“That was a major thing, and you know, fortunately, we hooked up with a group of people, COVID-expert people, who were able to help us accomplish what we needed to do, which was be together as a band and be together with our crew in a way that made sense all the way around, health-wise specifically.”
Kirk Hammett continued his words by touching the current chemistry of his band Metallica.
“Yeah. And beyond that, let’s talk about the chemistry of the band coming together after a year. I’ll put you on the spot. You were never in doubt that the ‘click’ was going to happen?
“I expect it. I expect that to happen. And I’d be hard-pressed to show up and all of a sudden there was no ‘click.’ The only reason, the only way that happens, is if we’re not playing together and we’re just talking instead of playing.”
