Rob Trujillo: 'James Hetfield's Throwaway Riff Will be Another Band's Greatest'
Metallica bassist Rob Trujillo recently praised frontman James Hetfield's riff-writing skills, naming copious amounts of available riffs as somewhat of a problem when it comes to new record. "Our - if you want to call it a problem is [that] we've got so many ideas and so many riffs and that's why if you listen to some of these albums there's so much going on, cause we've gotta put them in a song," Trujillo told Hitz.fm prior to band's first ever Malaysia performance last Wednesday (August 21). "I mean James Hetfield - his throwaway riff will be another band's greatest song [or] riff, so we're blessed in that way," he added. "And we have a lot of fun doing what we do." The bassist also reached the subject of advice he has for younger generations, naming versatility and open-minded approach to music as some of the key factors. "I believe that the younger generation - if they embrace everything from genuine punk rock to thrash - blues bands, soul music, funk music, James Brown. You can listen to Slayer and James Brown, that's what I do. I love both and that's what it's all about. Play with your fingers, play with a pick, enjoy, have fun doing it." Metallica is hoping to enter studio in 2014 and have the new album out in 2015. The four-piece is currently giving their primary focus to the upcoming "Through the Never" 3D movie IMAX theaters premiere scheduled for September 27.
