Metallica co-founder and drummer Lars Ulrich recently celebrated his bandmate James’ birthday. Metallica legend James Hetfield was born on August 3rd, 1963.

In addition to their harmony within the band, they have a very good friendship. These two legends, which have always been side by side since the day Metallica was founded, have almost recreated metal music and they have accomplished great things together. They won the American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Grammy Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, Kerrang! Awards and more.

“Happiest of birthdays to my brother of 438 years…
As I always say….we’re just getting started!
Love ya big man! #wanna”
