Metallica frontman James Hetfield spoke in an interview with Metal Hammer and revealed his last fight with drummer Lars Ulrich.
James said that he had been fighting with Lars 8 months ago and had not spoke with 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.
