“Certainly initially Lars and I got together for a jam [forming a band] didn’t occur, there was no feel. And when he came to me with an probability to be on a history, that was fairly exciting. In those days in my lifestyle I desired to be a musician, I didn’t want to perform.”
“One of the greatest factors about connecting up with Lars was that he had many songs I never observed. He was Danish. He had Western factors. The most difficult factors I had observed was Hug, Aerosmith, just some of the punk rock factors. Ramones, Sex Guns. AC/DC, Scorpions, Judas Clergyman, Metal First. But then when he introduced in some of the more subterranean factors, I was offered away.”
Still without a name for his group, Lars conversations with buddy Ron Quintana, who is thinking titles for a fanzine. Among Quintana’s suggested titles are “Metal Mania” and “Metallica.” Lars persuades Ron to name the fanzine Steel Mania and “steals” the name “Metallica” for his group.
Among Lars’s own concepts for the group name were: Blitzer, Grinding machine, Helldriver, Thunderfuck, as well as “Lars Ulrich” written in reverse.
“Lars would check out S.F. and accident on my ground. He split my cassette outdoor patio by regularly enjoying and rewinding my best stay Precious stone Go footage, but always introduced enough awesome footage and ‘zines to create me ignore about any issues.”
