Winger Darts

One of many a number of footnotes to Metallica‘s music video for “Nothing Else Issues” is a scene that includes a sport of darts, so to talk, with a really particular goal: Winger chief Kip Winger. Nicely, not Kip Winger actually, however a photograph of him from {a magazine} affixed to a dart board within the studio rec room the place Metallica recorded The Black Album. Drummer Lars Ulrich could be seen, clear as day, throwing darts at Kip‘s picture, intently aiming for killer contact. To be trustworthy, it was fairly goddamn humorous.

Now, in some methods, it is higher that it was solely the video that almost all of viewers noticed. The “Nothing Else Issues” video is among the nice examples of old skool, “behind-the-scenes making of our album” music movies. However the Kip dart sport sequence can also be featured in its unique context in Half 1 of Metallica‘s pre-Some Type of Monster movie opus, A 12 months and a Half In The Lifetime of Metallica (1992 dwelling video), the place each Ulrich and vocalist-guitarist James Hetfield are screaming, “Die, Kip, Die!” repeatedly because the darts maintain flying.

However apparently, at the least one individual felt unhealthy about it, in response to Kip Winger, who lately sat down for an interview on the latest episode of the Urge for food for Distortion podcast, which you’ll be able to watch in full just under.

Requested if he took offense, Winger stated, “Nah, man, you’ll be able to see a video on [the] Howard Stern [Show], the place [Lars is] going, ‘Man, I threw darts at Kip, nevertheless it was nothing private.’ He is by no means apologized, however James Hetfield known as me a couple of yr and a half in the past and apologized for the incident. James was actually cool. James is the sort of man I can completely be mates with. And he was very honest; it wasn’t like he simply known as to apologize after which blow me off. He is really texted me a number of occasions; we textual content once in a while. I do not assume Lars would ever name me to apologize.”

Winger continued, saying “I feel all people was simply younger children, and so they have been considering it was humorous. To me, it isn’t humorous to slag off a fellow musician. However who is aware of? They have been simply doing what they have been doing. I do not know. I can not reply to that.”

Nicely, look… Kip Winger has bought for use to this by now—it isn’t simply Metallica whose taken the piss out of him by way of the years. Bear in mind how a lot he was relentlessly mocked on the unique Beavis and Butt-head sequence? Though, in equity, Kip does assume that was humorous, for what it is price. “Beavis And Butt-Head was hysterical; it was actually humorous, Winger stated. “I [just] ended up on the mistaken finish of it.”

There are some people who consider that any publicity is nice publicity. And much more folks consider that if you happen to’re not getting seen by somebody for actually something, then you definately’re doing this present enterprise factor all mistaken. So, given the selection, what would you are taking: being remembered for writing “Seventeen,” or having Metallica throw darts at you?

I am going to take the darts.
