You remember this, right?
Following an epic late-night drum battle on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Will Ferrell told SPIN that Lars Ulrich from Metallica was their next “target” citing his physical appearance was “eerily similar.”
On the phone with SPIN, Ferrell said: “Lars gets pissed because he gets mistaken for both me and Chad Smith. He can settle that score now, too.”
Ulrich has officially accepted the challenge in the statement below:
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!!!
