Metallica performed its classic song “Nothing Else Matters” with pop star Miley Cyrus on SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show” yesterday morning (Thursday, September 9). You can watch video of the performance below. Miley’s appearance was in celebration of release of the remastered deluxe box set of Metallica’s self-titled fifth album and also features Elton John, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, frequent collaborator Andrew Watt and Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo. Appearing via video link, Elton told Howard his decision to play piano on the star-studded cover was an absolute “no-brainer.” “This is one of the best songs ever written, to me. It’s a song that never gets old. Playing on this track I just couldn’t wait because the chord structure, the melodies, the time changes — it’s got drama written all over it,” he said.

More sad news as we move into the second month of the year. Legendary post-Punk and Brit Rock guitarist and producer Andy Gil has died after a short respiratory illness in London. He was just 64 years old. As a founding member of Gang of Four, Andy left an indelible mark on music with his style and songcraft. Gang of Four’s first few albums are seminal works in post-Punk and New Wave music and they continued to inspire and affect bands long after they were inactive in the scene. A ground-breaking composer and producer, he worked with artists including the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Stranglers, the Futureheads, Michael Hutchence, Bono, Therapy? and the Young Knives. The band had reunited (with Gill as the only original member) in recent years to much acclaim. His band has released a tribute via their publicist. Continue reading
