Alex Lifeson (Rush) Says He Contributed To A New Track With Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine) & Kirk Hammett (Metallica)

It looks like Alex Lifeson (Rush) and Kirk Hammett (Metallica) will be featured on a new track from Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine). Lifeson recently revealed the news during an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock.

Lifeson said the following:

“I think this is a project that [Morello]’s working on with a bunch of different musicians. I don’t really know what the future holds for it, but I really loved doing it.”

“He said, Put whatever you want on it — the more, the merrier. He was going to give it to Kirk Hammett, and Kirk was going to do the same thing.”

He also added:

“Being the contrarian, I did all of [these other styles], not just heavy rock stuff. We were all talking to each other while we were doing it, and we just had such a riot. I sent my stuff in and it went to Kirk then, and he sent his stuff in.”

Lifeson also revealed that he has already listened to an early mix of the track:

“It’s really some fun music. It’s so Tom Morello, his parts. I just smiled the whole way through listening to it. I thought it was really, really cool the way it turned out.”

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!”
