On Twitter, Metallica’s original bass guitarist Ron McGovney shared a new post and revealed the club that turned the lights off during their show and explained the reason behind it.
Recently on Twitter, the former bassist of Metallica replied to a tweet from one of the biggest fan pages of Metallica on social media, which was showing the poster of the last show that Metallica did with Ron McGovney before they replace him with Cliff Burton.
In his tweet responding to the rare photo, McGovney recalled the time, Metallica was playing at Mabuhay Gardens in San Francisco on November 30, 1982. Apparently, the iconic band’s live show took longer than expected and the owners of the club decided to turn the power off, according to Ron’s statement.
In this way, Ron proved that Metallica was already a badass band even before they got famous. Additionally, with his response, McGovney confirmed the exact date of his departure from Metallica.
A fan page of Metallica wrote:
“November 30th, 1982: Metallica‘s last gig with bassist Ron McGovney at San Francisco’s Mabuhay Gardens.”
Ron McGovney replied:
“The club turned the power off on us because we played too long.”
