Helping Hands…Live & Acoustic At The Masonic

We all have dreams about winning the lottery. Some people would pay off debts, travel the world, go back to school, or quit their job and live on a beach in Fiji while they learned to surf.

Me? I would throw myself (and a few close friends) an awesome concert.

Don’t know where I came up with the idea or really had an inkling of how much something like this would cost. Maybe if I really hit the jackpot I could do a 3 day festival or join some band on the road for an entire tour. Some of the dream concerts I had come up with was getting Faith No More back together or letting my Dad choose the set list for The Eagles. But the one concert that always topped my list was Metallica…Unplugged.

In the late 90s, a lot of bands were doing Unplugged albums. Nirvana, Alice In Chains, & Korn to name a few. I always wondered why Metallica never did one. Sure, they had the S&M album they did with the San Francisco Symphony, but nothing completely acoustic.

So I was left to wonder what Metallica would sound like…until I didn’t have to. Raising money for their All Within My Hands Foundation, Metallica released Helping Hands…Live & Acoustic At The Masonic. Twelve tracks that made my lottery winning dreams almost come true. It was live, it was acoustic, and it had songs that I always wanted to hear unplugged!
