Lead guitarist vs Rhythm guitarist[edit]

That James is the rhythm guitarist just because he is the lead vocalist is completely opinionative, just as much as it is incorrect. James and Kirk often share solo duties, hence why they are listed simply as "guitar", rather than one being lead guitar and the other being rhythm guitar.

Semi-protected edit request on 21 December 2018[edit]

Change "In late 1982, Ulrich and Hetfield attended a show at the West Hollywood nightclub Whisky a Go Go" to "In late 1982, Ulrich and Hetfield attended a show at the West Hollywood nightclub Troubadour"

Here are some sources: 1) Metallica mentor and Metal Blade CEO Brian Slagel also remembers the show being at the Troubadour: https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/7934137/metal-blade-founder-metallica-bassists-exclusive-book-excerpt 2) Previous bass player Ron McGovney remembers the show: https://www.iheart.com/content/2018-07-18-first-metallica-bassist-recalls-being-replaced-by-cliff-burton/ 3) Trauma seem to have played the Troubadour on Oct 28, 1982, which is right in the time frame where it could have happened (https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/trauma/1982/troubadour-west-hollywood-ca-bc9cd86.html). No mention of a Trauma show at Whisky-A-Go-Go in 1982 (e.g. here https://www.setlist.fm/search?query=whisky+a+go+go+1982).

Semi-protected edit request on 22 December 2018 (two broken links)[edit]

There are articles for Metallica's "... And Justice for All" and "Hardwired... to Self-Destruct" albums, however both links have been mistyped in the Discography section of this page. It should be wiki/...And_Justice_for_All_(album) not wiki/..._And_Justice_for_All_(album), and wiki/Hardwired..._to_Self-Destruct instead of wiki/Hardwired_..._to_Self-Destruct. These two links are also mistyped in their album's respective sections wiki/Metallica#..._And_Justice_for_All_and_Metallica_(1988–1993) (First paragraph) and wiki/Metallica#Metallica:_Through_the_Never_and_Hardwired_..._to_Self-Destruct_(2012–present) (Fifth paragraph) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arucardu (talkcontribs) 06:57, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

Hmains (and not unknowingly, as it has been brought up several times at their talk page) adds spaces before ellipses in their general fixes/punctuation edits, and doing it here – where there are links to two album articles with ellipses in their titles – just causes problems, so I've reverted the edit. 4TheWynne(talk)(contribs) 08:11, 22 December 2018 (UTC)
