I recently spoke with drummer Lars Ulrich of Metallica about a number of topics. Because of the length of the entire interview, I've decided to break it up in separate parts.

In Part 1 of this interview, I ask him about why they decided to bring their upcoming Orion Music + More festival to Detroit as well as his thoughts on the wide variety of the acts who will be performing. I hope you enjoy. - Shaffee

"It's about bringing a lot of people together and making a lot of different experiences available to them rather than doing Metalfest 2013 with Metallica and nine bands that sound like Metallica." - Lars Ulrich

Part 2 of the interview is coming soon!

Tickets are on sale now for Orion Music + More, June 8th & 9th in Detroit. Click HERE for more info.
