    Howard had a long, boring interview with Metallica today complete with Howard declaring his love for "Master Of Puppets". Begs the question who are the bigger sell outs.

    Metallica Performs Live. 09/26/16. 8:55am
    After the break they played a prank call the guys made to a woman asking for directions to the zoo and then they crash into the zoo releasing wild animals. They also played Led Zeppelin's ''The Rain Song'' and A Manly Tip from Richard Christy's dad. Then they played Leslie West & Mountain performing ''Crossroads.''
    Howard came back and said he has the guys from Metallica in the studio. He said look what's going on there. Howard asked if it's too early for them. James said he hasn't gone to bed yet. Howard asked how this all works. He said it seems like a tremendous effort. He said they must have 50 people helping.

    Howard asked if they remember the old days when they just loaded a van and went to play. James said it's like 10 vans now. Howard asked about the Metallica logos on the amps. Howard said it must be a look. James said they try not to have a look which gives them a look. Howard said even the coffee cups have a look. He said even when they set up in there they have a special plate for Lars' pancakes. Howard asked what the story is on that. Lars said a couple of years ago he switched some eating habits of his. He said a significant part of his diet are these pancakes. He said it's oats, stevia and some other things. Howard said it seems like Metallica isn't having that much fun. Lars said try doing this at 52. Howard said it does take more energy. Howard said it must be a fucking pain in the ass. James said it is. Howard said it must be fun too though. James said it's all of those things.

    Howard asked what time they went to bed. one of the guys said 3. Lars said he was in bed at 1. Lars said one of the things that isn't fun is the stretching before the show. He said he can't do what they're about to do without that. He said he has to do that before a show. He said it endangers tomorrow's performance at Webster Hall. He said he might start cramping. Howard asked if it's because he hits so hard. Lars said it's the physicality of it. He said it has to be respected. Howard asked what they think of the Stones playing at 70. Kirk said he's surprised they still want to do it. Howard said Jagger and Richards can't stand each other and they talk shit about each other. James said that's part of the magic. He said you love each other and hate each other. He said they must care for each other.

    Howard asked if they don't see each other when they're not touring. James said they don't hang out. Howard asked about how they had like 900 new songs for this new album. James said he had about 800 and Kirk had about 500. Howard asked where they put their songs. Kirk said he made the mistake of putting his riffs on his iPhone. Howard asked where they go to work on the songs. LArs said they have a place they call HQ that they work at. He said it's built on the Grateful Dead format. Howard asked if it's owned by them. Lars said they have their fan club there and all of their storage and rehearsal area. Howard asked if it's an expensive area. Lars said it has gotten more and more expensive.

    Howard asked if they all live near there. James said he's maybe 1200 miles from there in Colorado. Kirk said he's about 4000 miles. Lars said he's about 15 minutes.

    Howard asked about walking into HQ to start a new album and what happens when Kirk loses his 500 song ideas. Kirk said he put it on his phone and he didn't want to forget it. He said he lost it all. Howard asked what they say to Kirk when he does that. James said he just hands him one of his riffs. Howard asked if they care about who writes what. James said he and Lars have been driving this thing and they put the songs together. He said he has so many riffs and so many ideas. He said LArs is a good editor. He said they have a great level of trust. He said they're all skeptics.

    Howard asked the guys about doing cover versions and how they did covers of obscure songs. Lars said they just played the songs and didn't tell anyone they weren't their songs. Lars said when they were in L.A. in 81 or 82 that's what they were doing. Howard said he looked up some of the songs and played one that they covered. Howard asked what it is about covers and if they do it because they don't have confidence on their own writing. James said that's it. He said they were paying homage to the bands that inspired them. He said when they had to write their demo they didn't have any of their own stuff. James said they had long, drawn out epics that they wrote and they didn't have the hits because they were covers.

    Howard asked who the radio guys were that played their stuff. Lars said that they had a station in L.A. that played their stuff. Howard said he has a friend who was at KROQ and they were trying to decide if they should play their stuff. Howard said they had a long, drawn out argument about it. Howard said Kevin Weatherly said they were going to play it and they eventually came around. Lars said they did play some of the hits along the way. James said the college radio stations did it too. Howard said they have to go out and play it live to make it. James said you have to. He said you can't make it if you don't. He said some do but most don't. James said they have a following that loves them and they don't fake it. He said they love what they do too.

    Howard asked if James has the most tattoos on him in the band. James laughed. Howard asked if he knows what they all are. James said he does forget them sometimes. He said he went to a friend's house and he had a 5 year old who hissed at him when he saw him. He said the kid told him ''get out of here.'' Howard said tattoos aren't that crazy now. James said you need one to get a job now. Howard asked what the ''Riff life'' tattoo means. James said that's what he does. He said it's his life.

    Howard asked if they look at an Adele song and see it as shit. James said if he daughter wants to sing a song with him he's going to do it. He said if he's doing it with his daughter it's cool. Howard asked where he did that cover of the Adele song. James said it was at a benefit show he was at. Howard asked if he listens to the pop songs and hears stuff that turns him on. Kirk said he listens to talk radio now. He said he can't listen to pop.

    Howard asked if James can listen to Justin Bieber. James said that he has to go along with it with his kids. He said there's music he's supposed to hate and his kids love and that's just the way it is.

    Howard said he loves that they put out a new album. Howard asked why they decided to do a new one because they could cruise along with their hits. Kirk said they want to make art. James said they know that route where you play the hits but they don't want that option right now. Kirk said they still have creative ideas that are relevant. He said they want to get them out and make music with them. James said they still haven't made a great record yet. Howard asked if they listen to their old stuff and don't hear a good album. James said absolutely. Robert said some of the older bands run out of ideas and go to outside writers but their thing is they have too many ideas.

    Howard asked about going to HQ and if they just go in and jam and start to play. Lars said they have hundreds of ideas. He said he had an iPod with 1500 ideas on it. He said they did that from jamming. He said they had sound checks and warm up sessions and all of that. James said he listen to that iPod for a whole summer. He brought it down to about 50 ideas and started jamming on those.

    Howard asked about doing ''Master of Puppets'' and who brought that riff to the session. Lars said he thinks that was James. James didn't remember but he said okay to that. He said as far as that stuff goes he doesn't think it matters that much. He said it was a contribution to what it was so that's the song.

    Howard said there's a documentary with Jimmy Page talking about Kashmir and how he came up with the riff to that. He thought that was really cool. Lars said they just have it as a collective and back in the 70s they were all to themselves so they remember that stuff. Howard said it's like communism. Lars said it's more like socialism. Howard said someone has to bring life to that riff.

    James said it's so weird to think about how they were the young guys performing ''Master of Puppets'' and now they see little kids in the audience yelling out ''Master!'' during the song. He said it's just like ''What!?'' when he sees that happening.

    Howard said this is a business and they didn't change their sound at all. Lars said they have felt like outsiders and they never felt like a part of the cool kids. He said that they felt like they were living in their own world. Howard asked if they feel accepted now. Lars said he feels like they still hover on the outer fringes. James said they can always find something they hate or that other people hate. He said they wanted to play what they wanted to hear because what they were hearing they hated.

    Howard asked Kirk about pulling the top string off his fret board to make a siren sound. Kirk told Howard about that and said it was an accident and they ended up keeping it.

    Howard said the guys are going to do ''Master of Puppets'' now. The guys got right into the song. After the song Howard said they are something else. Howard said they really are that good. Howard said it looks exhausting for LArs. Lars said it's jumping in the deep end at 8 in the morning so it is like ''Woo.'' Robin said he has to get ready and keep it together like the lead singer.

    Howard said the speed at which they play is amazing. Howard asked if they have to rehears it. Kirk said they do it once or twice just to say they can do it. Howard said Robert is playing bass so fast and hard. He said it can't be an easy song to cover. Robert said he has to review the songs they're going to do because your mind can play tricks on you.

    Howard said when they play lead together it's like the Allman Brothers. He said they're harmonizing and doing a dual lead. Kirk said Thin Lizzy did it too. Howard said there is no more fun than watching them do what they do. Kirk said when they fuck something up the audience will pick up on it. He said they'll stop a song midway through it. Robert said in Phantom Lord they were in 3 different tunings. He said they do notice that stuff.

    Howard asked if the guys think they get enough credit as musicians. Howard asked if the rock industry honors them. James said it's not that important to him. He said he thinks they are so-so as musicians but something extra happens when they get together. Howard said it looks incredibly difficult to do what he does. Howard said it has to be hard at that pace. Kirk said he knows where he's at and if he's good with his instrument then he feels pretty secure. Howard asked about their instruments from ESP. Kirk said they'll make anything they want. He said they use certain amps and pick ups to get the sound they get. He said they've been honing it over the years.

    Howard gave them a plug for their new album ''Hardwired...To Self-Destruct'' which is coming out November 18th.

    Howard said one of his favorite songs is ''Sad But True.'' Howard asked if they have to rehears that one too. Lars said they play some of the songs just to warm up. He said they can come back to them just playing them. He said they have a tendency to do better when they're with Howard or with some people around. He said they're not one of those bands that rehearses a lot or over prepares.

    Howard asked if they remember doing the song ''Sad but True.'' Lars said that was one of the best ideas James had that summer. He said now they have 1500 ideas and back then it was maybe 50. Howard asked about coming up with the riff for that song and if it's true that the lyrics were inspired by the movie ''Magic.'' James said that sounds cool but he doesn't know. He said it might have. Howard asked if he's on to something. LArs said he's never heard that. James said ''Sad but True'' is a duality. He said each one of us has a dark side and a light side so there's this duality. Howard asked if he came up with that and this riff. James said the Puss Head skull thing came after the song. He said he was an artist who did a lot of their artwork.

    Howard asked if ''Sad but True'' was done to do a shorter song. LArs said their album had a lot of longer songs and they came up with that to do something shorter. He said the longer songs were tough to do in concert. Howard asked how long it takes to write a song like that. Lars said that they took maybe 2 or 3 months to write that album. He said that ''Sad but True'' came pretty quick. He said some of the songs came really quickly to them and that might be why they've stood the test of time.

    Howard asked if they ever hear a song and know it's going to be a hit. Lars said the riff for ''Sad but True'' was so great they couldn't wait to do it. He said the lyrics come later.

    Howard asked if James hears songs in his head in the shower or something like that. James said he might even come up with something in the car on his way to HQ. He said he might drive and hum something and it comes to him in. Howard said he thinks driving has something to do with it. James said absolutely. He said you're not over thinking things. He said you just let it happen.

    Howard said it's an amazing process but it must be horrible too. Lars said that it's different. He said they have a methodical way of working. He said sometimes they have a song with 3 or 4 parts in it and they may take some of the parts and mix them with other songs. He said it really is like a puzzle. Howard said he hears that in their songs sometimes.

    Howard had the guys perform their next song ''Sad but True.'' After the song Howard asked what the fuck that was. Howard said they're like an army. He said that's how tight they are. Howard said it looks like they're having a great time. James said he's looking at the studio thinking how blessed they are to still be doing this. Kirk said they're all smiling. Howard said it's almost like sex. Howard said they move together and play together and it's just remarkable to watch. Robin said there are just a few of them there that they're playing for like they're in a stadium. Howard said that's the only way he'll see a band. Lars said they'll show up too.

    Howard asked Robert about his son who plays bass too. Robert said he hears his son jamming with James. James said the kid has the bug. Howard said you get it and you play every minute. James said there is an obsessive part to it. He said you just want to get good. Howard said you want to have other people teach you shit too. James said Robert's son, Ty, is doing that. He said that you have to interact and learn to play. He said you can get stale if you don't.

    Howard said at 12 he had the bug but it was for masturbation. James said he wasn't alone in that. Kirk said he used to bring the guitar in the bathroom with him. He said he used to read but then he brought the guitar in. He said you have to be very dedicated.

    Howard said he thinks that musicians are good at math. Kirk said he flunked math. He said you have to have an ear for pitch and keys and things like that. He said you have to have your technique down.

    Lars said they used to write really crazy songs and people would transcribe things for them. He said people would ask questions about the written music and he had no idea what they were even talking about.

    Howard said Lars puts together the set list 30 minutes before a show. Howard said he doesn't get how he can do that. Lars said on the last tour they played about 200 shows and they had 50 or 60 songs they could play at a moment's notice. He said they will meet about 30 minutes before the show and run through some of the songs.

    Howard said they did a charity show on Saturday. He asked about Rihanna showing up late and throwing off the flow of things. Howard said they must show up on time. Lars said they show up early. Kirk said they're there 3-4 hours before. He said they eat and then warm up and it takes time. Howard asked what they make of Rihanna. Kirk said they all have a different ritual. Maybe she shows up late to every show. Howard said they're legends and you can't do that. Lars said they are 35 years into it and they have figured things out about how to push each other's buttons and things like that.

    James said there are people who can tell her she's late. James said he was watching Brian Wilson by the time she showed up. Howard asked if they get upset. Lars said he watched her do her thing and it was pretty good. He said he thought it was pretty cool. Howard asked what they think about these people who have backing vocals and things like that. Kirk said it's cheating and it's like acting. James said that he gets it that they dance and get out of breath.

    Howard said they didn't want to dance around to please the crowd. James said they're not clowns. He said the music moves them.

    Howard gave the guys another plug for their new album ''Hardwired...To Self-Destruct'' and said they're going to perform a new song. Howard said this is their first new album since 2008. Lars said he thinks they spend less total time working on this one than anything else in the past. He said they did it all in the same place so they could spend time with their families.

    Howard asked if they have rehearsed this song. James said they have. Howard asked how many times they've performed it live. Lars said just once. Howard asked how many times they rehearsed it. Lars said they did it in rehearsal but they had never played it as a band before. Howard told the guys not to fuck it up. Lars said if they do they'll just stop and start it over.

    Lars said this was the last song they wrote for the new album. He said they wrote it in May or June. Lars said they did it in about a week just 2 months ago. Howard said they needed something and this is the song that was missing. Howard had the guys get into the new song ''Hardwired.'' They had to stop when Lars wasn't able to hear the other guys. They started again after that.

    After the song Howard said he has to get some of those pancakes. Howard said no mistakes that he heard. Lars gave Howard one of his pancakes. Howard said they're cold. James said they're just boys in men's bodies. Howard asked if their kids think they're the coolest. James said he's stupid and an idiot to his kids. He said that his kids tell him he's socially retarded.

    Lars said his son just went to college. He said he went to visit him a week ago. Lars was out of breath. James goofed on him about that. Lars said he went to pick his son up last year at a school of music and he had never seen him in this role where people jumped on him. He asked him not to walk around campus with him this time. He said he felt like he was embarrassing him so he kept a low profile up there this time. Howard said that's the tough part of being famous with kids. Howard said you want that spotlight but you have to put it aside for the kids. James said it's tough for the kids. He said that they have that radar when people are trying to take your picture or something. He said the people want something from you. He said he can relate to Lars' boy that he wants his own life. He said Lars came from a dad who was a tennis star and he did his own thing and made it in a different way. Lars said his son was having fun by the time it was coming to an end.

    Howard asked what the guys are going to do tonight. He asked if they'll be watching the debates. Lars said he's going to watch them. Howard asked if the guys all vote. Kirk said they definitely do. James asked who the third option is. Kirk asked about a write in vote. Robin said he can still do that. Howard asked if Lars can vote legally. He asked if he's from another planet. Lars said he is from another world so he can't vote.

    Howard asked what they are doing. Lars said they will lay low today. He said they have a lot to do tomorrow. Howard said he let Richard sit in even thoguh he didn't lick Gary's penis. Richard said he's going to cry thinking about this. He said their music means so much to him. He said he's going to cry. Howard said he looks like a Make a Wish kid or something. Richard said he wanted to rip his face off in the studio. Howard said Richard went to a Metallica show with him once and he was whipping his head around like he had hair but he had no hair. Richard said he used to.

    Howard gave the guys another plug for the album and thanked them for coming in and spending time with them. Howard said he's going to play ''Moth Into Flame'' from the new album and this is a world premier. Howard said there was a time when he couldn't get a world premiere. Howard asked if they have anything they want to tell the fans. Lars laughed. Howard said that says it all.

    Howard asked if they're going to take in some theater there in the city. He asked if they're going to take in theater. James laughed and said he's going to spend time with his wife. Lars said they have 12 hour days coming up. He said they'll be doing Fallon in a few days. He said he was at a bar the other night and he was hanging out singing Loverboy and things like that at 3 in the morning. Howard thanked the boys for coming in and played ''Moth Into Flame'' as they went to break.

    Things like this are why I can never take the "Howard Stern is the greatest interviewer of our generation" people seriously.

    Idk.... but I do know that the OP is the biggest dumbfuck.

    Sellout? How did Metallica sell out exactly? Oh... they didn't play everything as fast as they could.

    Asshole.

    Just don't post any food pictures in this thread. I was reading on another board how you ruined all the Howard hating here by posting food pictures, of course they posted food pictures just to prove their point

    Every Howard interview is almost as long. It's called filler.

    You can still go see Metallica in concert, and they will play their hits.

    Howard refuses to do the show that his fans want
