Billboard: Here's Metallica's Key to Longevity, According to Lars Ulrich
Lars Ulrich gave his thoughts during a wide-ranging interview on Thursday (Sept. 3) with Zane Lowe on Apple Music. "So obviously you know, in all seriousness, that we wear our age proud and yes, we are hitting 40 as a band next year," he explained. "I think for the last few weeks as I've heard myself talk about the state of Metallica, the state of the world, and this next record. Just so much of our energy and our focus is always in the future. Sometimes even too much in the future where I'd say sometimes it feels like you should pay more attention to the present. But the one place we spend the least amount of time is in the past."
