There is a really different relationship between two important members of Metallica, James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich. In an interview published over the past few days, James spoke and said good things about Lars. He said, “we both loved and hated each other”.
James Hetfield told a different story about Lars in his last interview with Metal Hammer. Metal Hammer was asked by James last time when he told Lars to fuck himself.
James said on this question that he had been fighting with Lars, 8 months ago and had not spoken for a week. He said:
“We were in the studio and it was like, ‘Hey, I’m the guitar player, I like this guitar part, I wanna play it.’ He’d be like, ‘This part is better,’ and I was like, ‘Since when are you the Riff Police?’ So at that point it was, ‘Okay, I’m done for now, I have to leave.’ But a week later we were talking again.”
In the documentary “Some Kind of Monster”, we watched the tense moments between Lars and James in the deepest way. So, this discussion did not come as a surprise to us.
