In the middle of their M72 World Tour, members of Metallica recently took the time for an interview with Classic Rock. During the chat, when the topic came to James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich voiced his opinion of the singer’s character and artistic style.
The drummer detailed his relationship with Hetfield, saying:
“James is my life partner, one of my best friends. He’s someone I love and respect deeply. Someone who is still capable of blowing my mind with his gift. I’m maybe more in awe of him as a creative force than I’ve ever been.
He’s probably the person I know best on this planet. Often when we’re talking, I’ll know what he’s going to say before he says it. If we’re in a group situation, I’ll know how he’s going to act before he acts. At the same time, he’s also enigmatic to me. He’s all of it and more.“
The bassist Robert Trujillo agrees that the vocalist has a mysterious personality, as his words in the same conversation read:
“I ask myself the question: ‘Who is James to me?’ I feel he’s someone who wants to show strength and be that individual that commandeers the ship, but there’s always going to be a battle with James.
He can be a real, true brother and stand up for you, appreciate you. Then at other times, he can get withdrawn, quiet, and subdued. He can be a bit of a mystery, but in his heart, I think he really strives to be better as a person and as a spiritual being.”
