Guns N’ Roses fans were excited to see Slash and Duff McKagan back to GNR for this year’s live tour. But, Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett is not happy about that.

Kirk Hammett said he finds it unfortunate that Guns N’ Roses have turned into a “nostalgia act”. He talked with LA Times, and said:


“Unfortunately, they’ve turned into somewhat of a nostalgia act, which to me is kind of sad.”

In addition, singer James Hetfield said:

“I don’t want to think we’re trying to stay young by writing new stuff, but it makes us feel relevant. It makes us feel like we’re still progressing.”
