Tonight’s artists were praised by Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich as being an inspiration of how to stay in the music industry for the “long game” Think you can guess the stars he is looking to as inspiration??

Just this week Lars set down with Alternative Nation to talk about the band. He told them how Metallica plans their tour date in two week stints and then gives them self a break to recharge.  He also said how Metallica, inspired by the likes of Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones and Neil Young are planning to perform for a long time to come. He adds how the desire for longevity causes them to watch out for their health both mental and physical.

Here is one of his inspirations with today's featured song.
