No, but it sure makes one appreciate how good ones life is when complaining about others wishes to make music for them self and not "you" is one`s (seemingly) biggest problem, compared to what others have been through  :gah: No, but seriously; I respect metallica for doing what they wanna do and not trying to stick to the same formula over and over again and try to make Master of puppets 5.
Like, whatever.

I watched this video clip the other day, and It was great to see KING back on stage, I honestly beieve that KING and Metallica need to write and record a song together.

published a "Metallica Spotlight" piece featuring tributes from 17 renowned metal musicians (including a section titled "How I Almost Died," which is Oderus Urungus from GWAR recounting a funny METALLICA-related memory).

King Diamond

"One of the great memories of Metallica is when we met while I was with Mercyful Fate in '84. We were playing in San Francisco and they came to the show. I heard they had a Danish drummer and that I might know his dad, the famous Danish tennis player, Torben Ulrich. Metallica came in, said hi, and later, came out on stage and headbanged during one of our encores. Later, they were recording Ride the Lightning at Sweet Silence Studios in Copenhagen. We had a rehearsal room in the same building and Metallica happened to need a rehearsal room. So we offered them our room while we were not rehearsing. I remember hearing some riffs and saying, "Wow," it was some of the heaviest stuff I had ever heard at the time. "Creeping Death" is still one of my favorites. This year, I had the honor of performing onstage with Metallica at Ozzfest. Singing the entire Mercyful Fate medley was an incredible experience. We had only practiced two hours the night before, and they had not played the song since '99. It just shows how pro they are and that there is a reason they are the biggest metal band in the world!"     }
The musicians paying "tribute" to METALLICA are as follows:

Brian Tatler (DIAMOND HEAD)
King Diamond (MERCYFUL FATE)
Charlie Benante (ANTHRAX)
Alex Skolnick (TESTAMENT)
Mille Petrozza (KREATOR)
Mitts (MADBALL)
Matt Baumbach (VISION OF DISORDER)
Thomas Youngblood (KAMELOT)
Jonas Ekdahl (EVERGREY)
Michale Graves (MISFITS)
Rob Arnold (CHIMAIRA)
Brock Lindow (36 CRAZYFISTS)
Trevor Strnad (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER)
Jonny Davy (JOB FOR A COWBOY)
Ivan Moody (FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH)
Darrell Roberts (FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH)
Harley Flanagan (CRO-MAGS)
Michel "Away" Langevin (VOIVOD)
Oderus Urungus (GWAR)

That would be an amazing song.
I wonder if King and the boys from Metallica have ever tossed that idea around?

When Lars introduced King I almost freaked. Being up front close to King with Metallica playing was an experience never to be forgotten. King Diamond. It doesn't get any better. Hope to see you on tour sometime soon. Best wishes. :king:

Awesome show, King. It's great to see you getting back on stage. Don't forget to stop in Omaha when you are able to go on tour. I'll be looking forward to seeing you again. :king:
