Lou Reeds lyrics reduce Metallica to tears

Metallica guitarists Kirk Hammett and James Hetfield have revealed to Contact Music that Lou Reed’s lyrics for the song ‘Junior Dad’ brought them both to tears.

Kirk Hammett stated: “I had just lost my father literally three or four weeks previous. I had to run out of the control room, and I found myself standing in the kitchen, sobbing away.” He added: “James came into the kitchen in the same condition – he was sobbing, too. It was insane. Lou managed to take out both guitar players in Metallica in one fell swoop, with his amazing poetic lyrics.”

Lou Reed and Metallica will release their collaboration ‘Lulu’ on 31st October.
