Metallica: Kirk Hammett took inspiration from Stephen King novel for second album

Metallica: Kirk Hammett took inspiration from Stephen King novel for second album

Both Metallica and legendary novelist Stephen King have the same sort of themes as they both write about some of the deeper topics in life. This connection was not lost on Hammett, who previously spoke out about using King as inspiration for one of their biggest-selling albums to date.  

Hammett told the story on one of his blog posts where he revealed he found the inspiration for the band’s second album, Ride The Lightning.

He wrote: “One huge thing about my personal connection with Stephen King occurred when I was reading a chapter in The Stand.

“The chapter had a guy in prison who was waiting to Ride The Lightning, and I just thought: ‘Oh my God, what a cool collection of adjectives and nouns that is!’”

The Stand was King’s fifth novel and focussed on a worldwide pandemic wreaking havoc through the lands.

During the novel, as noted by Hammett, one of the characters – Lloyd Henreid – is in prison and about to be executed by electric chair.

This turn of phrase was enough to inspire Hammett into writing the incredible song Ride The Lightning. The guitarist went on to name the entire album after the the song.

Hammett went on: “I told [the band’s singer] James [Hetfield], he thought the same, and the rest is Metallica history!

“Pick up a copy of The Stand if you’re obsessive enough and find the chapter about a guy on death row where King actually writes the words.”

King has remained a fan of Metallica for years and most recently touched upon still listening to them.

The author revealed he fuels his creative process by listening to heavy metal.

Speaking to The Atlantic, King said: “I listen to music when I rewrite now. I don’t listen to music when I compose anymore. I can’t. I’ve lost the ability to multitask that way!

“[I listen to] Metallica, Anthrax. I still listen to those guys … There’s a band called the Living Things that I like a lot. Very loud group.”

King did, however, go on to add: “I never cared for Ozzy very much.”

He also confessed his love for the band back in 2016 on Twitter.

The writer told his 6.4 million followers: “I believe I’ll have a Heavy Metal Weekend, starting with Slayer, Sabbath, and Motorhead.”

He added: “Saving Metallica & [Judas] Priests for Sunday.”

Stephen Colbert says he's going back before live audiences

Stephen Colbert says he's going back before live audiences

CBS says Stephen Colbert’s late-night show will return on June 14 to episodes with a full studio audience.

NEW YORK — In one more step toward a reopened entertainment world, CBS said Monday that Stephen Colbert’s late-night show will return on June 14 to episodes with a full studio audience.
Audience members will have to provide proof that they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 before attending shows at New York’s Ed Sullivan Theater. Face masks will be optional.
Since the COVID shutdown in March 2020, Colbert has produced 205 episodes without a live audience, taping his first monologue from the bathtub of his South Carolina home. In August, he moved to a small studio at the Sullivan Theater offices, usually only with the show’s executive producer, stage manager and occasionally Colbert’s wife watching.
Watching NBA playoff games and “Saturday Night Live” before audiences this past weekend was a reminder that those in attendance aren’t just watching, they are participants in events that make a big difference for performers, said Bill Carter, executive producer of CNN’s current documentary series, “The Story of Late Night.”
Telling jokes into a void has been especially hard for late-night performers, who depend upon the rhythm of the audience’s response to their material, he said.
“Colbert bringing back a real live audience is a moment to be celebrated — not just for him and the other hosts who can now resume regular programming, but to the audience at home who can share a bit in the enthusiasm of those on the scene,” Carter said.
The return of entertainment audiences “is something the country needs deeply,” he said. “It’s a release that has been pent up in the nation’s long-abused psyche for song long. Of course it’s going to feel liberating.”
Despite Colbert’s announcement on Monday, he may not be the first late-night host back before a full house.
Jimmy Fallon has taped NBC’s “Tonight” show before a partial studio audience of about 40 percent capacity at Rockefeller Center since March 22. NBC said Monday that Fallon plans to have a full audience, fully vaccinated, in early June.
ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel has been doing shows back in his regular studio, and at least some people are watching him, but it isn’t clear how many and who they are.
Comedy Central’s Trevor Noah has been recording socially distant versions of “The Daily Show” from his home without an audience. Currently on hiatus, the show plans to keep operating from Noah’s home when it returns on June 7, a spokeswoman said.
Fox News Channel’s Greg Gutfeld started a late-night comedy show during the epidemic, with a small audience of about 15 people.
Colbert is the top-rated late-night performer, and his announcement Monday sends a clear message.
“I look forward to once again doing show for an audience I can smell and touch,” Colbert said.

Stephen Bear has been charged in connection with revenge porn allegations.

It follows an investigation into the disclosure of intimate photographs without consent.

The 31-year-old reality star has now been charged with voyeurism – disclosing private, sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress, and harassment without violence.

Bear is due to appear at court on a date yet to be set, The Mirror reports.

The former Celebrity Big Brother winner was stopped by police when he landed in the UK following a trip to Dubai in January 21 – on the same day he turned 31.

Bear was arrested at Heathrow Airport and taken into custody before being released on bail.

He dismissed the allegations at the time as ‘so silly.’

Bear has since quit Instagram and launched a YouTube channel giving followers financial advice about cryptocurrencies.

Since his arrest, Bear caused further controversy by sharing a bizarre prank that suggested he was about to become a father to twins.

He posted a scan of two babies with the message: “Wasn’t expecting 2. Think it’s time I should I grow up.”

Bear later admitted he was just joking and is not going to become a dad this year.

Stephen Hawking's final theory published after death suggests universe is a hologram

Stephen Hawking's final theory published after death suggests universe is a hologram
Prior to his death on March 14, 2018, the English theoretical physicist created a theory that changed the way we think about the universe. Working with Belgian professor, Thomas Hertog, from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven), Hawking theorised that our three-dimensional reality is an illusion.
Put simply, Professors Hawking and Hertog speculated that all information in the universe is stored on a flat 2D surface and our so-called “solid” world around us is then projected from that information.

Back in 2018, Professor Hertog said: “It’s a very precise mathematical notion of holography that has come out of string theory in the last few years, which is not fully understood but is mind-boggling and changes the scene completely.

“The key point is that we’re not projecting out a spatial dimension. We are projecting out the dimension of time from ‘before’ the Big Bang.”

Published a month after his death in the Journal of High Energy Physics, the theory is compatible with eternal inflation and Einstein’s theory of General Relativity.

Defining what makes a hologram, Professor Hertog explained that it can be viewed as a kind of dimensional change.

Professor Hertog added: “It’s a theory that envisages a beginning to the universe where time is not present but our notion of time crystallises.

“And it’s saying that time is fundamentally coming out of some other state for which we have no words.

“Some very abstract timeless state – that’s the best we can do.”

His final published theory is not the first to imagine the universe as a form of pseudo-existence as theories have arisen over the last few decades indicating that humanity is living in a ‘Matrix-like’ simulation.

Ronnie O'Sullivan sets Stephen Hendry World Championship target – 'Another five years'

Ronnie O'Sullivan sets Stephen Hendry World Championship target - 'Another five years'

Ronnie O’Sullivan reckons he has five years left in him to match Stephen Hendry’s tally of seven World Snooker Championship victories, after his bid to draw level with the great Scot ended on Friday night.

The 45-year-old lost 13-12 to Anthony McGill in the second round in Sheffield as his defence of his Crucible crown ended early.

The Rocket’s exit ended a miserable season in which O’Sullivan lost five straight ranking finals at the Northern Ireland Open, Scottish Open, Welsh Open, Players Championship and Tour Championship.

O’Sullivan failed to win a tournament in a season for the first time since 1995-96 after his first ever career defeat to McGill.

The six-time world champion was not the favourite, with world No 1 Judd Trump instead enjoying that status, but was still expected to go deep into this year’s World Championship.

But as he’s left to reel from his loss, which came despite him coming back from 10-5 down to lead 11-10 and then 12-11, O’Sullivan insists he has five years to match Hendry.

The 52-year-old Scot returned to professional snooker this year and is hoping to be among the 32 to play in the World Championship proper next season after losing to Xu Is in the second round of qualifying earlier in April.

Hendry is the only player of all time with more Crucible triumphs than O’Sullivan and the Essex potter has set a five-year timeline to catch up with The Golden Boy.

“I have probably got another five years to equal Stephen,” said O’Sullivan after losing to McGill.

“The way I look after myself, the way I play, I look around and there are some decent players, some very good players.”

O’Sullivan says he’s not putting too much pressure on himself to win a seventh World Championship though.

He added: “I suppose I could get it right maybe one more time. It’s probably the only record I haven’t got so I won’t be too hard on myself.

“It’s impossible,” Bingtao declared after his first round win over Martin Gould. “It’s very difficult and I have little chance.

“I’m working hard every day from this match but it’s impossible – 17 days [at the Crucible] is a long time.

“Any Chinese player can win the title – not just me or Ding [Junhui]. But [Ding] has the best chance.

“Winning the Masters has given me very big confidence. It changed my life but every day is practice, practice for the World Championship.”

Bingtao faces Shaun Murphy in the second round of World Championship and goes into Sunday afternoon trailing the Englishman 6-2.

Ronnie O'Sullivan makes classy admission after Stephen Hendry World Championship bid dies

Ronnie O’Sullivan admitted that Anthony McGill was the deserving winner and said that the snooker gods “have done the right thing” after he saw his bid to match Stephen Hendry’s record of seven Crucible wins made to wait at least another 12 months on Friday night.

The Rocket was dumped out of the World Snooker Championship after just two matches as the defending champion suffered a 13-12 loss, meaning he remains one triumph behind Hendry.

Having led 4-1, O’Sullivan then found himself 10-5 down after the afternoon as McGill found his rhythm and the world No 2 entered the evening session trailing by four frames.

But he rattled off six straight frames to take the lead and put the pressure on McGill, who responded at 12-11 with a stunning break of 136 – his third century of the match – to force a decider.

And after O’Sullivan missed a red in the final frame following a break of 42, the world No 16 made him pay with an 85 that sees him into the third round to face either Stuart Bingham or Jamie Jones.

McGill devastatingly lost 17-16 to Kyren Wilson in the semi-finals of this season-ending tournament last year and is bidding to better that performance after his first ever career victory over 45-year-old O’Sullivan.

But there was no soreness from the six-time world champion post-match as he gave Scotland’s McGill credit for an excellent victory in Sheffield.

O’Sullivan, who has lost all of his five ranking finals since winning the World Championship last year, told BBC Sport: “That match he lost in the semi-finals last year, he didn’t lose it because he bottled it, he was just unlucky. He deserved his victory.

“I think any snooker player watching that last year can’t begrudge Anthony McGill a world title after that.

“It’s hard to lift yourself up after something like that but I thought he handled himself fantastically well last year. Anybody else I’d probably have really been a bit sore but I think the snooker gods have done the right thing.

“I’ll lick my wounds and come back again. It’s just one of them things.”

Speaking about his warm exchange of words with McGill after his defeat was confirmed, O’Sullivan added: “You have to [be respectful]. What can you do? It’s over. The reality is I’m out of the tournament and he’s still in.

“You’ve got to wish the man the best of luck. It’d be nice to see him go on and have a good run.

McGill said of his victory: “I played so well this morning and Ronnie just played like Ronnie tonight, he played so good. I just didn’t quite step up or reply to him. He was sort of running away with it.

“I managed to flick a frame somehow to go 11 each and that stopped the rot and I’ve finished the last two frames. I missed an easy red in the second or third frame of the session tonight, I should pot it with my eyes closed and I missed it.

“After that I just couldn’t get an easy chance, Ronnie’s safety was fantastic. His safety was so good. Ronnie gave me two easy starters for the final two breaks and I held myself together well. I’m pleased about that.

“I haven’t beat him before but to be honest I can’t even remember the last time I played him. They were all early in my career. I feel like I’m a better player than when I was the times I played him before.

“I felt as though I had half a chance in the match at the start. Almost threw it away but I’m delighted to get it over the line.”

‘I genuinely was so hurt’: UFC presenter Olivi speaks out after being ‘snubbed’ by ESPN pundit Stephen A. Smith

‘I genuinely was so hurt’: UFC presenter Olivi speaks out after being ‘snubbed’ by ESPN pundit Stephen A. Smith

UFC reporter Megan Olivi has revealed her hurt at being overlooked by fellow broadcaster Stephen A. Smith earlier this year.

After UFC 260 in late March, the ESPN mouthpiece sent out a tweet in tribute to the talents of the MMA championship’s punditry team, but notably missed Olivi out. 

“Ummm hey there – you’re forgetting someone,” she butted in, with a reply that received close to 4,000 likes. 

Yet again Smith failed to acknowledge her.

At a Q&A session after the UFC 261 weigh-ins on Friday, Olivi was broached on topic by reporters and admitted: “That was actually tough for me”.

“I don’t love social media in general, but then to play such a big role in terms of pre and post-fight interviews, like, I’m the one onsite doing them…”

“Then to do all the hits on the broadcast and be a part of this team and literally the only women on the pay-per-view team – there’s no other desk host, there’s no one on the pre- or post-show. It’s literally just me.

“And I’ve worked to be here. I wasn’t handed this. It’s been a very long journey, as people who have seen me 10 years ago I’m sure can attest to. I’ve done everything the right way to get here, and to not get the acknowledgement as my male colleagues got, I genuinely was so hurt,” she confessed, even though it was “nice” to see colleagues and fans defend her honor.

But despite outlining that the treatment is something “the women in this room have dealt”, the American doesn’t believe it is something Smith, who has often fallen foul of the women in the MMA community, did intentionally.

“I don’t think he did it on purpose. I don’t think there was any intent,” Olivi stressed, before then seeming to doubt Smith’s knowledge of the sport.

“I don’t think he was trying to be rude by any means. I just think it didn’t really matter to him. I don’t know how much he actually watched. I know he’s supposed to be an MMA insider and he does his best, but he has a lot on his plate, as well.”

“I also wonder if he was helped with the tweet, if maybe it was just, ‘OK, here are the people on the broadcast’,” Olivi pondered.

“It would be nice if he was like one day like, ‘Oh sh*t,’ I didn’t see this. But I don’t think that’s the character we’re dealing with,” she concluded.

As mentioned, this is not Smith’s first rodeo when it comes to ticking off females in Olivi’s profession.

A couple of months ago, the presenter paid $ 8 million per year for his thoughts said he just didn’t “want to see women punching each other in the face” in combat sports. 

I think that there’s an awful lot of women who are incredibly qualified to do the jobs they’re doing,” continued Smith’s outburst on Larry Wilmore’s ‘Black on the Air’ podcast.

Where I jump off the bandwagon is where they try to engage physically.

For example, I don’t ever want to see a woman boxing a man. I don’t want to see that. I don’t want to see a woman in the UFC fighting a man – even though there are some women out there that will kick the dude’s butt.”

As he ranted further, however, it became clear that Smith’s issue was with women fighting full stop, and not just against men.

When I think about pugilistic sports, I don’t like seeing women involved in that at all,” Smith said.

I just don’t like it. I wouldn’t promote legislating laws to prohibit them from doing so, but I don’t want to see women punching each other in the face. I don’t want to see women fighting in the Octagon and stuff like that. 

“That’s just me,” he signed off.

ANALYSIS: The Stephen Broderick arrest video — how do police safely detain people?

ANALYSIS: The Stephen Broderick arrest video — how do police safely detain people?

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Manor Police Department dash cam video shows exactly how Stephen Broderick, the suspect in the April 19 triple homicide in northwest Austin, was detained on Monday morning.

He was found walking along the road in between Manor and Elgin. There was no struggle when arrested, but he did have a loaded pistol on his waistband, that officers confiscated.

If you take a look at the video, you notice there’s a brief moment when Broderick’s right hand, which appears to be directly next to the pistol, is free — while officers work to handcuff him.

Reporter Jala Washington sat down with Dr. Howard Williams, a Lecturer with Texas State University’s School of Criminal Justice and Criminology Department. Williams also worked for the Austin Police Department for 25 years, and was the Chief of Police in San Marcos for 11 years.

This story will be updated after KXAN News at 6 p.m., with his take on both arrests.

Stephen Colbert Begs The Rock Not To Run For President: ‘We Don’t Need Another Celebrity’

Stephen Colbert Begs The Rock Not To Run For President: ‘We Don’t Need Another Celebrity’

TV host Stephen Colbert has implored wrestling champ Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson not to run for POTUS, in the wake of him teasing a presidential run.

Stephen Colbert has spoken out after former pro wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson teased a possible presidential run. A new poll suggested that 46 percent of Americans would be willing to consider the candidacy of a future President Rock, however the late night host suggested the nation doesn’t need another celebrity in the White House. “Look, folks. I love Dwayne ‘Rock’ the Johnson as much as the next middle-aged man who loves Fast Cars Go Zoom. But for the love of Ludacris, Dwayne! We don’t need another celebrity in the White House!” Stephen shouted at the camera on the April 13 episode of CBS’ Late Show.

“Just ’cause people love something doesn’t mean we should hand it the nuclear codes,” he continued. That’s why we’ve never elected President Surprise Onion Ring in Your French Fries. Besides, we’ve already have a couple of Presidents Johnson. We’d have to call his administration 2 POTUS 2 Prez: Executive Drift.”

Stephen concluded the segment by urging The Rock to reconsider his foray into politics. “Bottom line, Dwayne, you won’t even like the gig. You’re an action star. Being a president is boring. It’s all legislation and diplomacy and paperwork. And as we all know, paper beats Rock.” The 48-year-old actor and former professional wrestler recently took to Twitter in the wake of the surprising poll results, which added fuel to his rumored plans of running for POTUS.

“Not sure our Founding Fathers ever envisioned a six-four, bald, tattooed, half-Black, half-Samoan, tequila drinking, pick up truck driving, fanny pack wearing guy joining their club,” the Fast and the Furious star tweeted on April 10. He added, “But if it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve the people.” More than 30,000 Americans were polled by Piplsay, and 46 per cent of respondents said they would be open to having the Jumanji star in the White House. The Rock first teased a foray into politics back in 2017, and as recently as February, he floated the idea in an interview with USA Today, saying he would “consider a presidential run in the future if that’s what the people wanted.”

Taylor Swift’s Fans Attempt To Decode ‘Easter Eggs’ From Her Cryptic Interview With Stephen Colbert

Taylor Swift’s Fans Attempt To Decode ‘Easter Eggs’ From Her Cryptic Interview With Stephen Colbert

Fans went to work after Taylor Swift dropped mysterious numbers, New York references, song names and more ‘Easter eggs’ during her interview with Stephen Colbert. They came to one conclusion.

Fans are convinced that Taylor Swift dropped “Easter eggs” left and right during her interview with Stephen Colbert that aired on April 13. From cryptic numbers to tongue-in-cheek references to throwback songs, fans don’t think the 31-year-old pop star was simply being quirky during her Tuesday night appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert that seemed more like a planned skit than an interview. Fans think these supposed clues added up to one conclusion, too, which we’ll reveal after breaking down all these Easter eggs.

The interview begins with Stephen cheekily asking if Taylor’s song, “Hey Stephen,” is about the late night television host. It was a relevant question, since the singer just re-recorded the song (along with all of the other tracks on her 2008 album Fearless) for Fearless (Taylor’s Version), which came out on April 9. Taylor dropped what appeared to be her first clue when she replied, “No, Stephen…I mean I first recorded that song in 2008. I think I was like 18…I mean, you were probably about 44 years, 179 days old, give and or take several hours.”

Stephen said that’s “shockingly specific,” to which Taylor said in a deadpan voice, “Like i said, I’m a big fan.” So much so, the singer revealed that she sent a signed CD to Stephen’s office: “513 West 54th Street, New York, New York, 10019 2nd Floor Office, Facing the street.” Another clue?

The next major clue appeared to be her Stephen-inspired mood board, which Taylor joked that she made for “three days” to get her back “in the same headspace” that she was in while writing “Hey Stephen” in 2008. Taylor stressed that the mood board wasn’t just plastered with various photos of the talk show host over the years by pointing out the giant pizza in the corner. Fans had a lot to say about the pizza, which we’ll get to.

Taylor then started making references to 1989, her album from 2014. “‘Hey Stephen’ is not about you, anymore than my album 1989 is about that year you spent waiting tables on the lunch shift at Scoozi, an Italian restaurant in the river north area of Chicago, that by the way serves a really incredible slice of pizza,” Taylor said. Again with the pizza! With that said, a fan — among others — pointed out that “there are 5 pieces of pepperoni on the pizza and 1989 is her fifth album.” The pizza also appeared to be “New York-style,” another fan pointed, and one of Taylor’s 1989 songs is called “Welcome To New York.”

Taylor assured that this is simply common knowledge for anyone who “frequently checks” Stephen’s Wikipedia page, and told him, “You Need To Calm Down.” Yup — another 1989 Easter egg! She then jokingly revealed who “Hey Stephen” is really about: horror author Stephen King. “The Dark Tower series changed my life, plus The Shining, The Stand, and don’t even get me started on his short stories…absolutely luminescent,” she said. Well, one fan did their research and tweeted that the author’s short story collection called Dark Visions (similar in name to Dark Tower) came out in 1989.

Taylor then said that if she had really wrote the song about Stephen (the Colbert one), it would’ve went like, “Hey Stephen I love you on the TV, and all the stuff you did on The Daily Show and that time you were on Law & Order, your 5’11”, your middle name is Tyrone. Social security number is 33035.” Again with the numbers — fans pointed out the social security number adds up to 14, as you can see in the tweet below.

Taylor left fans with one last apparent clue: another song name from 1989. “Take the feeling that you’re feeling and just ‘Shake It Off,’ right? But that song is about you.” On top of all this, Taylor was wearing a cardigan for the interview (the name of her hit 2020 song from folklore).

Of course, this led fans to believe that Taylor’s next re-recorded album will be 1989 — they just don’t know when, if true. “Not Normal People (swifties): taylor is releasing 1989 in may bc there was a seagull on the poster and she said 33035179 which adds up to 31 which is 13 backwards and 31 days from now is may 14,” one fan teased. Many others seemed to think that Taylor’s next project is arriving May 14th as well, but there were all kinds of theories on Twitter (we shared some popular ones above). One fan combined all the Easter eggs in one tweet, which you can see below:

Taylor is on a mission to re-record her first six albums, after leaving her masters behind when she parted ways with Big Machine Records (formerly owned by Scott Borchetta) in 2018. Taylor currently does not own all her music, despite writing and recording the dozens of songs herself; Taylor’s lawyer, Donald Passman, alleged that Scott “never gave Taylor Swift an opportunity to purchase her masters, or the label, outright with a check in the way he is now apparently doing for others,” per a statement given to HollywoodLife in July of 2019.

“For years, I asked, pleaded for a chance to own my work,” Taylor explained in a Tumblr post in June of 2019. She added, “Instead, I was given an opportunity to sign back up to Big Machine Records and ‘earn’ one album back at a time, one for every new one I turned in.” Taylor’s nemesis, Scooter Braun, went on to acquire the rights to her masters that summer after his Ithaca Holdings LLC company acquired Big Machine Label Group from Scott. Scooter then sold the recording rights to Taylor’s first six albums to an investment firm called Shamrock Capital in Nov. 2020, according to The New York Times. Amid all this music drama, fans have rallied alongside Taylor and sworn to only listen to her re-recorded albums (which is exactly why they’re so excited for the new 1989 to drop, whenever it does).
