This past Monday (May 11) was the 10th annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit, where Ozzy Osbourne was honored by Metallica, Slash and more. In addition to covering the once-in-a-lifetime show, Loudwire was on the red carpet of the event and we were able to speak with Metallica's Kirk Hammett for a very brief interview. Check out his thoughts on Ozzy, musical inspirations and the next Metallica album below:
Last night (May 12), the 10th Annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert was held at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. Black Sabbath legend Ozzy Osbourne and Village Studios owner / CEO Jeff Greenberg were the night's honorees, but Metallica were also an important part of the show, performing a four-song set of classic covers.
We've got a big update on Metallica's next album. In a new interview, guitarist Kirk Hammett shared that this September, the thrash legends will "buckle down" and begin cranking out a brand new record.
Metallica have played nearly everywhere in the world. Last year they played on all seven continents, including Antarctica. But one place they haven't played is the legendary Glastonbury Festival in England. That will change next month.
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich as a pitchman? It's true. While Ulrich and Metallica have been very careful with what they put their stamp on over the years, the drummer has signed on to promote a pair of Danish beers.
He was born in Denmark and grew up with a tennis background, but Metallica's Lars Ulrich made a baseball reference when talking about the progress of a new studio album. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Ulrich says, "Right now, we're in the fourth inning."
The South American leg of Metallica's 'By Request' tour is complete, and now the band has released several videos from the shows. The latest video (watch above) is from the second Buenos Aires, Argentina, concert on March 30.
Music is a passion for the members of Metallica, but it's not their only passion. Guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Rob Trujillo have also found enjoyment riding waves, and their love of surfing has led them to being named the keynote speakers at the upcoming Surf Summit 17.
Metallica have unveiled their contribution to the upcoming Ronnie James Dio tribute album 'This is Your Life' -- and it's a stunning, nine-minute long medley featuring four songs from the singer's time in Rainbow.
