Lars Ulrich, Howard Stern Discuss Lulu, Closing Track “Junior Dad”

Lars Ulrich phoned in to Howard Stern‘s show today. They discussed in detail the Lou Reed & Metallica collaboration, Lulu.

Howard Stern corrected his earlier misinterpretation of Lulu:

Howard took the opportunity to commend (unlike many critics*) the band’s recent album, “Lulu,” a collaborative effort with Lou Reed–particularly “Junior Dad”, the album’s 20-minute final track: “I started crying. It got me. I loved it–no bullshit!”
Lars laughed that Howard wasn’t the only one: “You should have seen grown men cry out in the studio when we were recording it. I’m telling you, I’ve been with James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett for close to 20 years and I’ve never seen them cry before. It was amazing. It was truly moving.”
*Uncut gave the record a positive review,[34] singling out the album closer “Junior Dad” for praise and calling it “breathtaking” and “astonishing”, a “perfect ending to the most extraordinary, passionate and just plain brilliant record either participant has made for a long while.”
