They had the songs, they had the fire, they had the attitude and it was 30 years ago, when it all began.  A fan produced The History of Metallica: A 150 minute ten part video documentary and posted it to You Tube. Sit back relax and watch.

 The ad read:  Drummer looking for other metal musicians to jam with. 

The rest they say is history.  30 years later, Metallica is still going strong.  A 10 part You Tube Documentary of Metallica.  Dont mind the italian subtitles.  The fan produced video uses footage from an Italian filmmakers ZonaMetallica and MilanicaChannel.

This is very well put together, its entertaining and gives the band justice.  From the beginning, thru loses and triumphs it is a complete history of a band that influences so many.
