Not much, musically. Mind you Paul’s vocal on ‘Helter Skelter’ was in 1968 as dark and heavy as most Metallica, in relative terms.
The commonality right now is that Metallica, Paul McCartney, and Florence and the Machine have been announced as the headliners for this year’s Lollapalooza at Grant Park in Chicago on July 31st-August 2nd.
Metallica sez: “It’s been nearly 20 years since we’ve been lucky enough to take the stage at Lollapalooza, so we are over the top that we’ve been asked to play this year at the now annual extravaganza held at Grant Park in Chicago. We’ll be hitting the stage on Saturday, August 1st.”
