Don’t know what to write, don’t know what to say neither what I’m feeling. Metallica in Paris, Metallica is IN Paris right know and yesterday I had the chance to be invited to the live and for sure my camera was around my neck.
I was a fan when I was a teenager, I used to play drums in Algeria and sometimes to sing in my band. It was because of them that with my friends we decided to make a band. Yesterday I had the chance to see them in real. Can you imagine having a favorite band, that you never expected to see in your life. That they are coming to the town where you’re living in and on top you do the thing that you like the most ! Taking pictures !
I remember in 1995, I was going to cyber café just for one thing, download pictures of Metallica it was costing us (me and my friend) around 2 € which is more than a day of work and by that time we were not working and on top in Algeria ! So i was downloading pictures, putting them in floppy disk … But I didn’t have a computer ! so I was going to print them and it was costing so much. All my and all our money was going there. And today you know more than twenty years later ! I have pictures of them and I shot those f**** pictures 🙂
You have to know that there was only one store by that time selling t-shirts of Metallica and it was so expensive ! We were also looking for some albums from Metallica, in Algeria you have to know that all albums before The black album (1991) weren’t available. Even the album load was not possible to find until 1999 because more people were listening to Metallica. So with my friends we discovered old albums of Metallica with the help of those who had family in Europe or outside of Africa. That frustration made us being patient so patient that almost 20 years later …. You know what this post is about.
I’ve said it there’s nothing more to say ! Metallica in Paris that’s it !
