Metallica Might Be Booted From Festival For Bear Hunting
Daily Caller ^ | 06/07/2014 | Tristyn Bloom

Posted on 06/07/2014 7:40:22 PM PDT by Rusty0604

Animal rights activists want Metallica booted from the Glastonbury music festival because frontman James Hetfield is an enthusiastic hunter, the Telegraph reports.

A Facebook page calling for their removal, launched shortly after the History Channel announced that Hetfield will narrate its new series about bear hunting, already has over 27 thousand likes.

The page says that Hetfield’s “support of big game hunting…is incompatible with the spirit of Glastonbury and brings its good name into disrepute.”

Hetfield, who once admitted that he missed his son’s birthday while hunting bears in Russia, is a member of the NRA and has described himself as “pretty conservative on a lot of things.” “I love nature,” he said in a 1993 interview with Rolling Stone. “I love the wilderness, and there is not much more of it left. It makes me hate people. Animals, they don’t lie to each other. There is an innocence within them. And they’re getting...

I've been a big Metallica fan for a long tome. Tickets were sold out within seconds when they played with the SF Symphony (years ago), so I volunteered to usher and got to see the show for free!

Metallica and Megadeth. Dave Mustaine is an unabashed conservative as well.

Several of the older rock and roll artists are conservative. Some of them may have sold songs that weren’t exactly conservative, but I guess they needed to make a few bucks too!

I got to see them for free in ‘94 at Otay Mesa in San Diego. My best friend there was a San Diego sheriff’s deputy, and had to work that day. His Wife had tickets, and they asked me to go with her to make sure she was safe.

I miss those folks. Good people.

“And Justice For ALL. “ Had no idea that when this album was released that all that lack of justice would be directed at conservative America. Makes all that head bangin’ I do a lot more meaningful.

Never heard a Metallica song in my life. Suddenly hunting is illegal? Hunting phobia? When will this crap stop? Never.

Dave Mustaine refuses to tour with openly satanic or anti Christian bands. He even managed to get a band called “Cannibal Christ” kicked off a tour because he told the promoters that it was him or them.

He was in Israel a few months back just taking a vacation. He said that there was no better way of supporting our friend than economically.

I love Metallica as well but I refuse to listen to them regularly as long as they got the biggest douchebag drummer in the world Lars Ulrich in their band. Someone show me one example of that dickweed talking to another human being without forcing that person to look up his nostrils. He is the definition of an asshat.

I’m a hard rock kind of guy (if I were king, I’d put Ronnie James Dio in all his gnome-like glory on the $20 bill). Never been a big Metallica fan, though - that speed/thrash stuff just never did it for me. But Hetfield sounds like a guy I could sit down and have a beer with. If those tree-hunching Glastonwussy types had a brain or a place to put one, they’d soon realize that hunters and anglers are the best, most efficient, most environmentally-respectful stewards of the wilderness of anyone else in humanity. We take the pulse, the vital signs, of nature every time we venture out into it, and we’re well-aware of it’s savage demeanor. I have eternally maintained that there’s a very stark contrast between ‘environmentalists’ and ‘conservationists’. And I’m eternally pissed that the lines and definitions have been co-oped and warped into a propaganda tool.

James Hetfield used to be one of the coolest guys in rock, then he did that awful movie and came off like a weirdo touchy-feely baby, in my opinion. “Yes, no guitar solos, that’s what we’ll do.” “Here’s our band therapist to tell us how to feeeeeel...”

The bear thing in this case is responsible wildlife management, as I understand it.

I got the chance to see Dio, Motorhread and Iron Maiden (my personal favorite). Brought my daughter when she was in like 6th or 7th grade.

It left an impression on her ;) And Dio was freaking amazing live.

Here’s something people don’t complain about too much:

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg kills for his own meat. Like?

As CNN reports, it’s an odd dietary direction for the 27-year-old Internet billionaire. But he says that since he has taken to killing goats, pigs and chickens himself, “I’m eating a lot healthier foods. And I’ve learned a lot about sustainable farming and raising of animals. It’s easy to take the food we eat for granted when we can eat good things every day.”

Man, I envy you and your daughter. Bruce Dickinson has got a great voice and a range like an air raid siren, but Dio was just more a pure singer, pitch-perfect, IMO. (This comes from a man was not only a choirboy, but who’s father was an opera tenor who sang professionally at The Met.) And Lemmy is.....Lemmy. LMAO!

Motorhead opened, Dio was act 2 and Maiden headlined. Motorhead was what you’d expect. Dio (W/Goldy on guitar) just floored everyone. The man can do no wrong) and then Maiden.

I think the sun rises and sets on Dickenson vocally, but to see those two back to back and 100% on fire all night was a truly amazing thing to see and hear.

The kid gets lots of hate to this day from dudes that are jealous ;)
