Metallica’s Grammys Performance Of ‘One’ Could Have Used More Jethro Tull

Then again, that’s true of all bands. (No, it’s not. Not at all.) Metallica, who lost the one and only Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance Vocal or Instrumental to Jethro Tull in 1989, showed off their classical side, with a performance of “One” with Chinese pianist Lang Lang. Compare this, from tonight…

…to this, from 1989.

It sounds like two different bands. Fighting Napster softens a man, I guess.
