In other words, Metallica will believe it when they see it.
Frontman James Hetfield told the Houston Chronicle:
“I thought we took a long time to make an album, but you know he’s (Axl) late for everything, so it makes total sense.”
“I’ll certainly listen to it [‘Chinese Democracy’. But I haven’t lost sleep waiting for it.”
Fair enough. I think that’s how a lot of us feel. Don’t get your expectations up too high.
Interesting enough, Tom Araya of Slayer was feeling the same way about Metallica’s new release.
