When I first started this site after switching gears some years back (the result of having kids and being dubbed “The Rock Father™”) – the original concept involved regular features on “fellow Rock Fathers” as we shared stories about raising kids while juggling work in the entertainment industries. While the site has evolved, I generally don’t focus too much on that aspect of things (sans Father’s Day time), but once in awhile something comes up that needs to be shared. A perfect example is last night’s appearance by METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Turns out that Hardwired… to Self-Destruct was recorded during the day, while the band members’ kids were at school. As Lars details his own running between kids in multiple schools and the “Parent Taxi Service,” his schedule seems pretty familiar, especially since I’m typing these digital words in the space between dropping off and picking up the youngest from Pre-K. Check out the interview below…
