At Sunday’s GRAMMY Awards, Metallica and Lady Gaga brought the heat, despite some cringe-worthy technical difficulties. And while no one missed a beat during the performance, things apparently didn’t go as well backstage.

On The Late Late Show with James Corden, Lars Ulrich explains that you never really know the extent of technical issues in the moment, but afterwards? “I haven’t seen him like that in twenty years,” Ulrich says of singer James Hetfield and his reaction to the now infamous GRAMMY moment. He then goes on to talk about other technical difficulties over the years. (Spoiler alert: They’ve had more than one.)
