Metallica Plan 'Completely Insane' Grammy Performance

(hennemusic) Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett is revealing some details about the band's upcoming performance with Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang at the Grammy Awards on January 26.

"It's gonna be completely insane," Hammett tells Rolling Stone about the version of "One" they'll play together. "Lang Lang has interjected himself into the song in a way I don't think anyone else has ever done in the course of our career. He's going to be playing major parts of the song. He's going to be playing through the melody."

The Grammy-Award winning song, which served as the centerpiece of Metallica's 1988 album ". . . And Justice for All", will see a new interpretation on the broadcast. "He's going to be weaving in and out of my guitar solos, which is amazing for me, because I've never played with another instrument that's been able to do that so effortlessly," says Hammett. "But don't think the band plans to soften anything up. We're keeping all the heavy parts. And it's going to be really cool and it's really dynamic." more on this story
