It’s the most unlikely collaboration in years—until you hear it, and it suddenly makes perfect sense. GQ spoke with the notoriously prickly Reed and notoriously gabby Lars Ulrich about teaming up. The full interview is here, but below is a brief flavor of how it went. Coming on Monday to GQ.com: an exclusive interview with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys.
GQ: What were each of your preconceptions of the other before you started working on this project?
Lou Reed: I’ve loved Metallica since I was a kid.
Lars Ulrich: The reason we formed was to fulfill Lou’s vision of one day working with us. I think we go back not only many years; we go back many lives, many planets, many solar systems.
