So I recieved my 300th issue of Guitar World yesterday, and as I was reading through it I couldnt help but notice how many damn covers Metallica is on. So when I finished looking through it, I counted all the times any Metallica member has been on the cover. 19 FREAKING TIMES!
Just because they're on lots of covers doesn't mean that the guitar mag is overrating them. They may have done a 'St. Anger Special' Issue. That's not exactly praise.
