Lars Ulrich Gets Drum Off Challenge From Chad Smith and Will Farrell

Red Hot Chili Peppers Chad Smith and comedian Will Farrell recently faced off against each other in a drum battle on The Tonight Show. But the two have now thrown down the gauntlet and challenged Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich to a drum-off. Smith and Ferrell were discussing their epic Tonight Show drum off with Spin Magazine when the subject of Ulrich came up. Spin asked Ferrell if he and Smith had any future plans together and he responded, "I mean, we did talk about another drum-off. With a third person that looks eerily similar to Chad and I. A third drummer out there." Chad Smith added, "I think it's - did we talk about Lars?" and Ferrell responded, We talked about Lars [Ulrich], from Metallica. So, I don't know." Spin then asked him if they have heard anything back from Lars and Ferrell responded, "Your article will be the first mentioning of it." Chad added, "This is a scoop!" and Ferrell continued, "Lars gets pissed because he gets mistaken for both me and Chad Smith. He can settle that score now, too." Chad Smith then sealed the public challenge by saying, "There it is. The gauntlet is down."

The Kinks Close To A Reunion

It looks like brothers Ray and Dave Davies have put their bad blood behind them and The Kinks may actually be reuniting with Ray confirming in an interview that discussions are underway. Ray Davies reportedly told the Sunday Times "I met Dave only last week to talk about getting back together again," he said. "We've also spoken a few times on the phone and emailed." Davies went on to say that if the band reunites it will be to create new material, not for a greatest hits tour. "He's been composing his own songs, but I'd really like to write with him again. We both agree we don't want to do old stuff or tour with past hits. It's got to be something new."

Original Guns N' Roses Reunion Predicted by Axl's Former Manager

Axl Rose's personal manager during Guns N' Roses' Use Your Illusion tour, Craig Duswalt, says that he and others in the old school GNR camp see a strong possibility of the classic lineup of the group reuniting "in the next two years." Duswalt, who is making the media rounds to promote his new memoir, "Welcome to My Jungle," says that Duff McKagan could pave the way for the band reuniting. McKagan has recently rejoined the band live, filling in for Tommy Stinson who has had live commitments with The Replacements. "Duff is paving the way to open the gates again," Duswalt said to ABC News Radio. "Axl and Duff are really getting along well at the concerts, so there's an opening." However, Duswalt also admits that there is bad blood between Axl and Slash, but he and others that were associated with the band in the past feel that Duff could bring the former members together. Duswalt tells ABC News Radio that he knows "for a fact [Axl and Slash] hate each other right now. It's bad. Axl is a loyal guy and you get on his bad side and some people don't come back, but Slash and him were so close. We [in the old-school Guns camp] all have a feeling it will happen. It's gonna happen in the next two years...there's an opening because of Duff playing with Axl." He also went into some details about where the rift between Axl and Slash originated. "It was a thing that happened at the end of [Use Your Illusion]," he said. "There were also the differences in music," Duswalt adds, "like Slash wanted to do more hard rock stuff and Axl wanted to do more ballads, rock ballads. There was that difference, but there was a specific thing that happened that both of them are at odds over."
