After settling their rivalry on Fallon, Ferrell and Smith challenge their next target: Metallica’s drummer Lars Ulrich. Ferrell says:
Lars gets pissed because he gets mistaken for both me and Chad Smith.
He can settle that score now, too. There it is. The gauntlet is down.
The Chili Peppers drummer also recalls his first time meeting Ferrell at an afterparty for the film The Ladies Man.
Ulrich gives an interview to The Talks. He discusses the money he made with Metallica and if he has always been interested in art.
I grew up in a household that was pretty rich culturally. In Copenhagen in the late ’60s there was a lot of music, a lot of art, a lot of cultural awareness of what was going on in the world. So I was really very interested in things like Warhol and I remember very early on my parents introduced me to artists like Marc Chagall and different things like that.
Ulrich talks about filming the Metallica video St. Anger in San Quentin Prison:
Very intimidating—trust me. It’s surreal being inside San Quentin and looking out at the surrounding area where every morning I drive my kids to school. I now know which chimney is the exhaust pipe from the gas chamber. It’s truly, truly bizarre.
