Metallica‘s guitarist Kirk Hammet is apparently “bored” of playing the guitar solo in “Master Of Puppets“, he said in an interview with Total Guitar.

In Hammet’s words:

What I’m going to say people are probably gonna hate, but it drives me nuts having to play that fucking guitar solo in ‘Master of Puppets’ every time. People love that guitar solo and they come to see that. That’s fine. For that part of our career, all those solos are locked in. I don’t view them as solos anymore; they’re parts. I’m freaking bored of it, but it’s exciting for people to hear.
