Metallica’s Lars Ulrich Accepts Drum-Off Challenge From Will Ferrell & Chad Smith


An off-handed drum battle challenge to Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich made by Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers, etc. drummer Chad Smith has been accepted. Ulrich told Spin:

“It was a little lonely on the sidelines during the first drum-off, given the somewhat forced nature of the lookalike element between Chad Smith and Will Ferrell, when I’m TRULY the one carrying that dead-ringer gene around! As for any further drum-offs, I’m sure that with a bit of practice, I could give Chad a run for his money. But Will? That’s a whole different story. He rules the “bad-ass drummer universe.” I mean, you’re talking about a guy who’s so next level, actually, so beyond next level, that he may just be completely unreachable! That said, I’m definitely up for the challenge…Bring it on!!!”

Both Ferrell and Smith had a drum-off battle (see it here) for charity earlier this year which raised over $300,000 for Cancer For College.
