Metallica Quotes

United States,

Metallica is an American heavy metal band. The band was formed in 1981 in Los Angeles, California by drummer Lars Ulrich and vocalist/guitarist James Hetfield, and has been based in San Francisco, California for most of its career. The group's fast tempos, instrumentals and aggressive musicianship made them one of the founding "big four" bands of thrash metal, alongside Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer. Metallica's current lineup comprises founding members Hetfield and Ulrich, longtime lead guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo. Guitarist Dave Mustaine (who went on to form Megadeth) and bassists Ron McGovney, Cliff Burton and Jason Newsted are former members of the band.

  • Kirk Hammett: I had to play the intro on a Coral sitar. My hands were shaking so much, and I kept on thinking to myself, 'Don't mess up. Don't mess up. Don't mess up.' And I played it right for only the second time out of 75 attempts.
  • Kirk Hammett: We had to take COVID tests every other day before it, and everyone in the entire building had to wear a mask. It's just something you have to do, but considering the alternative doing nothing, I'd still rather do this than any other way.
  • Lars Ulrich: In a day or two, we'll hit the stage at a top secret location and we'll record a brand new show. We will miss all of you, of course. We'll be rocking out to a few of the crew people.
