Lou Reed Says Metallica Fans Threatening Him Over Lulu
Of course they are.
Metallica fans have had a hard enough time dealing with the band’s sound sucking the last ten plus years — they don’t need Lou Reed helping them suck harder.
Reed has claimed that Metallica fans are “threatening to shoot me” because they’re unhappy about the new Metallouca album Lulu.
In an interview with USA Today, Reed said fans of the metal titans were wishing “torture and death” upon him — even though they might not have heard the LP.
Oh, they heard it dude. Trust me — they’ve heard it. We’ve all heard it, and it sucks shit
Reed says he has not let the fan reaction affect him.
“I don’t have any fans left. After Metal Machine Music, they all fled. Who cares? I’m essentially in this for the fun of it.”
