Metalica’s drummer and founding member Lars Ulrich is celebrating his 54th birthday today. Lars was born in Gentofte, Denmark. A tennis player in his youth (he is the son of former tennis pro Torben Ulrich), Ulrich was originally a drummer in San Francisco. He then moved to Los Angeles at age sixteen in the summer of 1980 to train in the sport of tennis.
But as happens to so many, he decided that rather than playing tennis, he wanted to play the drums.
He practiced and then took out an ad in a local Los Angeles newspaper called The Recycler. Through the ad he met James Hetfield. The rest as they say ‘is history’.
Happy Birthday Lars!!!!
