Metallica Talk Fan Relationship: 'One Minute They're Upset, Then They Love Us More Than Ever'
Metallica bassist Rob Trujillo discussed the band's unique relationship with their fanbase, describing the occasional tensions as a consequence of metal giants' uncompromising attitude toward music. While talking about the currently most prominent Metallica topic - "Through the Never" 3D film, Rob touched on the fans subject. "With Metallica - I always call it the edge-of-your-seat existence. We're always taking on challenges, so we have this relationship with our fans where one minute they're totally upset with us, then the next minute they love us more than they ever have," the bassist told Fox Phoenix. "And that's just because we try things. And this movie is an example of taking a big chance." Trujillo also remembered his first performance as a Metallica bassist, naming it as one of the examples of constantly unpredictable state of affairs among the group's ranks. "My first gig was at St. Quentin State Penitentiary, just to give you an idea of what Metallica does," he said. "That was like - welcome to the world of Metallica, you're playing St. Quentin State Penitentiary, make sure you don't hit a bad note, or else... [laughs]" Apart from a yet-undisclosed major announcement, new album still remains a constantly hot Metallica topic. According to the latest reports, the band will likely kick off the writing process earlier next year.
