METALLICA's LARS ULRICH Is 'Proud' Of 'Lulu', Says Album 'Will Age Well'
"Give Lulu a chance........"
......Lars cited U.S. talk show host "Howard Stern" as a particularly high-profile example of someone who mocked "Lulu" on release, but later ate his words.
"[He was] one of the many cynics that came around three months later and spent days on the broadcast apologizing, and so there's a whole group of people who keep coming back and saying, 'I was wrong about 'Lulu'!'" Lars said. "It's like, 'Listen, no worries; it's fine, you can think what you want.' We're happy and proud, and Lou Reed is obviously a legend. Who wouldn't want to work with him? If Lou Reed called you up and said, 'Listen, I love your writing for Kerrang! Do you want to do a project together where we could write some poetry?', are you telling me you're going to say 'no?'"........
