Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich Says Noel Gallagher Inspired Him To Get Off Cocaine














Metallica‘s legendary days of hard partying are long over, but some habits die harder than others, and for drummer Lars Ulrich, cocaine use continued to linger well into the 21st century. In fact, as he recently shared during an interview with the UK’s Daily Mirror, he didn’t give up the drug until Oasis co-founder Noel Gallagher inadvertently inspired him to set it aside 10 years ago.

“In the early days, I’d always get drunk way faster than the other guys,” Ulrich explained. “I realized that if there was a little bit of cocaine involved I could stay up longer, instead of ending up face down in the corner passed out three hours before the party ended. I loved the social elements of cocaine. I loved the danger of it. Then about 10 years ago, I read an interview with Noel Gallagher, in which he said: ‘I just stopped doing cocaine.’ I thought that was really cool: it felt so fresh, so honest, so pure — I love that side of him. I’ve never had an addictive personality, so I woke up one day and said: ‘Enough.’”

Unlike a lot of people who’ve walked away from substance abuse, Ulrich still finds himself able to indulge occasionally. His party diet has changed, however; as he told the Mirror, he planned on unwinding after Metallica’s recent Glastonbury gig with a glass of bubbly. “A glass of champagne, that’s probably what I’ll have,” he nodded. “Before the gig we’ll be like a sports team backstage doing all our stretching. We won’t be shooting tequilas. But afterwards, yes, I’ll have a drink. Champagne — maybe tequila, vodka. I like clear drinks; I don’t really do beer.”

Ulrich went on to describe his current domestic existence, which includes making lunch for his kids, driving them around after school, and squeezing in his Metallica responsibilities during the daytime hours. Cholesterol problems have driven meat from his diet — “I live and breathe hummus” — and although he still enjoys a bit of alcohol every now and then, he says it’s much more of an occasional thing these days. “If I have anything to drink at home, it’s maybe only once every week or two, and it’s always after the kids have gone to sleep,” he explained. “I don’t like to drink around them.”

Liam Gallagher's New York City Home Is Up For Sale














If you've got the money to live like a rock star, you might be interested in owning the home of one.

Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has put his two-bedroom New York City pad on the market for a cool $4 million.

And the star is clearly hoping to pocket a handsome profit, as he purchased the plush Manhattan abode for $2.5 million in 2012.

The apartment offers sweeping views over Central Park and the Big Apple beyond, thanks to its plum position on the 17th floor of the landmark JW Marriott Essex House hotel building.

According to the New York Post, the unit in the 1931 building was 'recently renovated and features coffered ceilings, wide-plank herringbone floors, central air conditioning and a chef’s kitchen with a 40-bottle wine cooler'.

And, just to add that little extra touch of luxury, the hotel's services are extended to the apartment's residents.

Those amenities include maid service, 24-hour room service, valet parking, plus a gym, spa and business centre.

And, should there be no immediate buyers, the apartment can be rented though the hotel's management if it sits unoccupied for more than one month.

Speaking earlier this year Mark Coyle said that the album has the spirit of Oasis's debut, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. "The new record will be seismic," he said.

"It's so explosive that, on the day it comes out, Virgin Trains won't be able to cope with all the people trying to flee the chaos."
