Watch Metallica Perform ‘Hit the Lights’ on ‘The Late Late Show’

As promised, Metallica took the  stage of ‘The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson’ last night, beginning a five-night  residency with a band-focused episode that included a performance of ‘Hit  the Lights.’

ABC News Radio reports that the show’s interview segment  found Metallica drummer Lars  Ulrich reminiscing about a couple of the more embarrassing moments in the  band’s history, including the night that ended with Ulrich barfing all over his  shirt in front of Motorhead frontman Lemmy.

“Lemmy came to town and I was pretty nervous, so [I drank] a couple of shots  of straight vodka,” recalled Ulrich. “So I tried that outside of Lemmy’s hotel,  walked in and a couple of hours later I woke up and I’d been photographed, and  it ended up on the inner sleeve of the next Motorhead album [1986’s  ‘Orgasmotron’].”

Ulrich and singer/guitarist James  Hetfield also looked back on the making of ‘Some Kind of Monster,’ the  documentary — currently celebrating its 10th anniversary with a deluxe  reissue — that depicted the turbulent sessions for the band’s ‘St.  Anger‘ LP. “They came up to San Francisco to film the process of us making a  new record,” explained Ulrich. “And then over the course of the next few months,  one breakdown after another breakdown occurred.”

Metallica’s ‘Late Late Show’ residency was supposed to be one of two taking  place on late night this week, but U2‘s  scheduled stay on  ‘The Tonight Show’ had to be tabled after Bono needed surgery following a spill  from a bike. Check out last night’s performance of ‘Hit the Lights’  above.
