    Watch METALLICA's Entire Performance At GLOBAL CITIZEN Festival METALLICA played an abbreviated set Saturday (September 24) at the Global Citizen festival in New York City. The free event on the Great Lawn in Central Park aired live on MSNBC.The band's setlist was as follows:01. For Whom The Bell Tolls02. Master Of Puppets03. One04. Nothing Else Matters05. Enter SandmanCheck out video footage below.The multi-hour concert, in its fifth year, encourages people to get involved and tackle global issues pertaining to health, education, hunger and the environment."I love my sons. I want them to 'inherit the Earth,'" METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich said of the band's participation in the event. "We keep waiting for future generations to solve the problems… I want lawmakers and laws to impose change. Nothing else will keep this world safe for my sons."Regarding METALLICA's philanthropic work, Ulrich said: "We do as much as we can… The hardest thing about these types of things is just finding the right balances between how vocal you are about it, because sometimes when you're really vocal about it, there could be a fear of … just tooting our own horn."Asked why METALLICA wanted to perform at Global Citizen, Ulrich told the New York Post: "The festival has been on our radar for a few years. I was watching [Stephen] Colbert last year and Hugh Evans [co-founder of Global Poverty Project] came out. I was super-impressed at how passionate and personable he is. Not to rank do-gooders, but sometimes you wonder if there's an ulterior motive. But he has an earnestness that is very infectious. And there's a politically neutral tone to what he does."METALLICA's tenth studio album, "Hardwired...To Self-Destruct", is scheduled for a November 18 release via Blackened Recordings. The long-awaited follow-up to 2008's "Death Magnetic" consists of two discs, containing a dozen songs and nearly 80 minutes of music."Hardwired...To Self-Destruct" was produced by Greg Fidelman with frontman James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich. The band recorded the disc at its own studio.METALLICA will next appear at Neil Young's Bridge School Benefit in Mountain View, California on October 22 and October 23.

    During a September 22 appearance on SEX PISTOLS guitarist Steve Jones's radio show, "Jonesy's Jukebox", SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor spoke about theemergency spinal surgery he was forced to undergo in early June, when it was discovered that he had been walking around for years with a broken neck. He said: "What happened was I went in for just a routine physical. You hit a certain age, and you have to start having those old-man updates. I had just turned 42, and I went in and had physical done, 'cause I was having some stuff going on. And my doctor was, like, 'Hmm, you need to go to a spinal specialist.' So I went in and did an MRI and whatever, and what I found out was I had a very old injury in my two vertebrae — my C5 and C6 — were completely compressed together, destroyed the disc, and the bone was growing into my spinal cord. [The doctor] told me, 'I've seen MMA fighters that don't have it this bad.' He was, like, 'I can't believe you're walking.' So I had to go in for emergency spinal surgery that actually postponed the last tour I just did for three weeks. They jacked my vertebrae up, they put a replacement disc in, they shaved the bone back, and I still have a gnarly bruise on my spinal cord."Taylor went on to say that the injury wasn't affecting his voice but that "it was affecting my body." He revealed: "I had no strength on the left side of my body. My balance was completely off. I was getting electric shocks all through my body. I was basically incontinent."Asked how he is feeling now, less than four months after the surgery, Taylor said: "I feel great now. I'm [back to] about 75 [percent] right now. In two or three months, I should be about 80 percent. The doctor said in about a year I'll be a hundred — hopefully. He said I'm recovering really well though."Pressed about where and when he thinks he might have sustained the injury that led to his recent surgery, Taylor said: "The only thing that I can think of is at Ozzfest '99, I fell off the front of the stage, I fell four feet and I landed on top of my head. And I think that is what did it. You know, you're 24 and you don't even process that. You're, like, 'Whoah, whatever. I'm too metal for pain.' It went on and just over the years, it's just exacerbatedand just gotten worse."Taylor was told by doctors to avoid jumping and headbanging onstage during SLIPKNOT's summer tour with MARILYN MANSON, and he told The Pulse Of Radio that the restrictions have changed the way he performs for the better. "I've had to kind of reassess what I do live, you know," he said. "But at the same time, the positive is that I love the challenge of it. Maybe I've relied on those things for too long, let's see if I can get through a show or a tour without having to go to these kind of mainstays. And the shows have been great. I've been damn near on pitch-wise, my stamina's a lot better — it's like I'm really kind of filling in all these weird blanks."Taylor slipped and fell onstage not long into the MANSON tour, but said it looked worse than it was. He said: "I just wanted to make sure I didn’t break anything, that I didn’t re-aggravate it. The video looks terrible — but I'm laying on the ground just laughing my ass off."SLIPKNOT will perform its 2001 album "Iowa" in its entirety at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest on Sunday, September 25 at San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, California.
