METALLICA’s Lars Ulrich – “We’ve Always Tried To Make Ourselves As Accessible As Possible”

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich was a guest on Seattle’s The Men’s Room on KISW 99.FM and spoke about the band staying relatively accessible to the fans.

Ulrich said, “We've always tried to… I think very early on, you kind of make a decision — whether it's conscious or not — about whether you're gonna be, sort of, off limits or whether you're gonna have an open-door policy. And we've always, in Metallica, felt: 'The door's wide open. Come on in. Everybody's welcome.' So whatever we've done, we've always tried to make ourselves as accessible as possible. Whether it's movies like Some Kind Of Monster or having open rehearsals. Every night, before we go on stage, we go into a room backstage and we play for thirty minutes. It's like a tuning room, and that gets broadcast. You can go on the Internet and find whatever link it is and you can see us warm up. So we always have kind of an open-door policy and that's part of… You know, ultimately, to me, Metallica is about connecting — people to each other connecting, people to music connecting, fans to each other, and us connecting to the fans and vice versa and all that, so we try to… we've gotta keep that door open as wide as we can make it."
