James Hetfield Answers Metallica Fans’ Criticisms After Miley Cyrus Collaboration
Metallica frontman James Hetfield answered fans’ criticisms in a recent interview with The Guardian. The frontman touched on his band’s stability and said that nothing would change it. He cleared the air about fans’ concerns and said that Metallica is Metallica, so there is nothing to worry about the band’s future.
“Thirty years of the Black Album, it’s a pretty big year,” Hetfield said. “We’re overachievers and we’re perfectionists. We think outside the box and we try to be the first at things. There’s no nostalgia driving this band; we used to be very fearful of it.
“We cast the net as wide as possible: to rock, alternative, country, bluegrass and rap. I know there’s a lot of Metallica fans out there who are pretty concerned about that. Don’t worry; Metallica is Metallica. Somebody covering our song isn’t going to change us.”
Later then, James Hetfield added about The Blacklist: “We’re still explorers. A project like the Blacklist is proof of that. Someone once told me: ‘The rear-view mirror is smaller than the windshield for a reason.’”
