Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett was recently interviewed by The Rock’s Jay and Dunc. Hammett talked about Tool’s upcoming album, guitar and releasing his first beer.
“Congratulations on releasing your first beer. How does that work out for you? Do you just get it for pre-show, or are you, like, ‘I’m gonna be drinking my own beer’?”
“We don’t really drink before a show. That’s, like, asking for real trouble. There was a time when we used to drink quite a lot before we went onstage, but you know, responsibility and professionalism have become a priority here in Metallica land.
So when it comes to stuff like that, we’re pretty responsible and boring these days. But having said that, there’s always a refrigerator filled with the Enter Night beer at every one of our shows that people can just walk up and help themselves with.
I personally stopped drinking four years ago, but you know, I know that Enter Night is a good beer because I smelled it.”
“You guys have now released 10 albums. Do you have any advice for Tool on how they can finally finish their fucking next album?”
“Well, I talked to Adam Jones quite a bit, you know, and the last thing I knew, he was dealing with artwork, so that’s great. If they’re finishing the artwork, it must be close.”
