For Rolling Stone’s Musicians On Musicians issue, folk rock artist Phoebe Bridgers and Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich discover they have much in common, from experiences with the press to running vanity labels in a fun and often funny conversation.
During the chat, Ulrich gives an update on new Metallica music. “We’re three, four weeks into some pretty serious writing,” says Lars. “And of all the shit – pandemics, fires, politics, race problems, and just fucking looking at the state of the world – it’s so easy just to so fall into a depressive state. But writing always makes me feel enthusiastic about what’s next. It’s like, ‘Fuck, there’s an opportunity here to still make the best record, to still make a difference. To still do something that not even turns other people on, but turns me on.'”

For those few hours, things felt as close to normal as they have all year and we loved being able to connect with fans all over the world and perform together again.
