(Classic Rock) Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett has described the reunited Guns N' Roses as a "nostalgia act." As Metallica gear up to release their 10th album Hardwired... To Self-Destruct on November 18, Hammett commented on Guns N' Roses - who are on the road with Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan from their classic lineup for the first time since 1993.

And the fact that GNR have not recorded any new music and have been playing only their classic hits is "sad" to the Metallica guitarist. Hammett tells the Los Angeles Times: "Unfortunately, they've turned into somewhat of a nostalgia act, which to me is kind of sad."

Frontman James Hetfield says releasing new music makes Metallica "feel relevant." He adds: "I don't want to think we're trying to stay young by writing new stuff, but it makes us feel relevant. It makes us feel like we're still progressing." Read more here.
