After Saying He Likes Metallica, Hatch Claims to be a Deadhead

WASHINGTON, DC -- The Roll Call, the Capitol Hill political newspaper recalls that during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Napster, Senator Patrick Leahy observed that his "beloved Grateful Dead allowed anyone to tape their live shows and then trade tapes, without ever demanding a nickel for the rights." Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, an LDS Church member, couldn't pass on that opportunity, and proclaimed, "I like the Grateful Dead, too, but I'm not a slavish devotee."

Hatch's remark came after his opening remarks in the hearings, in which Hatch claimed, as he was about to introduce Metallica's drummer Lars Ulrich, that he had listened to Metallica that morning. "Pretty darn good" he said.
