November rocks on, and so do our daily raids of That Metal Show’s video vaults. Today, we’ve got a double blast of Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich from Season 8.
In the first clip, Lars reminisces about Metallica’s early days crashing on the New Jersey floor of Megaforce Records founder Johnny Zazula back in the early 1980s. As all three TMS co-hosts—Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine, and Don Jamieson—hail from the Garden State, it’s a true headbanging trip down memory lane.
Teenage Jim Florentine not only knew the band back “in the swingin’ summer of ’83,” he carted them around in his parents’ station wagon, cracking beers and cranking tunes. There’s also talk of a show at a roller-skating rink boasting an astonishing lineup of future legends: Metallica, Anthrax, Anvil, and Riot.
