Lars Ulrich Has Huge Respect For His Bandmates In Metallica

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich appeared on Sirius XM‘s “The Howard Stern Show”. In the interview, the legendary drummer spoke about his youth and the influence of his family on him. He also sent praising words for his bandmates in Metallica.

Lars Ulrich formed Metallica with his close friend James Hetfield back in 1981. Since then, they’ve lived tons of great moments together besides recording and releasing stuff; they cried together, laughed together, and mourned a bandmate after passing in a tragic bus crash. But no matter what happened, they always had each other’s back and were a good friend.

However, mentioning his youth years before he formed Metallica, Ulrich revealed that he had traveled to around the world because of his father’s job and how he loved these trips with the following words (via Blabbermouth): “My dad was a professional tennis player, and he traveled around the world. And my favorite thing, when I was growing up, was to travel with him. So I spent the first six or seven years of my life basically on the tennis tour traveling around and hanging out backstage and locker rooms and on tennis courts.

In the continuation, he says that after moving to America, his peers had a rebellious attitude towards their families with the fire of youth, but he took the opposite approach because he thought that his parents were the coolest people in the world.

“When I came to America, when I met James, when I met the other guys in the early years of the band and some of my friends when I landed here, there was that kind of rebellious thing. It was a big part of everybody who was 16 or 17; you were sort of rebelling against your parents. I never had that. I thought my parents were the coolest people in the world.”

Lars Ulrich Revealed what the Metallica Organization Means to Him

Lars Ulrich also talked about his favorite thing about being in a band. According to Ulrich, his favorite part of being in a band is never being alone and having his brothers around when he has a problem. He has spoken heartwarming for his bandmates in Metallica.

“Now, obviously, I’ve done therapy, and there were some issues, as you do a deeper dive into it… Denmark is a very liberal country, very safe country, so I’d say the flipside of my issues was I often was left alone and [I] may still carry some issues of abandonment.

“And I think part of the reason that I love being in a band and feel so safe with James, Kirk and Rob and the rest of the Metallica organization is I love being in a collective. They are the brothers I never had. And that safety in numbers.”
