Answering , Mustaine claimed to be the co-founder of Metallica:

After all, is Mustaine or not one of the founders of Metallica? According to the band’s website, “Metallica, one of the biggest bands in the United States, was founded on October 28, 1981, when drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist and vocalist James Hetfield teamed up following an unpublished announcement by Ulrich.

Soon, they recruited Hetfield’s friend and housemouse Ron McGovney to play bass, Dave Mustaine to play guitar and used the name Metallica as a suggestion of their friend Ron Quintana.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
