Damage IncorporatedMetallica Biography Published 2006.
'Metallica opened its early live sets (and 'Kill em all' album) with 'Hit the Lights', a song that begins with a noisy two - chord flourish meant to evoke the opening of a concert. However, in a further illustration of NWOBHMs important role in Metallica's musical direction, the opening chords- drum fills and all seem to have been lifted directly from Weapon's 'Set the Stage alight', the 1980 release from the influential fledgling NWOBHM band.
Weapon-UK drummer Darren Lee is now officially endorsed by Los Cabos Drumsticks! Darren commented "I've been using their Red Hickory sticks for the past couple of years and they are by far the most durable and well balanced sticks I've ever used, so I'm thrilled to now be part of the family! Fortunately I've been able to stock up before the run of European dates with Weapon-UK." Visit the Los Cabos website for more information.
