  1. A minor correction for you, December 14th ,1983 gig was played in Milwaukee Wisconsin , not Madison, I was there , still have the ticket stub for proof. My guitar tech jumped up and grabbed Hetfields guitar in mid-thrash and was rewarded with a kick to the chest without skipping a beat………..never forget it. The Darkness beckons, heed it’s silent call ! Prophet Lives !!
