John Bush speaks about his Metallica offer

For most people, it was hard to believe that there was a time when Armored Saint singer John Bush turned down a job offer from rock band Metallica. A lot of people might think that at time he might just look back and think about the mistake he has done.

But as John insists in a recent interview that he has actually very happy about the way things have turned out for him. He said that what people do not understand is that even though Metallica was garnering attention and fame, Armored Saint was becoming popular and doing well. For him to leave all the people he grew up with was not something that sounded appealing to him at that time. Of course, that time they had just one album in their kitty. Who knew that they would be one of the most successful bands in the world?

But even after all the accolades and sales records they have racked up, Bush thinks that the band’s short-lived attempts to take some of the pressure off James Hetfield by searching a full-time singer might have failed.

He went on to say that this is something that always resurfaces in his life, and he gets it very funny. He felt complimented when the band was proposing the ideas to him. But this just was not his destiny to be in Metallica. He would have altered the face of heavy metal, and he does not need that pressure. James is an incredible vocalist. He developed through the years, and he just could not imagine anyone else there.
