20 Years Ago Today: Metallica Rock Orange County Fairgrounds

I remember it like it was yesterday: me and a bunch of my headbanger friends are taking final exams in our junior year of high school in Dover Plains NY, just waiting to get through them so we can get on the road and head out to Middletown for Metallica!

It was June 17th, 1994 and we had a convoy of several cars heading out on I84. You knew it was summertime when they were rockin in Middletown, and it was a hot summer day. The Concert: Metallica with guests Danzig and Suicidal Tendencies will forever be in my memory as one of the greatest concerts I have ever attended.
