“I like Shine on your mad diamond because there’s a riff in this song, but it’s so sideways and so far back,” Hammett commented. “When you listen, it’s actually blues.
“It’s a creepy blues progression but it doesn’t sound like it, and that in itself is a real accomplishment. So I really think this song is just amazing. With the opening, that weird opening chord, Shine On You Crazy Diamond is just epic, and there’s so much I love about it.
“Everybody’s talking about Comfortably Numb and that guitar solo, and yeah, the guitar solo is absolutely amazing with the delay and the chorus. But my favorite thing is when it screws up a note and then turns it into open ground during the solo. I know everyone knows what I’m talking about! But I love that David left it. I love that.

Because in the meantime, Hammet thought pink floyd was on stage. In conclusion, the guitarist admitted that David Gilmour “is underrated”.
“David’s sound is amazing. During the Peter Green tribute show, David came down and played Oh Well Part 2, and when he started playing and soloing with the band that Mick Fleetwood had put together for that event, all of a sudden Pink Floyd was in the room.
“Or, it was like Pink Floyd was in the room. It was crazy ! Everyone in the room was blown away and we all looked at each other like, ‘Wow, this is amazing and a real moment!’
“I love how Gilmour’s playing is underrated because it’s underrated. If anything, I could be more low key, but sometimes I regurgitate a ton of notes. I can’t m to stop it, that’s who I am! But David is very, very low key and that in itself is a real, real beauty to behold.
Last April, Kirk Hammett revealed James Hetfield’s reaction to his debut release. According to Hammett, Hetfield supported him in carrying out a side project.
“Usually when there’s an album release, it’s the four of us. We all support each other,” Hetfield says. “We all support each other because it’s kind of a nerve-wracking emotional and mental thing. Usually during this time we meet to talk about all sorts of insecurities or whatever.
“But now that I’ve released a solo album, I’m the guy who carries all the burden of it all. I said to james, ‘That’s weird. I have an album release and usually I have you three other guys. But that’s just me and it makes me feel uncomfortable and nervous. And james had only one response: “This is a growing and learning experience for you, bro.” And I’m like, ‘Thank you for saying that because I didn’t see it that way.'”
