A women should be able to make her own decisions whether or not she should have a baby. She should have control over her body, not the fucking government, congressman, or whatever.

I have a little table with a reading light, and those guys have it quite cozy too, I'm not to the point where I take newspapers down there yet, but I have seen certain band members reading scuba magazines while other guys solo.

We used to sleep four to a room. I had to share a bed with Lars, he used to take all the blankets. I would never sleep with Cliff, because he had really pointy elbows. Really bony. Actually no one snores much. We drool a lot.

Sold out?! Sure we sold out, last tour we sold out almost everywhere we played

The worst thing that can be said about me has already been said; that I'm a total shit crap guitar player. And you know what? On certain nights I have to agree! Hey, we're only human!

If we had hung it up, Cliff would've been so pissed off.

In Denmark while recording Master Of Puppets, we hung out a lot. We'd go out and play poker for 8 hours straight after being up for 24 hours. We'd find a seafood restaurant that was open, eat raw oysters and drink beer, scream at the natives while we were drunk....that's some of my best memories of him.

There was this incident when we were in New York and a friend of mine sent me a whole case full of liquor. So we celebrated its arrival and were there drinking it until four in the morning, then went to visit Jason...He sleeps with earplugs on and didn't hear us knocking, so what we did was call the doorman and said, 'Hey man, our friend's in there choking on his puke! We have to get in there!'....We kicked the door in...turned the bed over on Jason, sprayed shaving cream everywhere, threw his money all over and took his blaster...He didn't say anything. It was really funny.

It's so strange and completely needless that so many people become caught up with the whole idea of selling image rather than accepting people for who and what they really are.

I would have never imagined that we'd be as popular as we are right now.

We're on commercial flights and sometimes the stewardess will call you by your first name. It kind of throws you a bit.


THANKSanonymous
DATE1989
I hate being treated like some kind of icon, that's totally uncomfortable for me. I simply want to be thought of as a musician.


THANKSanonymous
DATE1989
We're doing this for ourselves. If we write an album, it would be something we'd be satisfied with. We don't come up with something for the kids to like and put our demands on the back burner because our last album was so good we have to make a carbon copy of it. That was the furthest thing from our minds.


THANKSanonymous
DATE1989
There are actually quite a few bands not necessarily in our genre, that reflect what's going on nowadays. Public Enemy, N.W.A.-two rap bands I can think of that are the best examples-their lyrics are so heavy! Bands like them or us are simply a reflection of the times, a statement on our world. It's an ugly place and the sad thing is that the world doesn't seem to get any better as the years go by.

My guitars are my umbilical cord. They're directly wired to my head.


THANKSanonymous
DATE1989
One thing that constantly pisses me off is what's happening with the environment nowadays. I'm an environmentalist, though I think I probably create more than my share of noise pollution every time we play.


THANKSanonymous
DATE1989
I have a new house I haven't seen yet, a new car I haven't seen yet, I miss eating food that my wife has cooked for me...It would be nice to wake up in my own bed, see my cat-y'know, just hang out. It's funny, I find myself constantly daydreaming of staying in the same place.

Such a huge void was created after Cliff died - a really big hole that only he could fill.

INFOOn Cliff
I remember him really loving the way Ed King of Lynyrd Skynyrd played guitar. He'd always ask me to show him Skynyrd licks, and then he'd end up saying, 'Man that's tricky, that's really tricky.'


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
It was really unusual because I was standing there and I'm always polite about it - 'Hi Dave, how ya doin'?' And he goes 'Hey, how ya doin'?' And basically he just came up to me and apologized for all the bad-mouthing that he did to me and the band. I was really surprised. I think that was a result of him cleaning up and actually being able to think with a clear head... I thought it was very decent of him.

We liked the sound of his name.

There's a lot of nonmusical things that demand our attention right now, like family being the number one thing, having a life outside the band, you know? Having enough private time that isn't consumed by the band - that's what I'm talking about.

INFOOn the fans who don't like Met's current direction
Maybe they're just not very evolved musically. Maybe they're just not musically mature in the way they hear things.

It happened on every album. It comes to the point where he just like, screams at me, and it's halfway through what we're doing. He's venting, but he's also right, too. But he brings out the best in me. If anything he is the music director of Metallica. The music dictator.


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
I don't listen to critics. I read reviews (and) take it all with a grain of salt, take the good with the bad. It really doesn't phase me, because they can't change what I really feel about the music.

I'm death obsessed. You know, I have death all over my house. I have a stuffed two headed sheep!

INFOOn Blues Musicians
B.B King, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy - these are guys who did it when there wasn't even much of a living they could make out of it. I have a tremendousrespect for them sticking in there and hanging onto it, and it finally paying off in their later years, thank God.


THANKSanonymous

INFOOn Dyers Eve
I forgot how to play it. We never play it live. Certain members of the band are very adamant about not playing it. I think it's a physical thing. There's some awful fast strums in that song.

One of these days I'm gonna put out an experimental album that's gonna be so fucked up it will probably sell 10 copies, but I am gonna put it out.

A lot of people get pissy about people like Kenny Wayne Shepherd, or Jonny Lang, and say, 'How can they know the blues? They're too young.' Well let me tell you something, man: They're tapping into emotions that everyone's born with. And the blues is all about those emotions.


THANKSanonymous

I will go on the record to say I will do anything for a good riff. I'll listen to the most retarted music in the world, if it will inspire me to write a good riff.


THANKSanonymous

Whichever way you go, someone is going to tell you you're wrong. My point is that you should just go with your heart and just play what you want to play and not listen to what's fashionable or what's trendy at the moment.


THANKSanonymous
DATE1988
We're the underdogs. We haven't had a Top 10 hit, and we look like a bunch of bums out there. Amidst all this glam and this huge production, we're going to stick out. But that's what we're here for--and that's what put us here in the first place.


THANKSanonymous

I'm very fortunate to be doing the thing I do best, which is play guitar. There aren't many other things I could do.

To this day, I think about him every day.


THANKSanonymous

I had seen Cliff in this band called Easy Street when I was like 16 years old at a club called International Cafe in San Francisco...It always stuck out in my mind. This guy with wild, wild red hair flying all over the place and a Rickenbacker and a real distinct bass style and I thought to myself, 'This guy is fucking wild!'


THANKSanonymous

I realized I was part of the band when we started cutting tracks for the album.

As a kid I was introverted. I read a lot. I had a fascination with comic books, monster magazines, and monster movies, which carries on through now. I'm still heavily into monster movies and monster toys.


THANKSanonymous

My brother got me into music. He started playing guitar around 1968. He was a hippie. He exposed me to the Haight-Ashbury scene, so I was exposed to Hendrix, Zeppelin, and Santana right when that stuff was release, '67, '68, '69.


THANKSanonymous

On Monsters Of Rock we had nothing to do, so we went to a lot of nightclubs.

Tom Hunting, the drummer, and I started Exodus in 1981. That was my first band. We played a lot of clubs, and we did one demo tape, which is pretty collectible on the underground circuit. We actually played with Metallica when Dave Mustaine was in the band.


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
We (Spastic Children) do it just to be really shitty on stage, we're really awful because we're all on an instrument we don't usually play. We play stuff like 'Pus Is Great' and 'I Like Farts.' Metallica fans expect us to play Metallica songs, but we never do. The last time we played, we came out in our underwear. We were going to play naked but the club owner threatened to call the police.


THANKSanonymous
DATEunknown
My affiliation with Metallica began the time Exodus played with Metallica. I talked to Lars and James briefly, in passing. They were planning to go to New York to hook up with Johnny Z and do their first album. They had been having problems with Dave, and they were looking for someone who was more a melodic, controlled player. Our soundman played them some tapes of Exodus live, and they liked what they heard. They gave me a call in April 1983 and asked me if I wanted to join Metallica. I thought it was an April Fools' joke, but I said 'sure' anyway.

Getting back on the road is a very healthy thing for us 'cause we had so much time off--we were getting a bit edgy. The domestication was showing.

This is the greatest part of it--getting up on stage and playing. This is what it's all about.

He invented the Church of Tone. He had monster tone, monster technique, monster songs. And soul to spare.
