(Rock News Desk) Lou Reed reduced Metallica men James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett to tears with just one line from a song, says the thrash lead guitarist.

The band recently revealed details of the album they recorded with art-rock icon Reed in May, following both parties' enjoyment of playing a live show together two years ago.

The record is called Lulu and it's based on Reed's reworking of a musical he'd written, inspired by German playwright Frank Wedekind's material from the early 1900s. But when it came to laying down the song Junior Dad, half of Metallica found themselves overcome with emotion when they heard the lyric "Say hello to Junior Dad, the greatest disappointment age withered and changed him." more on this story
