In the world of rock, we all know there’s nothing quite like a live performance. We also know that live shows don’t always go off without a voice crack, stage dive injury, or in the case of the Metallica-Lady Gaga Grammy performance, the troublesome technical issue.
James Hetfield’s busted microphone deprived us of his killer vocals for a good portion of the collaborative “Moth into Flame” performance. Luckily for Metallica and Gaga fans alike, Metallica have released footage of the rehearsal prior to the Grammy performance! Fans can now get a better idea of the sound we were supposed to hear at the live event.
Although Lady Gaga is known for her pop style, she expresses love for metal genre and excitement at the chance to rock out with one of the biggest bands of that style. She says in the clip, ““This is so exciting for me. This is so killer. My friends are gonna hate me on Sunday.”
The clips displays footage of Hetfield and Gaga collaborating on vocal techniques, choreography, and stage production. After one take of practice, Lars Ulrich can be heard saying, “Follow that.”
