Prepare for more metal Gaga because if Metallica have their way there will be more collaborations with the pop star quicker than you can call the Sandman.
‘As you spend 72 hours with somebody, and there’s this connection and this intimacy, part of it is that maybe you don’t want it to end,’ drummer Lars Ulrich has said following the duo between Gaga and the band at the 2017 Grammy Awards.
‘When these moments work, you always leave them open to reconnection. Obviously, we’re not sitting in a recording studio today writing songs for a record or anything. I think that our weekend together was so seamless and so authentic and such a natural fit that the idea of revisiting this at some point down the road (is a good one).’
And it seems Gaga agrees as Ulrich revealed that as they walked off stage she apparently told the band that ‘this is just too good to leave’.
‘And I said, “I agree with you. It’s just too real”,’ said Ulrich.
Speaking to Vulture following their performance, which was sadly marred by technical difficulties, Ulrich also admitted that the iconc metal band knew that their duet with the Born This Way singer was going to work.
‘It was totally in her wheelhouse… The only question was at what level it was going to work. We did one run-through. The way her and James’ (Hetfield) voices worked, it jelled so well together we all kind of stood there like, “Huh?” It was really f**king next-level.’
At the start of their performance, Metallica lead singer Hetfield’s mic was seemingly dead – leaving inaudible blank gaps while he spouted verses to track Moth Into Flame.
Fortunately Gaga’s mic was in working order, leaving Hetfield to shuffle over to her microphone to continue the performance.
