Amazing band and an amazing career!
Congratulations to Metallica and the band’s 40 years of making heavy metal music.
The pioneers of monster rock celebrated their milestone over the weekend with 40 Years of Metallica a two concert event, one Friday (Dec. 17) and the second night on Sunday (Dec. 19), at the Chase Center in their hometown of San Francisco, CA.
Metallica retains a core membership with singer James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich who started things off in 1981 before bringing on guitarist Kirk Hammett in 1983 for their debut album Kill ‘Em All. Robert Trujillo joined on bass in 2003, replacing Jason Newsted. Cliff Burton, the band’s original guitarist was killed in in 1986 in a bus accident in Sweden during the Damage, Inc. tour. Guitarist Dave Mustaine, now of Megadeth, joined in 1982 for a year. A fun backstory you can find somewhere, if interested.
