Metallica are amping up the energy in late night this week as they continue playing a week-long residency on ‘The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson.’ Their second performance of the run found the band rocking out the classic ‘Fuel.’
While the first residency night was heavy on Metallica, with jokes in the monologue and two interview segments featuring James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, the band’s primary role on Tuesday’s show was as musical guests.
Ferguson, with tongue firmly implanted in cheek, introduced the band by stating, “My next guests are a bunch of kids who are trying their luck at show business. Gosh darn it, they’re just fabulous. They smell so great and they’re clean.” That was followed by a cut away shot of James Hetfield lifting his arm and smelling his armpit. As for ‘Fuel,’ it was its usual blistering self. You can check out the performance in the player above.
Stay tuned to ‘The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson’ throughout the week for more Metallica performances. The show airs at 12:35AM ET / PT on CBS.
Remember the eight-month-old who rocked his “Vulgar Display of Cuteness” drum set to play Pantera‘s ’5 Minutes Alone’ on YouTube? He’s already been called up to the big leagues, as little Wyatt took his act to ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’
Wyatt, who is now nine months old, was invited to ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ for a round of ‘Can They Do It Live?’ After showing the original clip, Kimmel gave the spotlight to Wyatt and his Dad so the two could crush the Pantera classic. Wyatt’s old kit made of cans and plastic tops was replaced with a pint-sized kit that’s as bad ass as it is cute.
Funnily enough, Wyatt proved he could perform live, even though his makeshift bandmates didn’t actually play their instruments.
In a new video released to TMZ, Pantera / Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul shared his admiration for Wyatt. Paul even took it upon himself to send Wyatt and his family a $400 ddrum D1 starter kit so the little hellraiser could step up once again from makeshift kit to to real deal.
