In a recent questions and answers session, Metallica’s guitarist Kirk Hammett was questioned on which artist enjoyed the most to record with.
“Lou Reed [on 2011’s ‘Lulu’ album], without a doubt. That, for me, was just as special as collaborating with Jimi Hendrix or something.
“I’m a big fan of Lou Reed and to be able to actually collaborate with him was amazing.”
“I think that ‘Lulu’ is some of the best stuff we’ve done. I mean the song ‘Junior Dad’ moves me to tears, and working with Lou Reed was such a cool, unique, and special thing for us.
“Maybe it’s not for everyone. Maybe it’s a challenge for our fans, but for us – Lars, James, Rob, and myself – we loved doing it and it was such a great experience. We look back at it very positively.”
