Let's face it, even with James Hetfield's microphone not working for Metallica's performance of “Moth to Flame” with Lady Gaga, it was still an amazing performance. But what if you could hear what it would sound like if Hetfield's microphone was working?
Check out this version below!
A Metallica fanpage on Facebook posted the corrected version, writing that the “Web feed was fine. Only the TV broadcast had problems for some reason.” Check out what the performance should have sounded like below!
This comes right after Lars Ulrich declared Lady Gaga as the “quintessential fifth member” of Metallica in an interview he did with Rolling Stone.
“Her voice, her attitude, her outlook on everything is so awesome,” Ulrich said. “[The performance] was so effortless and organic and she just has the spirit of hard rock and metal flowing through her veins. It comes really easy for her. There's nothing contrived; she just has this super warm, easy energy.”
Ulrich also boasted about Gaga in an interview with Access Hollywood.
“It's gonna be high energy. When we were done with our rehearsal yesterday, my manager came up and said, 'This may be the heaviest song that's ever been played at the Grammys ever' — even heavier than the last four of five times Metallica were there… And now we've got a new lead singer — well, a new co-lead singer, is a better way of saying it — so we were talking earlier about maybe making her a permanent member of Metallica and being a five-piece from now on, so we'll see.”
We are totally down for a Lady Gaga/Metallica world tour. Check out the video of him talking about Lady Gaga below!
Metallica will be joined by Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat and Gojira for a massive U.S. tour starting in May where they'll be performing songs from their latest album, Hardwired…To Self Destruct, as well as classics. Tickets will be available for the general public beginning Feb. 17 at 10 a.m. local time here.
