Metallica’s Kirk Hammett On Possible Solo Album: “One Of These Days When It Feels Right”

During an interview with Metal Hammer, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett talked about the possibility of recording a solo album at some point. The guitarist says he still has “so much to give Metallica” but he wouldn’t rule out doing a solo effort “when it feels right.”

Hammett said the following:

“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… I still feel I have so much to give Metallica. When that feels more complete, maybe I’ll think about doing that other stuff.”

He continued:

“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!”
