Kirk Hammett responded, “Sorry bro, I was counting while gazing at my new skull ft -skull emoji-”

In a new SiriusXM interview (transcribed by Ultimate-Guitar), Ghost frontman Tobias Forge mentioned how he has the same accountant now as guitarist Kirk Hammett, and how watching ‘A Yr and a Half within the Life of Metallica’ 150 helped him create successful tours, which has led to financial success for the band.
So that you’ve been out with Iron Maiden, worked with Dave Grohl, Guns N’ Roses took you out, Metallica continues to support the band… What did you take from being round these guys?
“A little bit of everything. I mean, most of those bands have in one way or form been mentors from afar.
“Even before I was in the studio recording the first demo, I had seen ‘A Year and a Half in the Life of Metallica,’ you know that film about making the [1991’s] ‘Black Album’ and then touring the ‘Black Album.’ I’ve seen it 50 times, probably; no, 150 times.
“So in my world, in my mind, that was how you record an album, that’s the level. And when you tour an album, that’s 300 shows, easily. And I was looking through like, ‘Live After Death’ with Iron Maiden – looking through all those dates like, ‘This is how you tour America.’
“So they, not only music-inspiration-wise or visually, but they also – I think I learned a lot about tour ethics, like, ‘This is the amout of work you need to put in.’
“And then, later, getting to know them, becoming colleagues and to some extent, friends – they keep inspiring me, you know, telling stories and advising…
“Especially with Iron Maiden. I mean, we work with a lot of same people. With Metallica too, actually, I have the same accountant as Kirk [Hammett]. [Laughs]”
