According to Ultimateclassicrock.com, Metallica’s Hammett feels that social networking has not been good for music. The guitarist was interviewed by Brazilian site R7 and made feelings known.
“There haven’t been a lot of really, really great bands that have shown that kind of promise,” he said. “I think it’s a concern. Because of things like iTunes and streaming and social networking, it’s destroyed music. It’s destroyed the motivation to go out there and really make the best record possible. It’s a shame.”
