuse that using Napster was just "sharing", Lars retorted that Marlon's idea of sharing was simply borrowing things that weren't yours without asking. He called in the Metallica road crew, who proceeded to confiscate all Wayans' belongings, leaving him almost nude in an empty room. Napster creator Shawn Fanning responded later in the ceremony by presenting an award wearing a Metallica shirt, saying "I borrowed this shirt from a friend. Maybe, if I like it, I'll buy one of my own".

Cool 'Mission: Impossible 2'

The sequel to the movie 'Mission: Impossible", 2000's 'Mission: Impossible 2',starring Tom Cruise, another entertainment figure facing as much controversy in the new decade as Metallica, featured both songs by Metallica, "I Disappear" and the updated theme song performed by Limp Bizkit. In another twist of events, Metallica were one of the few metal bands who championed rock's leading fratboy juveniles. Imagine that happening in 1983.

I Disappear
by Metallica

Hey, hey, hey
Here I go now
Here I go in to new days
Hey, hey, hey
Here I go now
Here I go into new days

Angry Limp Bizkit--Chocolate Starfish And the Hot Dog Flavored Water

Speaking of which, Fresh off the Woodstock '99 debacle, Limp Bizkit, the world's worst, most over-hyped rap-with-guitars band touted as "the future of metal", released their third album Chocolate Starfish And the Hot Dog Flavored Water, one of the most insipid names for an album in 2000. Well, not so insipid when it was claimed that the album title was a cryptic sexual reference. At that point, as the band was becoming major players with much clout in the industry, vocalist Fred Durst, the most obnoxious white-trash rapper punk in the history of music (who gave Vanilla Ice and Eminem a run for their money), became embroiled in very public feuds with other notable members of the rock community, such as Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails (which gave basis to the belief that Durst practiced mafia-style tactics in the music industry), the members of Slipknot, Ozzy Osbourne's guitarist Zakk Wylde, physical violence with Creed frontman Scott Stapp, verbal wars with rapper Eminem, and later, Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden. In addition, the band Taproot released on their website an answering machine message that Durst had left on the lead singer's phone as a 'revenge' for ending their record company contract with his record label. The feud with Zakk Wylde wasn't really started by Durst, however, it was started because of Wylde going around in the press talking less than favorably about the band.

Durst's confrontation with the drummer Clown of Slipknot nearly got physical when the frontman criticized Slipknot's fans of being "ugly fat kids". Durst later downplayed the squabble, but it provided noteriety and publicity for him.
The antics would get uglier as time went on. As for the album, songs included
were "My Generation" (no relation to The Who song), "My Way", "Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle)", and the previously-mentioned "Take a Look Around" from 'M: I-2'. Other songs such as "Hot Dog" were rife with profanity, with samples of Nine Inch Nails' "Closer". The album made #11 on the list of Top Worst Albums in Q Magazine. The video for "Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle)" was directed by Fred Durst at the World Trade Center in late 2000. The video won the award for best rock video at the 2000 MTV Video Awards.

The album made #11 on the list of Top Worst Albums in Q Magazine.

Exclamation Lars Ulrich testifies before the Senate concerning Napster

Were Metallica in a position to complain about stolen artistic product and royalties from sources like Napster? Was it more than just being "rich rock stars"?

Metallica's drummer Lars Ulrich testified before the U.S. Senate regarding Napster's practices and impact in the summer of 2000:


LARS' TESTIMONY TO THE SENATE
Statement of Lars Ulrich before the Committee on the Judiciary United States Senate July 11, 2000. The statement can also be found on the official site at http://www.senate.gov/~judiciary/7112000_lu.htm


Mr. Chairman, Senator Leahy, Members of the Committee, my name is Lars Ulrich. I was born in Denmark. In 1980, as a teenager, my parents and I came to America. I started a band named Metallica in 1981 with my best friend James Hetfield. By 1983 we had released our first record, and by 1985 we were no longer living below the poverty line. Since then, we've been very fortunate to achieve a great level of success in the music business throughout the world. It's the classic American dream come true. I'm very honored to be here in this country, and to appear in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee today.

Earlier this year, while completing work on a song for the movie Mission Impossible-2, we were startled to hear reports that a work-in- progress version was already being played on some U.S radio stations. We traced the source of this leak to a corporation called Napster. Additionally, we learned that all of our previously recorded copyrighted songs were, via Napster, available for anyone around the world to download from the Internet in a digital format known as MP3. As you are probably aware, we became the first artists to sue Napster, and have been quite vocal about it as well. That's undoubtedly why you invited me to this hearing.

We have many issues with Napster. First and foremost: Napster hijacked our music without asking. They never sought our permission-our catalog of music simply became available as free downloads on the Napster system.

I don't have a problem with any artist voluntarily distributing his or her songs through any means the artist elects-- at no cost to the consumer, if that's what the artist wants. But just like a carpenter who crafts a table gets to decide whether to keep it, sell it or give it away , shouldn't we have the same options? My band authored the music which is Napster's lifeblood. We should decide what happens to it, not Napster -- a company with no rights in our recordings, which never invested a penny in Metallica's music or had anything to do with its creation. The choice has been taken away from us.

What about the users of Napster, the music consumers? It's like each of them won one of those contests where you get turned loose in a store for five minutes and get to keep everything you can load into your shopping cart. With Napster, though, there's no time limit and everyone's a winner-except the artist. Every song by every artist is available for download at no cost and, of course, with no payment to the artist, the songwriter or the copyright holder.

If you're not fortunate enough to own a computer, there's only one way to assemble a music collection the equivalent of a Napster user's: theft. Walk into a record store, grab what you want and walk out. The difference is that the familiar phrase a computer user hears, "File's done," is replaced by another familiar phrase-"You're under arrest."

Since what I do is make music, let's talk about the recording artist for a moment. When Metallica makes an album we spend many months and many hundreds of thousands of our own dollars writing and recording. We also contribute our inspiration and perspiration. It's what we do for a living. Even though we're passionate about it, it's our job.

We typically employ a record producer, recording engineers, programmers, assistants and, occasionally, other musicians. We rent time for months at recording studios which are owned by small businessmen who have risked their own capital to buy, maintain and constantly upgrade very expensive equipment and facilities. Our record releases are supported by hundreds of record company employees and provide programming for numerous radio and television stations. Add it all up and you have an industry with many jobs--a very few glamorous ones like ours -- and a greater number of demanding ones covering all levels of the pay scale for wages which support families and contribute to our economy.

Remember too, that my band, Metallica, is fortunate enough to make a great living from what it does. Most artists are barely earning a decent wage and need every source of revenue available to scrape by. Also keep in mind that the primary source of income for most songwriters is from the sale of records. Every time a Napster enthusiast downloads a song, it takes money from the pockets of all these members of the creative community.

It's clear, then, that if music is free for downloading, the music industry is not viable; all the jobs I just talked about will be lost and the diverse voices of the artists will disappear. The argument I hear a lot, that "music should be free," must then mean that musicians should work for free. Nobody else works for free. Why should musicians?

In economic terms, music is referred to as intellectual property, as are films, television programs, books, computer software, video games, and the like. As a nation, the U.S has excelled in the creation of intellectual property, and collectively, it is this country's most valuable export.

The backbone for the success of our intellectual property business is the protection that Congress has provided with the copyright statutes. No information-based industry can thrive without this protection. Our current political dialog about trade with China is focused on how we must get that country to respect and enforce copyrights. How can we continue to take that position if we let our own copyright laws wither in the face of technology?

Make no mistake, Metallica is not anti-technology. When we made our first album, the majority of sales were in the vinyl record format. By the late 1980's, cassette sales accounted for over 50% of the market. Now, the compact disc dominates. If the next format is a form of digital downloading from the Internet with distribution and manufacturing savings passed on to the American consumer, then, of course, we will embrace that format too.

But how can we embrace a new format and sell our music for a fair price when someone, with a few lines of code, and no investment costs, creative input or marketing expenses, simply gives it away? How does this square with the level playing field of the capitalist system? In Napster's brave new world, what free market economy models support our ability to compete? The touted "new paradigm" that the Internet gurus tell us we Luddites must adopt sounds to me like old-fashioned trafficking in stolen goods.

We have to find a way to welcome the technological advances and cost savings of the Internet while not destroying the artistic diversity and the international success that has made our intellectual property industries the greatest in the world. Allowing our copyright protections to deteriorate is, in my view, bad policy, both economically and artistically.

To underscore what I've spoken about today, I'd like to read from the "Terms of Use" section of the Napster Internet web site. When you use Napster you are basically agreeing to a contract that includes the following terms:

"This web site or any portion of this web site may not be reproduced, duplicated, copied, sold, resold, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose that is not expressly permitted by Napster."

"All Napster web site design, text, graphics, the selection and arrangement thereof, and all Napster software are CopyrightÓ 1999-00 Napster Inc. All rights reserved Napster Inc."

"Napster, the logo and all other trademarks, service marks and trade names of Napster appearing on this web site are owned by Napster. Napster's trademarks, logos, service marks, and trade names may not be used in connection with any product or service that is not Napster's.

Napster itself wants--and surely deserves--copyright and trademark protection. Metallica and other creators of music and intellectual property want, deserve and have a right to that same protection.

In closing, I'd like to read to you from the last paragraph of a New York Times column by Edward Rothstein:

"Information doesn't want to be free; only the transmission of information wants to be free. Information, like culture, is the result of a labor and devotion, investment and risk; it has a value. And nothing will lead to a more deafening cultural silence than ignoring that value and celebrating….[companies like] Napster running amok."

Mr. Chairman, Senator Leahy and Members of the Committee, the title of today's hearing asks the question, "The Future of the Internet: Is there an Upside to Downloading"? My answer is yes. However, as I hope my remarks have made clear, this can only occur when artists' choices are respected and their creative efforts protected.


Thank you.

Cool Pantera--Reinventing the Steel

Like Iron Maiden, true metal began to show a huge resurgence in popularity with the release of Reinventing the Steel by Pantera in 2000. If there was anyone to be credited with keeping a struggling genre alive in the '90's, it was Pantera. Metallica had "sold out" to many fans with the haircuts, alternative fashions, and abandoning of thrash during the past ten years, but Pantera were selling out arenas with their uncompromising brand of high-octane metal. The new disc featured standout tracks such as "Revolution Is My Name", "Goddamn Electric", "Yesterday Don't Mean S", "We'll Grind That Axe For a Long Time", and "I'll Cast a Shadow". Phil, Dime, and Co. weren't about to listen to the record company and their pleas to do trendy rap-metal like everyone else was doing. As Phil Anselmo said in concert in Seattle the following year, "I'll kill those (rap-metallers) with my bare hands!"

But all was not well in the Pantera camp. Over the past several years since 1996's The Great Southern Trendkill, Phil Anselmo was distancing himself from the band. He was more interested in doing other projects such his side band Down and appearing on other bands and musical ventures. It was fortunate that the band had released the new album at all, it was rather overdue, and Phil had to be prodded to participate. A bitter unwelcome change was in the wind for the mighty band with the hardcore fan base, a change which would ultimately lead to disaster.

Revolution Is My Name

Revolution Is My Name

68' into the world born
And the Seventies, a breath after the war
Life was confusing because of my age
Should my eyes open for tomorrow’s gains?
I can't help the way I am
There's no trust and there's no end
What is my name?

It will never change
So here it stays
Forever is my name

From now on, can't look the other way
Keep in mind and listen to what I say
Take under wing all the ones who are lost
Build up around them an infinite wall
Don't you know just who I am?
Take the hand of wisdom's friend
What is my name?

It's time to change
It can't stay the same
Revolution is my name
It will never change
So here it stays
Forever is my name

What is my name?
Forever...

What is my name?
Revolution...

Cool Pantera

Tensions within the band had surfaced ever since it was revealed that Phil Anselmo had nearly died from an overdose of heroin after a homecoming show in Texas in 1996. It was a complete shock to the band that their frontman was using a dangerous drug. The rest of the band was all into their booze and Bud (and bud, of the leafy green vegetable variety ), but that was the extent of it. The band was not into harder drugs, having seen many badly burned casualties from it. Anselmo said that he got into it after doctors told him to take some time off to recover from back injuries. His extremely manic stage moves through out his back, and he took to the bottle to heal his back pain, which ended up affecting his performances with the band. Doctors told him that he needed a year off from the road, which was unacceptable to him. To cure his pain, he took to the needle. He was revived with a shot of adrenaline after his backstage overdose, during which he was clinically dead for five minutes. He said there was no beatific vision, no pearly gates, no tunnel of light, it was just simply experiencing "nothing". Though he apologized to his bandmates for the horrible scare he had put them through, they later found that he had not stopped using.

Another point of contention with him in the band was when one Canadian dj felt some of his onstage rants were racist at a show in Montreal. Anselmo later made a public apology, claiming he was drunk at the time, but it ended up hurting the band with the image of them being touted as "redneck racists" from Texas. One clip of the band performing "A New Level" live features Anselmo shouting White power!" at the beginning of the song, but the story goes that he was attacking the omniprescence of rap and hip-hop which were killing metal's chances at being heard by more listeners.

As far as the new album was concerned, the new album lived up to the title. It was not in the domain of Limp Bizkit and Korn to "re-invent" metal when it was only rap metal with guitars in a weird attempt to buttress rap with heavy riffs. NU-metal did not have the connection with traditional metal, which was based on a long line of music reaching back into the late 60's British electric blues scene. NU-metal, or "rap-metal" was simply a way to make rap appear palatable to white audiences by giving it detuned, distorted riffs. It had no connection to the blues tradition at all. Pantera did have it because of their connection with and inspiration by British bands such as Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, and early Metallica and Slayer. By claiming to be re-inventing the steel (i.e., metal), Pantera was thrusting itself into the thread of the metal tradition, a band which handily created a militant fan base, featured an amazing guitar shredder with a unique sound which brought much respect and admiration from many musicians. The title was a sign that metal, which had lie dormant in the past decade, was about to make a mighty resurgence in the new decade.

This song made references to the band's inspirations--in fact, Slayer's Kerry King made an appearance onstage at the Seattle show in 2001 and elsewhere, playing guitar live!

Goddamn Electric

There is a part of me that's always sixteen
I've found the secret of eternal youth
Some get high on life or money, but there's an
Escape, drop out of the race.
- To walk through the world by ones self, you can't be
Protected... your trust is in whiskey and weed and
Black Sabbath - It's Goddamn Electric

Don't waste your time, embrace it
And then you'll know yourself
The change in you is Goddamn Electric

The weight of the world has lifted and parted
My eyes roll blind to sights that distracted
Through tunnel-vision and dope-hair blinders
I'll cut a path and evoke my will
- To walk through the world by ones self, you can't
Be protected... your trust is in whiskey and weed
And Slayer, it's Goddamn Electric

Don't fake your life - inhale it
And then you'll know yourself
The change in you is Goddamn Electric
Don't waste your time, embrace it
Annd then you'll know yourself
The change that is Goddamn Electric will focus>
The Mind's Eye...

One hand on the bottle, the other a shaking
Fist, rejuvinated, isolated, no pressure
From the outside, my sight's Goddamn Electric
And these eyes have seen a world
Goddamn Electric system...

Cool Pantera

One could tell that Anselmo was not with the program at the show in Seattle.
Opening bands consisted of Nothingface, 90's "satanic" speed metal heroes Morbid Angel, and Sepultura spinoff band Soulfly, during which Anselmo joined onstage even before headliners Pantera were to go on. He wore a black shirt with a Satanic pentagram and a goat's head in the center, which seemed like an 80's anachronism in a day and age when mall-"metal" fans wore the baggy clown-pants hip-hop homies look. Outside before the show, some metal dudes were attempting to make blasphemous comments about God and religion and whatever else in order to sound heavier and more "offensive" than anyone else. It came across as corny. Young people entering a new decade were still trying to adopt 80's standards of rebellion, as if living in a cultural time warp. Pantera was certainly not about living in the past, but some of the "hip" mannerisms of metalheads seemed to have no effect for a time when kids had new way of offending parents and authority figures.

During the show, the momentum of the concert was slowed when the band took long stretches between songs for Phil Anselmo to toss cans of beer into the crowd while drummer Vinnie Paul did a drum roll. The whole scenario was amusing, but deflated the anticipation of the crowd who would have otherwise been worked up to hear their next favorite songs. Anselmo just acted bored. The band even began one of their biggest songs, "Cemetary Gates", with Phil just sitting on the stage, acting like he could care less about singing the song. In fact, he didn't--he simply stood up and said,
"Aww, I don't want to do that one." The song just ended before it had even begun.

Yesterday Don't Mean S

There's nothing special about it
It's either there when you're born or not
Gifted with talent are no big deal
Welcome to the death of a century...

Cause yesterday don't mean ****
What's over is over and nothing between
Yesterday don't mean ****
Because tomorrow's the day you have to face
There's no rewinding time
Yesterday don't mean ****
Yesterday don't mean ****

Reliving old reviews is a useless tool of confusion
Don't hold your breath for the turn-around
Come into the world of endless odds...

They'll tell you about guilt
And in time you'll face the darkness...
But darkness is a friend to you
Embrace and fly through the madness
Flying past God and wars and conflict
Oppressor in you [x2]
Plowing through minds and paranoia
Oppressor in you
The oppressor's in you

Yesterday don't mean jack ****...

To protect you and I'll keep to myself
It can only be that way - yeah!



Phil:

After performing a few encores, including Van Halen's "Somebody Get Me a Doctor", Anselmo instructed the audience to some lots of dope, drink lots of booze, take lots of drugs, eat the wrong foods, and perform various sex acts for the new year. The audience cheered him on.

Before leaving the stage, he also announced that it might be a while before the band would be back with a new album, but would the audience want to see a concert tour co-headlined with Slayer that summer? Again, the response was overwhelming.

We'll Grind That Axe For a Long Time

Wears 10 crowns, dragons heads
Southern are the sons, Lords unmatched
- Their eyes donít look right, should they be trusted now?
Trashed-mouth Gods, avoided kings
With the spirit of revolt, the ghost of youth

Every fing year it stays the same
Everybody changes to suit the day
Out of pride I'll isolate my fears
Never turned our backs on why we're here
We'll grind that axe for a long time

Follow close, train of fools
Just like them, just like you
- Their eyes don't seem right.
"Easily impressed" plague, dressed up fake
No respect

Every fing year remains the same
Everybody sucks-up to suit the day
Out of hate I'll isolate myself
Through the worst we still marched into hell
We'll grind that axe for a long time
The smell in the air is chicken s.

We'll grind that axe for a long time

Every ****ing song remains the same
To everyone who sucks-up for the fame
Out of strength you know we speak the truth
Every trend that dies is living proof
We'll grind that axe for a long time

I'll Cast a Shadow

The end will crush the light
And sends a message, It won't please
The naked eye
Without and end there is no light
To foretell, to blind you
The law of the claw reigns on and after still

When I die, I cast a shadow
And I'll rise, I cast a shadow

I'm leaving more eyes open
I close up both of mine
For the ones that chase my life
They're looking over shoulders
Let paranoia in
Spontaneously rule them

When I die, I cast a shadow
And I'll fly, I cast a shadow

Everybody get ****ing up!
I cast a shadow...
I... I cast a shadow
I cast a shadow...
I... I cast a shadow

When I die, I cast a shadow
And I'll rise, I cast a shadow
