Metallica's Hammett Promises 'Completely Insane' Version of 'One' at Grammy Awards Show
As soon as the announcement of Metallica's Grammy Awards 2014 performance with classical pianist Lang Lang struck the internet, we knew that we'll be up for something special.

And now, in an exclusive Rolling Stone chat, guitarist Kirk Hammett detailed the upcoming show, announcing a "completely insane" rendition of the band's classic tune "One."

"It's gonna be completely insane," Kirk kicked off. "Lang Lang has interjected himself into the song in a way I don't think anyone else has ever done in the course of our career. He's going to be playing major parts of the song. He's going to be playing through the melody."

As Hammett further explained, the four-piece has already recorded a demo of the track with Lang Lang and it works like a charm. "He's going to be weaving in and out of my guitar solos, which is amazing for me, because I've never played with another instrument that's been able to do that so effortlessly," the guitarist added.

Finally, Kirk reassured fans that the guitar-heavy sections will still be very much present. "We're keeping all the heavy parts," he said. "And it's going to be really cool and it's really dynamic."

Grammy Awards ceremony is scheduled to take place on January 26 at Los Angeles Staples Center. Some of the notable rock and metal nominees include Black Sabbath, Queens of the Stone Age, Jack White, Dream Theater and more.
