“I don't think the world needs any walls. I think we need to bring people together,” Ulrich said to the Las Estrellas network.
He continues to address being an immigrant born in Denmark and raised in the U.S.: “Being one Danish guy, being asked an opinion, I don't think any walls are necessary, and I think that, increasingly, as far as Metallica traveling all over this beautiful planet, we break down barriers with music.”
He added: “Metallica travels all over the world, and through music we try to bring people together.
