Watch LARS ULRICH's Sons Perform '101 X-Session' With Their Band TAIPEI HOUSTON
April 28, 2022
On March 17, TAIPEI HOUSTON, the new band featuring Myles and Layne Ulrich, sons of METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich, took part in a 101 X-Session for Austin, Texas's 101X radio station.
101 X-Sessions are exclusive three-to-four-song performances and interviews with the biggest emerging alternative artists.
For this X-Session, TAIPEI HOUSTON stopped by the station to play a few songs, including "As The Sun Sets", "The Middle" and "Drop Song".
Watch professionally filmed video of the performance below.
TAIPEI HOUSTON played its first show last September at Alex's Bar in Long Beach, California.
Since joining Instagram in August, TAIPEI HOUSTON has already amassed 14,000 followers.
Back in April 2020, Lars posted a video of Myles and Layne's blistering take on THE BEATLES classic "Eleanor Rigby". At the time, he described their rendition to Rolling Stone as "this insane, three-minute BLUE CHEER, crazy, garage-rock version of 'Eleanor Rigby'.
"Obviously, there's been some incredible versions of 'Eleanor Rigby' along the way, but I'm pretty sure there’s never been one that had this kind of sound, this kind of feel, this kind of energy and madness to it," he said. "I was, like, 'You know what, boys? You done me proud.'"
23-year-old Myles, who plays drums, has spent time at Berklee College Of Music, while 20-year-old Layne, who plays bass and sings, studied at NYU.
Lars had Myles and Layne with former wife Skylar Satenstein. He also has another son, 14-year-old Bryce, with "Gladiator" actress Connie Nielsen.
Lars and model Jessica Miller got engaged in July 2013 and married two years later. It is the third marriage for Lars, who was previously married to Debbie Jones and Satenstein.
Lars isn't the only member of METALLICA whose offspring have followed in their footsteps. Castor Hetfield, the son of METALLICA frontman James Hetfield, plays drums for BASTARDANE, while Tye Trujillo, the son of METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo, plays bass in OTTTO.
BASTARDANE will team up with OTTTO for a co-headlining West Coast U.S. tour in late May. The California trek will kick off at the METALLICA-headlined BottleRock 2022 festival in Napa Valley.
