Dave Grohl’s metal poetry

Rollingstone.com says Dave Grohl did a dramatic reading of the lyrics to Manowar’s “Gloves of Metal” last night at the Largo Theater in Hollywood. I never liked Manowar but going back and reading the lyrics – and watching the video – totally impressed me in a “I can’t believe this” sort of way. I forgot how awesomely metal these guys looked – it’s like the sequel to Spinal Tap.  It’s rare a band can dedicate themselves to wearing fur the way of Manowar. It’s a beautiful thing to see how much they meant it. And it, of course, really really funny.

    My God. The Cheese. These guys couldn’t be more Spinal Tap if they were Spinal Tap. They take it all so seriously, I hd a hard time not laughing out loud (which would have been uncool at the office.

    My dad used to say “Never work somewhere where you can’t laugh out loud at a Manowar video.”
