Rolling Stone reports that Metallica and Lou Reed have teamed up for a full-length record. (LP, CD, release—what do we call this now??)
“A marriage made in heaven,” Reed says in his first interview about the project, in the studio lounge during a break. “I knew it from the first day we played together: ‘Oh, man, this is perfection, right in front of me.’ “
This will surely be the best-selling Lou Reed record in decades, and it does give Metallica some artistic credibility, I guess.
Mostly this will be another bizarre chapter in the musical life of our Lou.
