On a more personal note, I bought my dad the "Fade to Bluegrass" Metallica tribute (he's from West Virginia and remembers lots of Bluegrass music more than he actually likes it) and I even thought it was pretty damn good (for Bluegrass). I'd have to say I like it better than Load anyway. These guys did an Ozzy tribute as well, which I've yet to check out. Somehow, I don't picture Ozzy translating to other musical styles as well as old Metallica.

heh. Clever concept, like the string quartet tributes.....

Being from Kentucky (the bluegrass-Derby having-gun loving state) I imagine that an Ac/dc bluegrass record would move more units here than anywhere else....While my dad loves Ac/dc he cringes when he hears blue grass or country.....he's into his classic rock, 80's thrash and grunge....he's a strange one......and i would imagine "fade to bluegrass" is infinitely superior to "Load", how could it not be?
