Back in my 80's drumming days it was all about image back then, I too had cowboy boots and wore them whilst playing along with numerous studded belts and tassles etc.... Horrifies me to think that ther emight be some photos out there of me playing in all that gettup. Nowadays, t-shirt, shorts and a pair of trainers is all I wear, comfort!!! :lol:

Did everyone miss the first pic?

Metallica wasn't/isn't/hopefully never will be a "hair band". I mean, if you're going to throw Charlie Benante and Dave Lombardo in there as well just to be funny.
