As mentioned in earlier episodes, some significant musical events took place in the year 1981. One of those events was the formation of Metallica. The band went on to achieve all kinds of ridiculous levels of success, but when I held their first album in my hands while I decided whether or not to buy it in 1983, I could have never, ever imagined.
This week it's my pleasure to talk in detail about the beginnings of Metallica, a band that I absolutely worshipped as a kid - the reason why drummer Lars Ulrich's parents brought him to California from Denmark, the awkward first meeting between he and guitarist James Hetfield, the firing of Dave Mustaine, and everything else that happened in Metallica's earliest days. Don't miss it.
