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."
