Metallica: The Rise of an Egotist
Steffan Chirazi, Kerrang!, 8 August 1992
METALLICA started out as renegade Thrash bandits, but they've sold almost 10 million copies of their self-titled fifth album. They are now touring American stadiums with Guns N' Roses and the problems are enormous. Who should get top billing on the T-shirts?Whose name should head the backstage laminates? Egos are rampant, and LARS ULRICH admits that he has the biggest ego of all. Damn, he's so rock 'n' roll, he'll even lig with Slaughter! Can STEFFAN CHIRAZI smell a sell-out?
