Lars Ulrich is an American-Danish musician and one of the founding members of the famous heavy metal band ‘Metallica’. Although Ulrich belonged to a well bred family of sports players and his father was a professional tennis player, but he chose the life of a musician even though he was encouraged from his father to take up tennis seriously since he was a young boy. His love for metal music and drumming formed for the first time at the age of 10 when his father took him to his first concert to watch the live performance of ‘Deep Purple’. Ulrich was so moved by the music that he got his first drumset shortly afterwards and started pursuing music. It was when he moved to Los Angeles with his family that he was able to jam with other heavy mental musicians, in the course of which he met James Hetfield and formed the world famous heavy metal band ‘Metallica’. He has been since playing drums for the band for over two decades now and manages his own record label ‘Music Company’ side by side. Ulrich is the first Danish musician ever to be induced in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
