Metallica and Lou Reed Album Broadway Based
"There are two stories 'Lulu's based on, and I rewrote 'Lulu' from the get-go, taking the original plot — mostly 'Earth Spirit,' not 'Pandora's Box' — and followed it essentially from the point of view of Lulu and the various people who love her, until she gets involved with Jack the Ripper," explains Reed. "The basics. So the Metallica version will have absolutely all of that and more. It'll probably come out by November."
Any chance of Metallica joining a "Lulu" production? "I don't think Metallica wants to be a band on Broadway!," chuckles Reed. "They're metalheads. They're not going to do that. But the version of the 'Lulu' music I did with Metallica is awe-inspiring. "
