Lars Ulrich Says Some Kind Of Monster May Have Saved The Band


Lars Ulrich has opened up about Metallica's 2004 documentary Some Kind of Monster and says that the movie may have been the only thing that saved the band from disaster. During a recent interview with The Wrap, Ulrich says that the cameras may have kept the band on their best behavior.

"The making of the movie was one of the most extraordinary experiences in my life, precisely because it came at such a vulnerable time. The presence of the cameras helped keep things on track — there was another set of eyes and ears there. When somebody else is in the room, you watch your Ps and Qs a little more. I think it kept the whole thing from derailing," he said.

He adds, "This was the first time we had to talk to each other, get to know each other and work stuff out. There are always things that throw you for a loop. The fact that the music world was a little bewildered by it, and the facts that the movie world sort of embraced it, was not something we would have predicted."
