Up next is a post from our new section called Frozen in Time. We are proud to bring you some ultra-rare 80’s Metal pic’s from rock photographer Bill Hale (ex- Metal Rendezvous International). Bill is best known for his kick-ass Metallica photo book called The Club Dayz [ECW Press], which we’ve featured extensively here at Demolish HQ.
If you haven’t got your paws on this one and you consider yourself a Metallica fan, then by all means redeem yourself asap and give it a peep. It shows Metallica in their early Bay Area club dayz, and I mean early!
I should also take this time to mention that Bill will have a new photog book on Megadeth out soon entitled: Another Time, A Different Place [MTV Books]”. Best of luck to Bill on the new book and hats off for taking the time to catalog some of the earliest American Metal history. If if wasn’t for folks such as Bill – you would have nothing but a drunken, hazy memory of these bands hangin’ around in those cobwebs.
