METALLICA's 'The Howard Stern Show' Appearance Set For Next Monday
METALLICA will guest on "The Howard Stern Show" on SiriusXM satellite radio on Monday, September 23. Back in July, Gary Dell'Abate, the executive producer of "The Howard Stern Show", revealed that METALLICA would take part in an interview and perform two of its "classic" songs on the program. As previously reported, METALLICA is rumored to be preparing a surprise performance at Yankee Stadium in New York to honor retiring Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera. The New York Daily News noted last month that METALLICA will be in town to perform at the Apollo Theater on September 21, one day before the Yankees stage a celebration of Rivera's career on September 22 prior to their game against the San Francisco Giants — who happen to be METALLICA's hometown team. And why would METALLICA pay tribute to the legendary Rivera, who's calling it quits after nearly 20 years with the Yanks? Because for most of those years, the future Baseball Hall Of Famer has been coming out of the bullpen to close out games to the tune of METALLICA's "Enter Sandman" playing on the stadium's P.A. system. According to The Pulse Of Radio, the Daily News contacted Yankees reps about the matter, but a team spokesperson would not comment on "any events surrounding Mo's ceremony." METALLICA performed at Yankee Stadium once before, nearly two years ago in September 2011 when the "Big Four" tour with SLAYER, ANTHRAX and MEGADETH stopped there. As previously reported, METALLICA is playing at the Apollo to promote the release of its new movie, "Metallica Through The Never". The 3D IMAX film made its world premiere on September 9 at the Toronto International Film Festival before opening on September 27 at IMAX theaters and expanding onto additional screens on October 4.

As I Lay Dying's Tim Lambesis Ordered to Stand Trial in Alleged Murder-for-Hire Plot
As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis has been ordered to stand trial on a charge that he tried to have his estranged wife killed. A San Diego judge issued the ruling Monday following a preliminary hearing in the case, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Sheriff Deputy Howard Bradley testified at the hearing that he posed as a hitman and met with Lambesis earlier this year at a bookstore. Bradley said Lambesis told him he wanted his estranged wife “gone. I want her never, ever, ever to come back."
Bradley further testified the rocker told him, “Just so you know, I do want her dead.”
Bradley said Lambesis gave him a payment of one thousand dollars and an envelope containing photos of his estranged wife. He said they agreed on a total price of 20 thousand dollars for the hit.
Bradley also said Lambesis provided a list of dates when he would have the couple's three adopted children, which would provide him an alibi when the hit was executed.
Lambesis and his wife, Meggan, separated last September.
Lambesis, 32, was arrested last May. He has pleaded not guilty to solicitation for murder, with his attorney having claimed the singer's thought process was “devastatingly affected” by steroid use.
Lambesis has been free on two million dollars bail since late May.
