Rolling Stone: Why Metallica’s Lars Ulrich Is Obsessed with Rage Against the Machine Right Now
For Lars Ulrich, quarantining during the pandemic has meant spending more time with his wife and kids. Just in the past few days, the drummer shared video of sons Myles and Layne, both home from NYU, playing their fuzzy, noisy instrumental take on the Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby.” Metallica had intended on playing South America this spring and headlining several summer festivals this summer, but they’ve since put those plans on hold until it’s safe to play live again. Their next scheduled date is their own All Within My Hands Helping Hands Concert and Auction in San Francisco, which will take place on September 12th, depending on the state of things. Until then, Ulrich answered our quarantine questions, telling Rolling Stone that he and his family are finding creative ways to pass the time.
