Watch Lars Ulrich’s Sons Cover the Beatles
Man, remember that scene in Some Kind of Monster where Lars Ulrich’s son, Myles, gets behind his dad’s drum kit? Remember how everyone was all, “Awwww, that’s adorable!”?
Well, that was a long time ago. Myles is all grown up now (he’s 21), and he’s gotten much better at playing drums. For evidence, look no further than the video at the bottom of this post, which shows him and his younger brother, Layne (he’s turning 19 next week), covering “Eleanor Rigby” by the Beatles. The footage was captured during Lars’ recent hour-long livestreamed video chat with Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff.
Speaking to Rolling Stone about the performance, Ulrich said:
“It was like this insane, three-minute Blue Cheer, crazy, garage-rock version of ‘Eleanor Rigby.’ Obviously, there’s been some incredible versions of ‘Eleanor Rigby’ along the way, but I’m pretty sure there’s never been one that had this kind of sound, this kind of feel, this kind of energy and madness to it. I was like, ‘You know what, boys? You done me proud.’”
Watch the cover below. Fun fact: these dudes’ mom, Skylar Satenstein, also dated Matt Damon, and was the basis for the Minnie Driver character in Good Will Hunting. That doesn’t have anything to do with anything, I just want you all to feel as old as I do.
