Metallica's Kirk Hammett Looks Back At Master of Puppets
The guitarist says he'd sometimes have to hang around for days, playing cards with late bassist Cliff Burton. But despite that, he has fond memories of making the 1986 work, recently voted the greatest heavy metal album of all time.
"That album is my favourite Metallica album. We'd been playing together as a band with that lineup for about three years," Hammett tells Rolling Stone. "We were definitely peaking. Master of Puppets, in my opinion, was the sound of a band really gelling, really learning how to work well together."
