When you’re Metallica or Elton John, you get a lot of knocks on the door from people wanting to work with you. But when Metallica or Elton John knocks on your door, your head spins 360 degrees as you rush to open it! Who approached who? We aren’t sure yet, but if the rumors are true, sounds like some Sir Elton John and Metallica content will be available at some point in the future.

Elton says, “I’ve just done something with Metallica, during this lockdown period. I haven’t been doing any Elton stuff — but I’ve been doing great stuff with other people. So I’ll get you my email, email me and let’s get together and do something, OK?” Over the years, Metallica has worked with Ja Rule, Lou Reed, the SF Symphony Orchestra, and The Misfits, among others. Elton John has worked with John Lennon, Queens of the Stone Age, George Michael, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jack White, Sting, Rod Stewart, Lady Gaga, Leon Russell, Queen, Fall Out Boy, Dionne Warwick, Tom Jones, The Hollies, Bob Dylan, T. Rex, Jackson Browne, Miley Cyrus, and RuPaul, to name a few.

On a side note and maybe-related-news, Miley Cyrus mentioned last year that she was working on an album of all Metallica covers, and supposedly Elton John was going to play piano on “Nothing Else Matters.” Could this be the project Elton is referencing? Or is there something else bubbling up? Hopefully we’ll know soon because truly, nothing else matters.
