In a recent article from the Denver Post about Metallica's importance in today's metal, Kirk Hammet, Metallica's guitarist, has this take on "outdated" bands:
"You look at Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, and it's a trip to see bands that were big influences on us and not relevant anymore."
And all those bands influenced Metallica?
"Well," he pondered carefully, "all of them except for Bon Jovi."
