As many of you may already know, Metallica's performance at the Grammy's this past weekend was not exactly a shining moment for them, as front man James Hetfield's mic was not properly working. You couldn't really hear him at all during the performance except for when Lady Gaga would share her mic with him. That said, drummer Lars Ulrich has come forward to explain how Hetfield reacted to all this.
In an interview with James Corden on The Late Late Show (which can be watched above), Ulrich goes into detail about what Hetfield did afterward, saying:
“I haven’t seen him like that in 20 years. He was livid. I mean, 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.”
I can only imagine what that scene must have looked like. An angry James Hetfield is probably a scary thing to be around. That said, I can't exactly say I blame him considering that performing at the Grammys is one of the biggest deals in the music business today. When you have technical difficulties like that at such a major event and they ruin the performance in a noticeable way, it's pretty difficult to not get into a bad mood.
