METALLICA Confirm RAMONES Tribute Participation

According to Inter Sandman, METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist Kirk Hammett stopped by The METALLICA Club chat room yesterday. Amongst the things mentioned by the pair were the following:

* It was confirmed the band is jamming on some RAMONES material for inclusion on the upcoming RAMONES tribute CD (to which METALLICA are said to be contributing a version of "We're a Happy Family")
* Producer Bob Rock is still filling in bass, but does not wish to join the band — due mostly to touring commitments.
* Lars talked to former bassist Jason Newsted from the road last week and everything was good.

The band stopped by Club HQ after a day in the studio. This followed a scheduled MetClub chat about merchandise/memberships, but Lars and Kirk were not due to appear and just hopped on spontaneously.
