METALLICA To Offer Fans Unprecedented Look Into Band's Business Affairs

According to Encyclopedia Metallica, the next issue of the METALLICA fan club magazine So What! will feature a long article revealing the details of how METALLICA does business. Subjects will include how much it costs, what it takes, who's involved, how they all work together, and a whole slew of other related topics and issues. It will be the fans' “101 guide to all aspects of what allows METALLICA to tick and how it happens”.

Drummer Lars Ulrich reportedly co-conducted interviews with Cliff Burnstein and Peter Mensch, the band's managers at Q-Prime (neither of whom has ever been interviewed to such an extent) as well as the band's accountants, for the issue. He also demanded that the magazine print a variety of contracts, statements and details, the likes of which they firmly believe “NO other band EVER allows their public to see”.

The next issue of So What! will be printed mid-May and shipped in late-May to all members of the METALLICA fan club.
