February 15, 2017

While appearing on The Late Late Show with James CordenMetallica drummer Lars Ulrich described the aftermath that ensued after their performance with Lady Gaga was unfortunately smitten with technical difficulties that left James Hetfield inaudible for the first half of their song "Moth Into Flame."

Lars described James being "livid" after they returned backstage when the performance was over. “I haven’t seen him like that in 20 years.”

"He’s aged really well and he’s a pretty chill guy, but the first five or 10 minutes in that dressing room was not a lot of fun, but as they say, the show must go on and we fought through it.”
