METALLICA Challenges DJ To Lose 100 Pounds By November For A Killer Reward
100.3 FM The X radio DJ Jeremi Schlader, better known as Big J, wanted to lose some weight. Schlader is 424 pounds currently and posted about his goals to lose weight online with the hashtag #MetallicaDiet. The idea behind the hashtag is that if he lost 100 pounds by the time Metallica comes to play 100.3 FM The X's hometown of Boise, Idaho at the Taco Bell Arena on November 28, the band has to give him an on-air interview with all four members.
Metallica has since agreed, because they're good dudes who seem to be hellbent on making the world a slightly better place. We also wish Schlader all the best in his weight loss journey – you can do it dude! Metallica's stop in Boise, Idaho is one of many the band will be making in both 2018 and 2019 throughout their insane touring schedule. Get all the dates here.
