TIMELINE

Metallicabutton.gif (123 bytes) Metallica, consisting of James Hetfield on vocals and guitar, Lars Ulrich on drums, Kirk Hammett on guitar, and Jason Newsted on bass, formed in 1981 when Hetfield met Ulrich in California and decided to form a band (after running an ad in The Recycler). Eventually the band went on to become one of the biggest and most critically acclaimed heavy metal bands of the 80s and 90s.

1981...
