It's clear that Metallica are no longer the troubled band that they were in their 2004 documentary, 'Some Kind of Monster.' At the time they were reeling from the backlash of their legal drama with Napster, the illegal music download website.
The band were unsure if they could ever recover from the backlash, resulting in a "difficult time." Singer-guitarist James Hetfield did a stint in rehab, there was conflict in the studio while they were recording 'St Anger' and they had to recruit a band therapist. All of this was filmed for 'Some Kind of Monster,' which they now admit to regretting.
"I am aware a lot of other musicians seem to have lived a lot of those moments," Ulrich told the Sydney Herald Sun. "They weren't necessarily stupid enough to film them like we were and share them with the rest of the world."
Ulrich admits that former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher often quotes the film back to him and they laugh about it but the band barely recognise themselves in the film. "If I see a clip of it or think about it it's more like something that happened to someone else," said Ulrich.
