1985-1990 Metallica Report
Metallica has done very many things in 1985-1990 they went on tours with major bands, put out a couple of cd’s, got their first tour not playing as an opening band for anybody else.

The show that day was cancelled and during the rest of the tour James was singing with his arm up in a sling while John Marshall stood in on guitar. At that time John Marshall was Kirk Hammet’s guitar roadie as well as a member of another band the Metal Church.” (http://www.encycmet.com/biography/diary2.shtml) “September 27th, 1986 it was near dawn and the two Metallica buses were leaving to go on to making their way along a god-forsaken road that lies somewhere between the Scandinavian cities of Stockholm and Copenhagen....
