    "Thats the power of music thats a language on its own". What a brilliant quote, that really resonates with me.

    I have a lot of respect for James. I didn't need to see this to get it, this just reaffirmed it. Fucking legend of a musician. I am going to own July 16th, this will be the best day of my life.

    'People were telling us, y'know we learned English from your songs'.

    That must have been interesting for tourists to Russia in the coming years:

    'Excuse me, can you tell me where the train station is?'
    'Yes it is just down this road, then you exit light, enter night. You should be there'
    'That doesn't sound right...'
    'You know it's sad but true'.

    Wish time warner would have tried to "get in" on romania as well. The communist regime was brought down in 1989, and the first time anyone of international importance came around was in 92. and it was freaking Michael Jackson. Would have traded him for Metallica, for sure.

    I'm a 90's kid and it's funny because an English teaching in Eastern Europe was really poor back then, so music was the only chance for us to learn English.

    Pffft, nothing too special. One of my buddy's relatives played in front of 666 million kikes back in the 40's with his band, The National Socialist German Workers' Party. He said the temperature was just reich for touring the various camps. My favorite tune of theirs is still Greater Israel Project, followed by Holocaust Guilt Trip. What great songs and what disciplined musicians they were. NSDAP beats Metallica.

    this would never happen today in russia , here autoritarism took over once again. back then people had enough of commie shit, almost a century of all kinds of slavery , no access to free world, no information about anything outside of ussr, it was so good to finally unite with the rest of the nations, thats why there were so many people on that concert. It was just the right time for big us bands to come.
