Lou Reed says that Metallica fans have threatened to shoot him after the sour reaction to their "Lulu" collaboration (reviewed here). Reed told USA Today that the metal fans "are threatening to shoot me, and that's only because I showed up." "They haven't even heard the record yet, and they're recommending various forms of torture and death," he added.
The negative response to "Lulu" does not concern Reed:
"I don't have any fans left," he says. "After Metal Machine Music (1975), they all fled. Who cares? I'm essentially in this for the fun of it."
Lars Ulrich leapt to the defence of the singer:
"This is something they've never heard. Nobody hears rhythms or delivers poetry the way Lou does. It's not for everyone, but I think it's a fantastic record."
Reed called Metallica his "metal blood brothers," and even hinted that there could be more from the collaboration if he gets his way. "No-one wants 'Lulu Part 2', but on Radio Lou, in my head where I hear these songs, I want more of it," he said.
