James Hetfield fortæller om "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly"

"The Good, The Bad and The Ugly"

Metallica har siden 1983 brugt "The Ecstasy of Gold" fra spaghetti western filmen "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly", som intro før bandet gik på scenen.

På Mill Valley Film Festivalen fortæller James Hetfield, at bandets første manager præsenterede bandet for ideen og spillede nummeret for bandet:

"'... and that was one of the coolest things that our first manager ever did. [Laughs] That was pretty much the only thing that we kept from him, advice-wise."

Om filmen fortæller James:

"What I liked about the movie, for me, was that each one of [the characters] had their own survival technique — how they navigated the desert, the war, just struggling through life… they all had their own way of doing their thing. And, you know, Clint was the coolest."
