Earlier this week Spin published an interview with Red Hot Chili Pepper's Chad Smith and comedian Will Ferrell about their recent Tonight Show drum-off and during the chat they issued a drum challenge to Metallica's Lars Ulrich. And it was revealed on Thursday that Ulrich has taken up the challenge.
Spin reached out the Metallica drummer to get his response to the challenge and here is what he had to say, "It was a little lonely on the sidelines during the first drum-off, given the somewhat forced nature of the lookalike element between Chad Smith and Will Ferrell, when I'm truly the one carrying that dead-ringer gene around!
"As for any further drum-offs, I'm sure that with a bit of practice, I could give Chad a run for his money. But Will? That's a whole different story. He rules the 'bad-ass drummer universe.'
"I mean, you're talking about a guy who's so next level, actually, so beyond next level, that he may just be completely unreachable! That said, I'm definitely up for the challenge... Bring it on!"
A short time later, Chad Smith had the following response on Facebook, "Two pieces of advice for Lars: Leave the double bass drums at home and load up on cowbells!"
