I spotted the below photo on the excellent blog of J.Yuenger (ex-White Zombie guitarist, once again) and had to laugh. Yes, of course, I heartily endorse the juvenile nyucks prompted by James Hetfield's potty-mouthed t-shirt, but oddly enough the thing that really caught my eye was Lars (him to the left in the picture). Lars is depicted wearing the t-shirt from It's Only Rock n' Roll, the late, great rekkid store/memorabilia emporium on West 8th Street (I spoke about it at some length on this post). I'd always meant to procure one of those shirts (designed circa 1986 by trippy poster artist Rick Griffin) when the shop was still a going concern, but of course never got around it. If you're interested, though, you can still get one here (although sadly not in color, like Lars').
Twenty-five years later, It's Only Rock n' Roll is long, long gone, West 8th Street is struggling to re-define itself, Metallica are now pretty boring and Lars Ulrich, evidently, is currently pursuing a career in acting.
Here they are from around the same era as the photograph above (i.e. when they still mattered).
