Ulrich hopes that The band will know when the time has come to finish their career, and that they are gonna bow out “graciously and respectfully.”
He lately mentioned that the band had the mental capability to proceed for 100 years, though he was much less certain of their physical talents.Download Our App
Now he has added that concerns about having the ability to perform apply particularly to drummers.
Ulrich tells CBC Radio: “Mentally, creatively, spiritually, aesthetically, we are fantastic. Physically, clearly, is the big question.
“I used to be at Desert Trip and there these six acts on. They are all of their 70s. There was solely one of many six acts that had the OG drummer – the other 5 had a drummer of their 20s and 30s. So that ought to tell you something, right?”
Lars Ulrich continues: “Whether or not we are able to do the Fight Fires and the Batterys and the Master Of Puppets in our mid-60s and early 70s remains to be seen.
“There is a second half to that – we could possibly still play them, however whether or not we are able to bring the weight, the energy, the attitude these songs deserve, I don’t know.
“Hopefully we will have enough clarity to tell if it is not working, to walk away from it graciously and respectfully.
