Since rock legend Lou Reed passed away on Oct. 27, an incredible amount of musicians have offered their condolences. However, not much had been heard from the members of Metallica, who recorded the collaborative album 'Lulu' with Reed in 2011. However, one day shy of the 'Lulu' album's second anniversary, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has offered a lengthy and heartfelt tribute to Reed.
The rock world was stunned over the weekend after learning Lou Reed had passed away. The musician's cause of death was not originally confirmed with the news of his passing, but the details have now been made public.
As we reported earlier today, legendary Velvet Underground frontman and solo artist Lou Reed has died at the age of 71. The veteran rocker had undergone a liver transplant in May, but no cause of death has been officially announced.
Very sad news to report as rock legend Lou Reed passed away today (Oct. 27) at the age of 71. While no cause of death has been reported, Reed did undergo a liver transplant back in the spring of this year.
Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn generally says what is on his mind, and that was definitely the case in a recent interview with Metal Shrine. Apparently, like most other people with ears, Flynn is not a fan of the Metallica/Lou Reed album ‘Lulu.’
"This is for people who are literate," Lou Reed insists about 'Lulu,' his widely criticized collaboration album with Metallica. "This isn’t 'I cry in my beer cos you f---ed him and ran your truck through my bar."
Darren Aronofsky, the director of redemption-themed, Oscar-nominated films such as 'The Wrestler' and 'Black Swan,' got behind the camera to shoot the video for the Lou Reed and Metallica single 'The View.' While the Loutallica collaboration, which yielded the 'Lulu' album, has been the subject of much criticism and even lower sales, Aronofsky breathed new artistic life into the project with this visually arresting black and white video.
The Lou Reed & Metallica collaborative album 'Lulu' is without a doubt the most infamous, reviled and debated upon release of 2011. Paolo Gregoletto, bassist for American metalcore band Trivium recently shared his "view" on the album, claiming that any fan who claims to understand 'Lulu' must be on some sort of drug trip.
The ‘Loutallica’ experience marches on with a recent trip over the pond. Lou Reed & Metallica recently set their sights on entertaining the crowd of the UK based show ‘Later…With Jools Holland.’ Their performance included the original track ‘Iced Honey’ from their recent ‘Lulu’ release and a cover of the Velvet Underground tune ‘White Light/White Heat.’
