    I always thought Dave joined Metallica in ’82.  He was on the No  Life ’til Leather demo after all

    actually, Suicide and Redemption is NOT the longest Metallica song. The Outlaw Torn clocks in at almost 11 minutes, but was cut shorter due to space restrictions on the Load CD. You can find the full song as a B-side on a single somewhere, don’t remember exactly.
