Even though Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett lost his iPhone a few years back with over 250 riffs on it, he still thinks he has a ton of ideas left over for a future solo album.
He told Metal Hammer, “I have so much material sitting around that’s obviously not Metallica stuff, and that pile gets bigger and bigger. One of these days when it feels right…”
Hammett continues: “I still feel I have so much to give Metallica. When that feels more complete, maybe I’ll think about doing that other stuff. It would not look like a metal album at all. It’ll be something so weird and far-ranging in styles, but cohesive at the same time. I wouldn’t be surprised if all of us did some solo, independent, autonomous sort of thing. I think it’s healthy, and if anything, when you come back to the band you’d come back with more enthusiasm. It’d feel like going on a little camping trip, and it’s always good to come back home to a nice warm bed!”
