Last show on the Big Day Out tour, we are right now in Perth at the Claremont Showgrounds. The band has been in Perth for a couple of days (flew to Perth right after the Adelaide show). Check this shit out, if you went to City Beach, right outside Perth, yesterday you would see three band members out in the water trying to surf! Yes, that's right, we had the Metallica circus invading City Beach. Normally we would have Kirk & Rob hitting the waves, but this time around James was there too. We had Jake "The Snake" Patterson as a surf instructor. I asked how James was doing, and his answer was "He got up on the first wave, and had a sick ride". NUFF SAID, GOOD ONE PAPA HET!Talk to ya in a bit...MOT
