METALLICA's HETFIELD, ULRICH Interviewed For 'All Access Grammy Special'; Preview Available

A preview of the METALLICA portion of Katie Couric's upcoming "All Access Grammy Special", which is scheduled to air February 4 on CBS, four days before the 51st annual Grammy Awards are broadcast on the same network, can be viewed below. Couric will "get personal" with METALLICA, as well as other past and present Grammy nominees like JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, KATY PERRY and TAYLOR SWIFT. METALLICA is nominated for several Grammys this year, including "Best Metal Performance" for "My Apocalypse", "Best Rock Instrumental Performance" for "Suicide & Redemption", and "Best Rock Album" for "Death Magnetic".

The Grammys will handed out at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, beginning at 8 p.m. ET/PT on February 8. COLDPLAY, RADIOHEAD, PAUL MCCARTNEY, KATY PERRY, CARRIE UNDERWOOD and others will perform.

As previously reported, a 29-year-old police officer has been put on paid leave after urinating on a fan while attending METALLICA's concert at the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston on January 18. Officer Joseph Houston was apparently intoxicated and was ejected by Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Transit Police officers after the incident.

Houston then tried to make his was back into the venue using his police badge and allegedly called a black MBTA officer "Obama." He is also charged with trespassing as a result of trying to get back in.

Houston will face the trespassing charge on February 5 and could be sued by the person he urinated on, according to the Cape Cod Times.
