David Letterman has been on television for over 30 years now, but did you know that he is obsessed with drums? No matter how much Letterman you've watched in your life, I be you didn't take notice of his fascination with visiting bands' drum sets. Most talk show hosts will greet the lead singer first after a band has played. Not Letterman. He heads over to the drummer straight off and asks if those are in fact "your drums."

The loyalist crowd erupted in song, screaming Queen at the top of their lungs!
Orion Music + More Festival is more than just the music (although a lot of it is all about the music.) In addition to all of the bands playing, each of the members of Metallica brought a long a little bit of themselves along. For example, Kirk is a HUGE horror movie fan and has one of the largest collections of memorabilia in the country. He set up a mini-mausoleum at the festival to show off some of his stuff. Check it out after the jump.
Metallica surprised Orion festival goers with a secret show to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their first studio album, Kill 'Em All. The band listed themselves as 'dehaan,' an unknown band from Baltimore.

Yes, you read that right, starting at just $20 a ride, you may soon be able to hire your very own chauffeur. But I wouldn't expect these chauffeurs to be wearing suites with fancy hats. More likely, blue jeans and motorcycle helmets.
