If you are wondering who the person is behind this website then now you
know. This section really is to show that this is just a fan site
done by one person who just loves to waste time on anything Metallica! I
have been a Metallica fan since 1993. I listen to Metallica
Virtually every day. I have seen Metallica live forty three times
in seven countries and was lucky enough to have have met the whole band at
a meet and greet in Germany at the Rock Am Ring festival in 2003. I met
Metallica at the meet and greet at Rock Am Ring festival in Germany
8/June/2003. I got James to draw a "new style" scary guy he also signed
below the scary guy. Lars and Rob put their signatures on my arm also and
two days later I got it tattooed in!
Why did I design this
website? I had a
look at the sites that were around and there were a few good ones and a
lot of bad ones, so I thought about everything I would want from a
Metallica website and that's how it started. I put the structure
together about a year before I even started adding any content to it.
Then one day in about October 2002 I started adding the content (the hard
part) and have worked on it in my spare time since then. In reality
this website is not all that original but how original can you make it?
Everything has been done before, but my aim is to provide an easy to
navigate website that people can get all the information they want from.
In reality it just feeds my hunger for all things Metallica and when I am
doing something Metallica related I'm happy.
A few years on and the
website seems to be extremely popular which is fantastic. Its really good
to get feedback on what you spend your life creating. I have met a lot of
good friends through the creation this website and it has taken me on a
few good journeys! I now run a local chapter of the Metallica fan club
"Metworld" which you can find the links for on the left hand navigation
bar. Its been a great 4 years and I want to thank everyone that has
submitted info/photos for any of the fan sections and all the people that
email with praise for the site. Without people to view the site it would
not exist so thanks again. Hopefully in another 4 years we will still be
Hi I'm Ed or Starski
depending on the weather and the company. I am metworlds answer to
Napolian Dynamite! I'm the idea's man... damage
jackals, Ninja stars and I write the
Metallica for me is like a set of feelings and emotions put on CD, I can
tap into them any time and they are powerful emotions like the birth of a
kitten or the death of a cat.. I'm sure you can empathise.
The website and chapter is a lot of work yes, but it is great fun and to
be honest the drive is to see as much of an interactive community feel
surrounding Metallica events, topics, views as possible. The site used to
be all about a great source of Metfacts, and images. Now we strive to
maintain this but also be fun, interactive and different.
I got into Metallica in 94 after listening to Fight Fire with Fire. The
intro just did it for me. That was the change from musically lost to
found. I've seen the band 39 times now and the experience doesn't seem to
falter. It's not only a great buzz to see the band but to meet up with the Metworld crew and dive straight into that vibe... See you on tour.
