Metallica’s lead guitarist Kirk Hammett revealed some interesting explanations in his last interview with “The World of Wheeler”
The interviewer asked Kirk Hammett about his biggest regret and he tells their Napster battle. He said:
“If there’s anything thing I regret, I regret that no one else supported us during that Napster time. I don’t even know if you can call it a regret.
Maybe it’s more of a disappointment. I was very disappointed that other musicians who saw our point, they supported us in ways that were less inconvenient to them.
We stuck our necks out there. At the end of the day, I’d like to say what we were doing had some merit – some truth to it. From that point on, everyone who cares has seen the music industry go on this total downward spiral.”
