Metallica lead guitarist Kirk Hammett is sick of playing the “Master of Puppets” solo.
The song experienced renewed popularity thanks to the show “Stranger Things” and Hammett has had enough.
In a new interview, he said, “What I’m going to say people are probably gonna hate, but it drives me nuts having to play that f*cking guitar solo in ‘Master of Puppets’ every time. People love that guitar solo and they come to see that. That’s fine. For that part of our career, all those solos are locked in. I don’t view them as solos anymore; they’re parts. I’m freaking bored of it, but it’s exciting for people to hear.”
