Metallica guys are not 20 years old anymore and they have a very different life now. No one can judge them for choosing their own way.
Speaking to the Guardian, drummer Lars Ulrich said:
"I was thinking the other day about how everyone expects us to continue to release albums that define the genre, to 'save' metal. And that's a lot of fucking pressure, really.
“Why hasn't anyone dethroned us yet? We support all the great new metal bands, take them under our wing, but people still want us to carry the whole genre on our backs."
Talking during the band's appearance at last month's Reading and Leeds festivals, Ulrich also admitted that he found it hard to live up to the band's hedonistic past.
"I'm 44 years old, I've got three kids, I flew in a helicopter on Friday,” he said.
“It's a little difficult to revisit the vibe of 20 years ago when you're living in a two-bedroom suite at Claridge's. I live a very different life to how I lived then."
