Alright, so, admittedly, you're going to have to suspend disbelief a little as we frame this next item, and you'll need to operate under the premise that A) time travel is a reality, and B) the internet existed in the mainstream realm in 1983. Got it? Okay, good. Now imagine you're a pimply faced kid paging through the services offered section of an online classified bulletin board (settle down -- not those kinds of services, you perv) and you come across an ad for private lessons from Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett. Hell yeah, right? Pretty sick!

GUITARIST REECE SCRUGGS

Exactly. That's more or less what we have here: Guitarist Reece Scruggs and drummer Pete Webber from Havok are both offering private lessons individually on Craigslist during some rare downtime from touring. The former is offering his expert tutelage for $30 for thirty minutes (or $45 for an hour), while the latter will teach you how to pound the skins for $25 for a half hour lesson. BTW, in case you think the Metallica comparison is lofty, check out the clips above and below to see precisely what kind of prowess we're talking about here.

@dave.herrera @thisisnews ...it was obviously enough for you to post an article about it. Lots of bands and artists making noise on their own in this town, and you post (advertise) about a band's members offering lessons. Lots of good bands who have members giving lessons, why blog about this one? Your prerogative, just saying.

@thisisnewsThis is pretty straight forward, really: We've been writing about this band since its members were still in high school, playing Metallica songs. 

Since then, Havok has gone on to earn worldwide fame and acclaim, touring with some of the biggest names in metal and essentially leading a thrash resurgence.

Given their status, the fact that the guys are offering private lessons on Craigslist during their downtime is noteworthy. Thus, we opted to write a short blog item about it.

Trust: If there's another band or artist in this town that's making noise, as you put it, chances are better than good that you'll read about it here.
