James Hetfield on the future of Metallica

“I don’t know what’s going to happen next”

That’s the quote from Metallica frontman James Hetfield when asked by rock website Blabbermouth about the future of the band.

James was promoting his car exhibition at the Peterson Automotive Museum in L.A.  His first public appearance following a return to rehab late last year.

“That’s a great question,” Hetfield said, “We don’t know. Right now, I’m sitting in Peterson Museum and I don’t know what’s going to happen next. That’s the beauty of this. We’ll sit down and figure out what works best for us. Whatever is coming up, we don’t know.” He added: “And we kind of thrive off of the fear of the unknown, a bit, and being scared just enough to feel alive.”

At least that sounds positive.
