I came across this link:
And I have to say I signed it.
I have nothing against Bob Rock really, but I agree with the writer (writers?) of the petition that old school Metallica is light years beyond their more recent efforts, and I guess we long time fans just want a return to glory.
Here’s a glimpse of what the petition is all about:
“We, the longtime loyal fans and friends of Metallica and their music would like to see a major change with the upcoming album. I know it will be a hard thing to do, but we feel it is time to sever your working relationship with Bob Rock….
“…We are excited to hear the next studio album with the addition of masterful bassist Robert Trujillo. We hope it breathes new songwriting life into the band. All we ask is you take our suggestion seriously for the sake of the band and your fans. Please end your working relationship with Bob Rock as producer and let’s enter into a new phase for Metallica.”
It’s a silly waste of time, but what the Hell…
