Adam Lambert: 'I Have The Right To Sing Metallica Songs'
Metallica are one of the last bands you'd expect to see on an American Idol finalist's playlist. However, it would seem that Adam Lambert is a closet Metallica fan. On October 17th in Auckland, New Zealand, Adam and his band ended their set with a surprise cover of the Bay Area Thrashers' 1991 anthem Enter Sandman. Speaking to Australian radio station Triple M, Lambert revealed his reasons for including the cover: "It's one of [guitarist] Tommy's favourite songs. We practiced it that afternoon for the first time and we kind of threw it up there. It was a lot of fun. Lambert is no stranger to singing classic rock music. He performed Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love during the American Idol competition and performed a medley with glam rock juggernauts Kiss on the show's semi-final. Despite past dabbling, a Metallica cover is probably the heaviest thing Lambert has ever done. Metallica have yet to comment on the performance, but Lambert has already defended himself against a potential onslaught from the band's fans: "I think any song could be covered if a musician wants to cover it. I don't really think any song is sacred. There are great songs, there are beautiful songs and I think anybody has the right to sing them." A video of Lambert's performance is available below:
