Metallica's Ulrich: 'I'm Not Ever Sure We're Metal'
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has recently expressed uncertainty about the band belonging to the metal genre, placing 'Tallica into the rock category.

Discussing the Glasto controversy, he told Metro, "People say it's controversial because we're the first metal band to headline Glastonbury, but I'm not even sure we're 'metal.' Glastonbury's one of the biggest rock festivals in the world and we're one of the biggest rock bands."

In related news, frontman James Hetfield took a jab at rock icons KISS and Scorpions for their repeating farewell tours. Discussing the matter with Kerrang! magazine, James stated that he's definitely not a fan of the whole concept.

"I don't think that's fair to anyone. KISS' farewell tour for the 10th time? Scorpions were done and then they tour? You can't say that and then not do it," he pointed out (via Loudwire). "I don't know what's in store for us. I don't want to go on the history of how other bands have done it. We're unique in our own path and unique in how our path ends."

Metallica recently caught major media attention with Glastonbury 2014 show, both with quality performance and the surrounding controversy. Check out the full round-up here.
