SVT conducted an interview with METALLICA members James Hetfield (guitar, vocals) and Robert Trujillo (bass) prior to today's (Sunday, July 3) "Big Four" concert (also featuring MEGADETH, SLAYER and ANTHRAX) at Ullevi stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden. A few excerpts follow below.
On wearing the t-shirt of the mysterious Swedish buzz band GHOST during the interview:
Hetfield: "I'm in their fan club. [Laughs] I had no idea what they looked like until I saw the video. I heard the music first and I thought it was very great — very unique, very melodic and a breath of fresh air for metal. It reminded me a bit of '70s kind of rock that I liked as well. So yeah, I love the band."
