Lars Ulrich
FameRank: 6

"Lars Ulrich" is a Danish drummer and one of the founding members of American Heavy metal music/heavy metal band Metallica. He was born in Gentofte Municipality/Gentofte, Denmark to an upper-middle-class family. 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; though rather than playing tennis, he began playing the drums. After publishing an advertisement in a local Los Angeles newspaper called The Recycler, Ulrich met James Hetfield and formed Metallica.
