Metallica Guitarist ‘Bored’ Recording Landmark Album

Metallica's third album, 1986's Master Of Puppets, is regularly cited as the band's finest hour and was recently voted "Greatest Heavy Metal Album of All Time" by the readers of Rolling Stone magazine. But lead guitarist Kirk Hammett told the magazine that he was mostly "bored" during the making of this hard rock landmark. Hammett explained, "At the time, we were just making another album. We had no idea it would have such a range of influence that it went on to have. It was the first time that we could spend time in the studio and work on guitar sounds for a couple of days, really experiment with different sounds and overdubs . . . and I played a lot of poker with (late bassist) Cliff Burton in the studio. We'd just play poker, wait for Lars (Ulrich, drummer) to finish a track -- which would sometimes be days -- and we'd be bored."
