(Classic Rock) Metallica's Lars Ulrich has voiced concern for the future of rock and metal, saying he's not sure where the big stars of tomorrow will come from. The latest edition of Classic Rock, on sale now, looks at the current state of the industry and where it might go next, asking the question: Is rock dying? And the Metallica drummer had similar thoughts on his mind when he took part in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session last night.
Discussing the future he said: "I think it would be so awesome if there was a band that come along and shook it all up again. I just don't know who. I think the coolest band for me in the last couple years is Baroness. I also love Norwegian band Kvelertak. But I just don't know if any of these bands can take it to those heights, unfortunately."
Ulrich didn't steer clear of his notorious lawsuit against early filesharing service Napster, saying: "I don't regret taking on Napster - but I do find it odd how big of a part of our legacy it has become to so many people. To me it's more like a footnote. He had a lot more to say about that and other topics.
