Metallica: …And Justice for All Interview with David Fricke

36



Renowned journalist David Fricke joined us in Pittsburgh, PA for a lengthy chat about “…And Justice for All.” Our very first feature in Rolling Stone was penned by David and we get into the origins of the nine tracks and cover the making of the first video of our career, “One.” Director Michael Salomon flew in from Seattle to reunite with us for the first time in nearly 30 years to discuss how “One” came together from the concept to final production.

Tune in to your local radio station as the interview will air locally as well. Visit Metallica.com for a list of radio stations.

  • 28:20 Holy fuck could Kirk's disdain for Lars' bullshit be anymore obvious? At least James admitted they were taking their anger out on Jason but Lars just piles on the lies….

  • Even on the audition tapes Jason played his ass off. It may seem blasphemous to say but he made some of the bass lines pop more than Cliff because it cut through everything because he used a pick. He may not be as creative as Cliff or even as proficient but he KNEW those songs inside out and played his heart out. I don’t know about anyone else but I heard it. Jason deserves respect especially following in the footsteps of a musical giant…

  • This is the problem with current Metallica, they mysteriously do not remember how they wrote those early albums, and that why the new album are not as good.

  • Fricke is a phony. Make no mistake, he was listening to U2 and Flock of Seagulls when Metallica was making their early records. In 1988 Fricke was gushing over Frankie goes to Hollywood and The Traveling Wilburys.

  • Me and my friend woke up early and bought Justice our CDs on day #1. We were so happy!

  • One was the first Metallica song I ever heard – I saw the full-length video at about 11 years old. To say it was formative is an understatement. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and hearing – it was mindblowing, like “how the fuck can they be so loud and fast and emotive all at the same damn time?” To me, Bon Jovi and ACDC was heavy. Metallica was a mind-expanding gateway drug.

  • Rob must feel like the new girlfriend listening to her boyfriend talk about the good old days with his exes.

  • Its weird listening to this album I always think it flows great and don't get bored or mired in the compositions… Maybe its just not fun for them to play but its fun to listen to.

  • Even though I suspect James can be a massive prick behind closed doors, he comes across as a charming/charismatic guy in interviews

  • I thought Kirk said “how pathetic was that?” reacting to Jason Newsteads quote. Thought it was shot at him from nowhere. Now I see he said “prophetic”. Makes sense

  • Jason has proved himself before .. in .. and after Metallica … in Metallica most at live performance … which Metallica from the beginning is all about!

  • Wow what a happy looking band, they all seem like they love working with each other…NOT!!!

    I think all their faces say what there words don’t.

    Meanwhile, Jason kept his awesomeness, youthfulness, and spirit intact by leaving when he did. At the end the joke was on them, their bullying stripped them from the joy of being and having a band. What a lot of sour grapes.

  • Can someone edit Lars out of this so we can watch it in 6 minutes instead of 26?

  • The sombrero cartoons. I just did one like that and my lady friend loved it.

  • Why does rob even speak like he knows anything about when he wasnt there. He is just a bass cover expert at this point to everything Cliff and Jason did

  • It's sad to see Kirk being treated like an outsider and not given the credit he deserves after all this time. If i was in his shoes i would've left the band long time ago.

  • there was a lot more sonic space on black album. on the other albums it sounded like everything was kinda crammed together and a lot missing in terms of frequencies getting lost in the mix drowned out. MOP and AJA a great albums and songs musically but production wise not so much. to my ears, great songs will always win over production then when you get that double whammy of both great then you get your black albums and nirvana neverminds, dark side of moon etc..

  • You guys downplay this album and you shouldn't. You listened to the wrong folks and should have stayed the course.

  • Those Lars' haters never listened to this album, I'd say

    Reply
  • i'm sick and tired of people whining about Jason. Go listen to his band or whatever!

  • Sad to hear Hetfield talk about the direction of the band that he and Lars led the band in, like Kirk was just along for the ride. Especially considering how Lars is widely regarded as a shitty drummer (and post Black album, a shitty band as well).
