Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich became the guest of “The Late Late Show” after the 59. Grammy Awards ceremony. During the conversation, the microphone problem in Grammy was discussed. Lars also expressed his opinion about James Hetfield throwing guitar on technical team. He said:

“In the heat of the battle, you’re out there and you’re playing, when it’s a technical issue, you don’t really know — ‘Is it going to the house?’ ‘Is his vocals going to the truck? ‘Maybe it’s just the monitors.’ — so you’ve just gotta keep playing.


We get off stage, we get back there, and I haven’t seen James like that in twenty years. I mean, he was livid. He’s aged really well and he’s a pretty chill guy, but the first five or ten minutes in that dressing room was not a lot of fun. But, like they say, the show must go on, and we fought through it. And with the fire and Gaga in my lap for about a minute at one point, it was just, ‘Keep going, keep going, keep going.’

So we fought through it, and a lot of people said that at least it made for great television, which is really the point of doing the Grammys to begin with.
