Metallica's Robert Trujillo: "There's no shortage of ideas when we're writing songs"


Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo was recently interviewed by PX TV, you can read some excerpts below.

About how Metallica manages to maintain such a high energy live with its live performances: "I think what happens is when we put the instruments on, we actually feel… I mean, I don't know if 'younger' is the right word; I mean, we're all… I'm 50, and I'm the young guy in the band, okay? But, you know, there's no shortage of ideas when we're writing songs. I think the problem is having too much, you know what I mean?"

About how proud he feels to be a Latino member of Metallica, the biggest rock band of our generation: "I'm very proud. And I always say this: there's passion all over the world. There is. There's passion in Scandinavia, there's passion in Asia. There's passion in Europe. We just came from Europe. It's so incredible and beautiful. And I tell you, when I go down to Mexico, or even further south, like when you get down to Argentina and Brazil, it's just fueled with passion."
