Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has proclaimed Lady Gaga “the quintessential fifth member of this band” after their duet at the Grammys last weekend.
“Her voice, her attitude, her outlook on everything is so awesome,” Lars told Rolling Stone magazine.
“[The performance] was so effortless and organic and she just has the spirit of hard rock and metal flowing through her veins. It comes really easy for her. There’s nothing contrived; she just has this super warm, easy energy.”
Both Metallica and Gaga are currently gearing up to tour separately, but Lars said he hopes the performance will be more than a one-off.
“We already started fast-forwarding to the next chapter when we can do more of this,” he told the magazine.
“It’s not one of those ’20 lawyers, strategists and managers trying to force two people from two different worlds to figure out how to spend four minutes together on a national telecast.’
“Of any of these undertakings, this is about as organic and authentic as there’s ever been one. We’re just getting started.”
