||TONY MOTTRAM'S SHOT OF THE MONTH
BIRTHDAY MEMORIES WITH METALLICA
The second week of June heralds another year gone for me! But I`m still hanging in here!
Back in 88 I found myself on assignment in Washington DC, USA with Metallica who I'd got to know well by then.
The evening of my birthday, due to a soft, tired journalist, I ended up in the bar by myself and then took a wander down to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
Strangely sober the next day, at the Monsters Of Rock show I certainly made up for a quiet night! Kirk had just got a new video camera and off we went getting some 'choice' images... 'spose they don't exist anymore but one day I'll write the stories up for y'all!!
Anyway I hope this selection of images gives you a taster of my great memories at 30!
