Lars Ulrich reveals his favorite Metallica song of all time:

“Sad But True”. I just love playing that song and I play it a little differently each time. I love the tempo and giving it a different interpretation every time I play it.”

In the same interview, Ulrich also recalled when he realized that he wanted to be a professional musician:

“I’m not sure that there was one specific day. I grew up in a world of tennis and sports and at some point I ignorantly thought that I was going to follow in my father’s footsteps that way. When I was about 16 or 17 I realised that was not going to happen. But I don’t know if I thought of being a musician then.”

“I’ve always loved music – the energy, the spectacle of rock’n’roll – and music has always been my passion. I’ve told this story a couple times, but when we were halfway through the Master Puppets tour cycle, we did six or or eight months opening for Ozzy [Osbourne], and the last US show was somewhere in Virginia.”

“Our manager came out and we had a meeting in the back of the bus on the afternoon of the show. He sat down and he told us that we all made enough money now to be able to buy houses when we got back from this tour. It was pretty surreal because, leading up to that moment, money had never been a motivation.”

“I was about 22, so we were five years into it. All we wanted was to have some fun, play some music, hang out in a gang, drink a couple beers and whatever else comes with it. Hearing suddenly that “you can go and buy a house if you want” was extremely strange, honestly. Is as close I can get to answering your question specifically. That was in August of 1986.”
