Metallica Says Classic Rock and Metal Still Relevant To Current Generation

(Gibson) As Metallica prepare to travel Down Under for a series of shows this fall, drummer Lars Ulrich spoke at some length with local paper the Herald Sun about subjects as diverse as playing to younger crowds, the Napster fallout and suffering from ongoing ribbing at the hands of former Oasis guitarist-songwriter Noel Gallagher.

Regarding the younger generations that are filling arenas to see the band these days, Ulrich said:

"A lot of kids are getting turned on to our stuff by their parents who grew up with us. Somehow the music from the '80s Metallica and Megadeth and Slayer and '70s stuff like Thin Lizzy and Deep Purple and Black Sabbath they seem to have a relevance to kids these days. They seem to connect with it." - more on this story
