Band Photo: Slipknot (?)
A live video of METALLICA members James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo performing the track "Battery" with SLAYER drummer Dave Lombardo at the Download festival in England on June 6, 2004 has been posted online at YouTube.com. More footage — including interview clips with some of the other bands performing at the Download 2004 festival (such as DAMAGEPLAN, HATEBREED and ILL NINO) — can be found here.
METALLICA's regular drummer, Lars Ulrich, was taken to hospital with an undisclosed illness just hours before METALLICA were due to headline the festival. Rather than pull the show and risk a revolt from fans, METALLICA called upon SLAYER and SLIPKNOT drummers, Lombardo and Joey Jordison (respectively), alongside Ulrich's long-standing drum tech Flemming Larsen, to rescue the gig. Jordison played in his SLIPKNOT mask. You can watch a clip of Joey Jordison performing "Enter Sandman" with METALLICA at this location. Video of Jordison's rendition of "For Whom the Bell Tolls" with METALLICA can be viewed here.
