Apparently, I’m not the only Metallica fan angry at Lou Reed. I haven’t sunk to death threats yet, but plenty of other Metallica fans are really not happy about Lou Reed’s collaboration with the group.
He added: “They haven’t even heard the record yet, and they’re recommending various forms of torture and death.”
“Lulu” seemed an intriguing concept at first, until the first stream of the song “The View” which sparked serious concerns over the integrity and quality of the upcoming collaboration.
But none of that fazes Reed, who has seen more than his fair share of poor sales and negative reviews over the years.
“I don’t have any fans left,” he says. “After Metal Machine Music (1975), they all fled. Who cares? I’m essentially in this for the fun of it.”
Lars Ulrich leapt to the defence of the singer:
“This is something they’ve never heard. Nobody hears rhythms or delivers poetry the way Lou does. It’s not for everyone, but I think it’s a fantastic record.”
Reed called Metallica his “metal blood brothers,” and even hinted that there could be more from Loutallica if he gets his way.
