What Do You Get If You Blend Metallica And Lou Reed?

You don’t need to guess the answer to this question – the Metallica guys and Lou are releasing an album of their collaboration. From the Metallica site:

A few months ago our own Kirk Hammett hinted at a new Metallica project that’s “not really 100 percent a Metallica record.” While Kirk may have jumped the gun a little (and has since been properly punished with a series of push-ups!), we are more than proud to announce that we have just completed recording a full length album that is a collaboration with none other than the legendary Lou Reed.

Ever since we had the pleasure of performing with Lou at the 25th Anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at Madison Square Garden in October of 2009, we have been kicking around the idea of making a record together. Some of you astute Bay Area residents may have picked up news of recent Lou Reed sightings in the greater San Francisco area and we have indeed been working at our home studio at HQ on and off over the last few months. In what would be lightning speed for a Metallica related project, we recorded ten songs during this time and while at this moment we’re not exactly sure when you’ll hear it, we’re beyond excited to share with you that the recording sessions wrapped up last week…

    Metallica’s drummer is a gay midget. Not a very talented drummer either…….

    Here’s some trivia//// he sits on phone books so he can see over the drum kit.
    His boyfriend props him up on phone books for his nightly drilling.

      I think Lars Ulrich is kind of a dick for sure. But to say he “not a very talented drummer” is sheer stupidity and prejudice. Whether he’s gay or not is irrelevant. 

      You’re an idiot…

    Anything like Metallica is better than the Jungle Monkey R&B crap on the rest of the Airwaves.

    Lou Reed talents seem to lie more in his lyrical talents rather than his voice or musicianship. A Metallica- Lou Reed rendition of “Sweet Jane” might be cool though.
    Then again, the combination might sound more like musical-mud, but I’ll give a listen at least once…

    Wow! Some of these comments against Metallica are sheer, utter, belligerent statements. It’s one thing to have an opinion, it’s another to know wtf you’re talking about before opening your pie-hole.
