Weak Recap: Yes we can, bitch!

A few months ago, I had a dream. A dream that we could recap our weeks on Sunday without falling in the blog cliche of just making a list of some of our articles. And my creativity and my egomania had sex and came up with the offspring that is The Weak Recap.

Basically we recap the week by interviewing each other. It feeds our egos and it’s letting you know how awesome we’ve been the week before.

So now it’s my turn to interview NFL legend, influential guitarist and all-around amazing metal bloger, Simo. After the jump.


Learn to play guitar like Jaymz

I think we can all agree that James Hetfield is one of the best metal guitarists around. He may not be a lead guitarist, but he wrote Master Of Puppets. Enough said. That’s like a ‘get out of a metal argument free card’ or something.

– Metallica did this and that, I hate them now!
– But dude, they wrote Master Of Puppets.
– Damn, you’re right.

Anyway, want to play guitar just like him? It’s possible. You must get his new signature EMG pickups, though. That’s all you need, really… Oh, you also need talent, but that’s a relative term these days (Lady Gaga anyone?).

Make the jump for a teaser clip of the pickups. To be honest, they look badass.


Weak Recap: We’re bringing sexy back

Another week behind us, another week of total metal kickassery. “But hey Simo, this week hasn’t been that special really…” – I hear some of you saying, and to clarify, when I say kickassery, I mean the way we’ve covered everything. Hell, we could comment on funerals or people sleeping and make it sound interesting as hell.

Kids, prepare your tissues and toilet paper, Mark and I are taking a trip down the memory lane, and it’s going to be sexy.


Max Cavalera wants Ozzy and Jaymz

Max Cavalera wants Ozzy Osbourne and James Hetfield… Not in that way (I hope), he wants to work with them.

Ozzy is, of course, the Godfather of metal and Black Sabbath and his solo career. I’ve played with him many times and I know him personally, but I’ve never got to actually ask him to record anything yet. But I think at one point the chance will definitely come. I would also like to do something with James Hetfield because I love old Metallica and I’ve always been a big fan of the thrash that Metallica brought and I like James’ vocals. I thought a thrash song with me and James singing would have been really cool, too.

Read full interview here.

A thrash song with James? Haha, what’s next? Death Metal with Miley Cyrus?

But seriously, I can see why one would want to work with two of the most legendary metal frontmen of all time, but this isn’t the 80s… If you want to work with these two, you’d have to have a National Geographic show about hunting or a reality show… Just sayin’.



Everyone can play guitar like Jaymz

A few good months ago, we told you that all you need to play guitar like James “Yeeeaaaah” Hetfield is to have his signature picks. Someone listened.

Not only did he get the picks, he also got a similar looking guitar and a similar looking shirt and tried to cover the video above. The result? Absolutely amazing. Metal riffing at its finest.

Make the jump to see it. James, if you’re reading it, I hope you’re taking notes.
