VH1: Do you remember where you were when you first heard Metallica’s Kill ‘Em All?

KING: “That would have been someone’s tape. Yes, I said tape!! In those days the tape trade was huge and was basically how people shared music. I remember thinking it was awesome and couldn’t wait to buy it!! While the rest of us were still finding ourselves musically and creatively, you had the sense that Metallica already knew. They had their sh*t together and knew exactly who they were and what they were about.”
