Wow! Just Wow!

It’s pretty safe to say that anything that Metallica touches turns into pure gold. Sure their road to major legendary success hasn’t been completely smooth, but in the end they are still regarded as one of the greatest heavy metal bands of all time. Recently, they have just released a brand new full-length album titles Hardwired… To Self-Destruct and it’s beautiful! So naturally, as you’d expect, the band is doing all sorts of promotion for the album. One such promotion took place on Jimmy Fallon’s show, and while this all seemed like a harmful fun little skit, well…

James Hetfield says this: “We’re literally afraid to jam with certain people, because we think we’re not worthy enough. We’re not great musicians. Even with those little flutes and stuff I was worried. Kirk was practicing the song on this little recording thing. It’s like, ‘Dude, stop practicing it. Just go have fun. Go screw it up!’ You’ve got to laugh at yourselves. You’ve got to not take yourself so seriously all the time. The Jimmy Fallon thing showed up in our lap, they said, ‘You want to do this?’ We had a blast. Stuff like that is just fun. It lightens your heart and it humbles you as well. It’s fun to give each other permission to screw up. You’re not under a microscope. Sometimes we’re really tight, sometimes we’re really not. Before going onstage, we always remind each other, ‘Hey, mistakes are supposed to happen up here, it makes this gig unique. There’s a freedom to f*** up in Metallica!”

Sad, but endearing!
