Lars Looks Towards The Long Future For Metallica


(Classic Rock) Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich says he wants the band to keep touring and recording until their bodies give out. And even when that day arrives, he believes they'd still have the mental capacity to keep going.

The thrash icons will release long-awaited 10th album Hardwired… To Self Destruct on November 18, to be followed by extensive touring in 2017. Ulrich tells Rolling Stone: "The only unknown is the physical element of it. If the arms and legs and knees and shoulders and throats, the backs, the necks - if all that stays intact, there's no reason we shouldn't be able to do this for a significant amount of time longer."

Comparing his hopes of longevity with the Rolling Stones' career, he says: "I love the Stones more than anybody else on this planet. What we do, I'd like to argue, is slightly more physically demanding in terms of the energy that goes into it.

"Songs like Battery, Master Of Puppets or One have this insane physical energy and demand. If you can't play it at the demand it deserves, it's better not to play it. That's the only unknown - I think mentally we could do this for another 100 years." Read more here.
