METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich has posted the following message earlier today via the group's official web site at www.metallica.com:
"Monday morning, Ten and change
"My arm feels worse today than it did yesterday - what's with that?!? It's now 36 hours post-bash and I just wanted to give a big 'fuck yeah' to everybody who came to the shindig, everybody who partook on the web and everybody who was plain just there in spirits. It was so fuckin' cool to be amongst it again, to connect with you motherfuckers again, to share some music, some laughs, some love, some insults and a few beverages.
"A big 'fuck yeah' also to all of you who were brave enough to come up and throw down some bass jams and kudos to Andrew and Elena who led us into 'Creep' & 'Seek' and borderline had to show US what the fuck to do! Playing for you AGAIN was so fuckin' special - especially in that kind of intimate set up. I'll have to admit I was a bit intimidated, and I'll have to remember to fuckin' warm up next time! Cuz getting carried away BASHING like that is a bit rough on the arm without the mandatory pre-gig stretching, if ya know what I mean...
"I'm gonna head back down to the studio now and continue working on the record. Once again, thanks to everybody for sharing a great day with us and whoever hasn't left SF yet - safe travels.
C-ya in a bit, Lars"
