In fact, I knew nothing about Metallica when my former elementary schoolmate Brian provided me with the three aforementioned albums. It almost boggles my mind how much free time that I had when I was a youngster. I would play an album over and over while reading the latest magazines such Al Martino - Painted, Tainted Rose Circus and Columbia - The Ventures - NASA 25th Anniversary And Space Observance Week Commemorative Album Paraderand while Fade To Black - Metallica - Ride The Lightning up the various photos to paste on my bedroom walls.
Eventually, I ran out of room on my bedroom walls so I started evaluating if Fade To Black - Metallica - Ride The Lightning potential incumbent photos were better than the ones currently pinned to my bedroom walls. Whatever the case, I still get goose bumps hearing it.

His previous band, Flotsam and Jetsamperformed a song called "Fade to Black" on their album Doomsday for the Deceiver before he left to join Metallica. Hetfield's guitar protected him from the full force of the blast; however, the fire engulfed most of his left side, burning his hand, both arms, eyebrows, face and hair.
He suffered second and third-degree burns, but was back on stage 17 days later, although his guitar duties were delegated to former guitar tech and Metal Church guitarist John Marshall for four weeks while he made a full recovery.
