One of many greatest headlines from the 2017 GRAMMY Awards Ceremony, was the collaborative performance of Metallica and Lady Gaga.

The band’s drummer Lars opened up about how he would like to collaborate with Lady Gaga within the close to future, saying that she was the “quintessential fifth member of the band.”

However if you ask James Hetfield if he would be concerned with collaborating with Lady Gaga in the near future, his reply is totally different.

No. But even just talking with her, being around her, her energy was very, very exciting. She has lots of ideas, and she likes to push the boundaries like we do. So it was a good fit.

The actual show, live on TV, I was very angry, yes. All the rehearsals, everything was perfect; up to there, everything was working. But, you know, out of my control. Something happened…

I don’t know what happened. But the silver lining is that Lady Gaga and me were singing closer, and [there] was a little more collaboration. She’s an amazing person – very talented.

So though we could never hear them collaborate again, at the very least James Hetfield can say that though he was frustrated with the microphone throughout the performance, he was appreciative of the time with Lady Gaga.
