Metallica Don't Plan To Rock Into Their 70s

(Classic Rock) Metallica don't see themselves playing into their 70s as their music is too physically demanding. While bands like Black Sabbath are still going in their late 60s and Deep Purple continue to play on through their 70s, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, 52, isn't sure he wants to be performing the band's thrash hits when he is a pensioner.

He tells Billboard: "Whether we'll be able to play Master Of Puppets in our 70's, I just don't know. With Metallica, there's a physicality and a weight that has to be part of it.

"You can play it less heavy, slower - or you can realize that the music deserves that physical approach, and if the physical delivery isn't there, then maybe it's better not to do it."

Frontman James Hetfield, 53, adds that he refuses to dye his hair or grow old disgracefully, insisting Metallica don't try to hide their age. He says: "We know we're not supposed to mature in this field. People don't want you to. They want you to look young and cool and dye your hair and all that sh*t. We respect our age - we're not trying to hide it." Read more here.
