In an interview earlier this year with Guitar World Kelliher paid tribute to Metallica as they celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Black Album. He recalled touring with the metal giants on a series of dates supporting their 2008 album, Death Magnetic, and shared insight into their grueling work ethic.
â€œThey really work for it,â€ he said. â€œThey had a mobile practice room, like a shipping container, that went everywhere with them. And every day they would open it up three hours before the gig with Pro Tools set up and everything mic'd up.
â€œIâ€™m not kidding, they would play for three fucking hours before they played on stage for another two fucking hours. I think it was called the 'Tuning and Attitude' room. Theyâ€™d be playing different songs every night so theyâ€™d be jamming through different setlists while we were sitting around drinking beer and picking our noses!â€
