We're the token metal act on these award shows.

James may get angry with Lars with the time he takes on the drums, but if you looked him in the eye and asked him who his best friend is, he'd say Lars.

I'm still a big Metallica fan. I've gotta say that Metallica are the hardest working, most dedicated and determined band around. As an outsider I thought so, and now I'm an insider, I think the same thing.

Cliff had some very loyal fans, including me.

We do whatever we want, more than we could before, and we get away with it. It's really cool.

We don't have to do any shit we don't want to. If it doesn't come out good, forget it. It has to be unique, something that really represents us.

It's getting more comfortable for me to offer up ideas to Metallica. James Hetfield especially is really a genius when it comes to writing. It really amazes me sometimes. He can come up with the heaviest, chunking riffs, and then turn around and do something so pretty it makes you tingle. These guys are all the upper sect of classy musicians.

It was tough to get used to playing two hours. At Monsters we only did an hour. When you do two hours you can't be slamming the whole time. You've got to pace yourself so you can't be strong the whole time.

I eat two hours before we go on and practice for a half hour. I've been walking out in the crowds. I put on my incognito disguise and check out the scene. It's cool to do that, soak up the vibe of the kids. A few recognized me, so I gave 'em passes.

Metallica is going to be one of the bands you look back on in the year 2008, that people will still listen to the way I still listen to Zeppelin and Sabbath albums.

I ended up gettin' a little Gibson amp and a bass, because of Gene Simmons of Kiss. Myself and three other kids would pretend to be Kiss--I liked Gene the best.

He was a great and very special talent...Cliff's solos were absolutely brilliant.

INFOOn Cliff
There was a huge shadow there. I'd always looked up to him so much.


THANKSanonymous

It's cool, having the control, the last word. It's very comfortable. We've always watched ourselves as far as keeping in shape. We base our whole day around the shows 'cause we want it to be as good as possible.


THANKSanonymous

As far as players, what I really like is Geezer Butler, Chris Squire, Lemmy, and Geddy Lee.

Kiss is the reason that I ever got a bass in the beginning. I wanted a bass because I liked Gene Simmons. So I had my dad buy me one for my fourteenth birthday.

'Blackened' is probably my favorite song on Justice. I just like the grooves. It's got a good feel. 'Orion' and 'For Whom The Bell Tolls' are my favorite old songs.

I was a farm boy. My father and I raised Arabian stallions on our farm. I rode all the time, and I did the circuit horse shows, all that sort of crap.

I listen to weird stuff that no one else likes. Old Motown or Elvis or Temptations. Louis Armstrong, Tom Waits. I still listen to a lot of heavy stuff. Violence and Sacred Reich. Black Sabbath and Zeppelin are still the best. We play them in the dressing room. Blue Oyster Cult. We listen to Red Hot Chilis too.

Filling Cliff's shoes really had me worried. Then I realized I had to live with it. I just have to crush everyone and do my own thing.

One thing that we want to do that's fairly close in range is play the Soviet Union.

Metallica presented me with a gold album for Master Of Puppets. I didn't expect one. That's when it really hit me that I was part of Metallica.

To this day, there's not a half hour that goes by that I don't just go, 'OK, I'm gonna wake up, and this is all gonna be a dream.' But ten years have passed, and I still haven't woken up.
