Metallica Slams Bush - June 21, 2003
Thanks to: Hotpress.Com
In a candid, and often entertaining question and answer session with readers of Irelands Hot Press magazine, Metallica have claimed reports of the US military using their song "Enter Sandman" as a torture method for Iraqi prisoners as a "tragedy". Answering questions asked of them by their Irish fanbase Metallica responded by saying " That, to me is a very sad thing. It's a God-damn shame. It's a serious misuse of our music".
In offering his opinion of George Bush, band member Kirk Hammett was direct and unfaltering in his view, "He won this election by proxy. I don't think he was qualified in the beginning to led this country and I don't think he is qualified now. In my opinion heÂ¹s got a lot of blood on his hands".
Thoughts on this?
I'll stay opinionless on this one for now, but I think if you read my signature you can easily see how I feel about things as they are.
