Metallica’s long-term manager Peter Mensch has insisted there is “nobody even close to them” in music today. Look, you can make the point that Stone Roses begat Oasis and Pulp and Blur who begat Radiohead, Coldplay, Muse even. I get plenty of emails saying, ‘We’re the next Metallica,’ and then they send me s****y music.
Q Prime, Mensch’s management company he formed with Cliff Burnstein in the early eighties, has looked after Metallica since 1984 and Mensch believes there are a number of factors why the band are currently enjoying a rich vein of form. They hadn’t put out a record in eight years, it was quality music and then they went and played a bunch of quality shows. 2, there’s no question about the quality of their performance. 3, they were out of the (US) marketplace with a new record for years. But there’s nobody else.” Reflecting upon Metallica’s incredible 2017, Mensch added: “If you’re Metallica and you tour around and killed it at The O2, and broke the house record, and you got more shows to play and more plans and more music to make and James Hetfield writes a riff every time he picks up a guitar, you’ve got to feel pretty good about yourself.
“Absence makes the heart grow fonder,” Mensch explained to Music Week. “It got bigger because I believe they maintained the quality of their product, so music is No. They played Europe and stuff like that, but in America where they just completed an absolutely sold-out stadium tour, they hadn’t played in eight years. “And you survived it, you’re looking around and you’re on the top of your mountain.
There’s nobody else up there, you’re up there with the U2s of the world or whatever. My partner and I have a line: ‘You get the acts, as a manager, you deserve.’ There are acts that could be as smart as Metallica or likeable but don’t respect what we have to say.
