The jam was a part of Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff’s fireside chat. Ulrich initially wanted to end his interview by playing something, but couldn’t figure out what.
“I’m like, ‘Nobody wants a f*cking drum solo.’ It’s just kind of not the right moment for that type of thing,” Lars said. It was like this insane, three-minute BRUE CHEER, crazy, garage-rock version of ‘Eleanor Rigby.’
He continued: “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. I was like, ‘You know what, boys? You done me proud.’ That’s me standing in the corner filming it, going, ‘Holy f*ck!'”
