In a recent interview with Kerrang, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich talked about his love for music. He said (via Blabbermouth):
“I never lost that sense of being a fan. I think I have a lot of passion for life and a lot of passion for living.
“If you open your eyes and take it all in – all of this and playing rock shows – it doesn’t douse the fire. There’s a perception that the more famous you get, the less you need that, but why would you stop?
“I don’t consider myself any less turned on by the things that turn me on than I did 10, 20, 30 or 40 years ago.
“I absolutely still have this crazy thing about music and art in general. When something speaks to me, I’ve got to shout about it from every rooftop, to envelop myself in it and share it. Ultimately, when all of this is gone, none of it means anything. The basic human need and function is to connect with other people. Nobody wants to be alone.”
