They came down on my 50th birthday to the Whisky and played 45 minutes of old Motörhead songs! I always thought Metallica were good from day one. But when I first met Lars Ulrich, he was a horrible mouthy brat, same as he is now. He was head of Mot7ouml;rhead's West Coast fan club; what he didn't tell us was that he and Cliff [Burton, Metallica's original bassist] were the only members! Lars is a true friend. I'd hide him even if he were charged for murder. And Jimmy [James Hetfield] is frickin' funny as shit. I wish he wouldn't take everything so seriously, though. It seems to be messing with his head.
