Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett was recently interviewed by The Rockâ€™s Jay and Dunc. Hammett talked about Toolâ€™s upcoming album, guitar and releasing his first beer.
â€œCongratulations on releasing your first beer. How does that work out for you? Do you just get it for pre-show, or are you, like, â€˜Iâ€™m gonna be drinking my own beerâ€™?â€
â€œWe donâ€™t really drink before a show. Thatâ€™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, weâ€™re pretty responsible and boring these days. But having said that, thereâ€™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.â€
â€œYou guys have now released 10 albums. Do you have any advice for Tool on how they can finally finish their fucking next album?â€
â€œWell, I talked to Adam Jones quite a bit, you know, and the last thing I knew, he was dealing with artwork, so thatâ€™s great. If theyâ€™re finishing the artwork, it must be close.â€
