Drummer Lars Ulrich admitted to us a while back that Metallica credits its success to doing things on its own terms: “Metallica, over the years, we kind of float around in our own little bubble. We do things our way, and sometimes we take some chances, and sometimes we play it safe and sometimes we’re on the frontlines and sometimes, y’know, we’re on the second wave or whatever. But we kind of do it, y’know, in our own little bubble.”
