BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe just had the chance to speak with Metallica’s miniaturized drummer Lars Ulrich about the band’s next album.
Inevitably, the question of who would produce it arose.
Lars demurred, for the most part.
“I can’t tell you [about] that yet. We had a little powwow a couple of weeks ago,” says Lars.
“Our managers came out to try and ask us that very question — who’s producing our record? — and they walked away empty-handed. But it’s down to one or two names, both of them who are certainly not gonna surprise anybody.
“We’ve just gotta kind of circle the wagons and figure it out.”
Anyone wanna wager a guess in the comments section?
Bob Rock or Rick Rubin, would be my guess.
Jason Suecof would be the best and most respectable bet. Take a chance on a crazy kid, Metallica.
I am sure he’d do right by you.
