Without the iPhone there would be no Metallica - Macenstein

Without the iPhone there would be no Metallica

Well, OK, maybe that’s not quite true – I guess Metallica did “OK” before 2007, but according to the below video interview with James Hetfield (conducted by a cute 17-year old Dutch fan named Cissie), it appears that the iPhone has become a part of Hetfield’s songwriting workflow.

A lot of times, I’ll just see words… that are interesting to me…. and put them in my iPhone…” says James. “Just some words are strong“.

Above: Yeah, well, I guess you don’t get too much stronger than that…

Mmmm right, “Strong”. I’m totally feeling that.

Wow. Well, I don’t know for sure, but it sounds to me like James may be trying to impress a cute 17 year-old Dutch girl – but in all fairness, it is virtually impossible for any artist, actor, or musician to talk about their creative process and not come off sounding a bit pretentious. Anyway, whatever he’s doing seems to be working for him. I wonder if James also keeps notes on his iPhone with new ideas for building bigger fences.

Thanks to faithful Macenstein reader Paul for the link!

    This is the second video I’ve seen where James talks about his iPhone. Ok James, how much is Jobs paying you?

    He didn’t invite her to “the party” after the concert?

    Don’t forget, of course, that Metallica are cunts:

    – they sued kids for downloading their songs. Cunts.
