Founded in Norvale,California in 1981 by drummer Lars Ulrich(born December 16,1963 in Copenhagen,Denmark), and guitarist James Hetfield(born August 3,1963 in Los Angeles,California). This "Thrash/Heavy Metal" group is credited for making Metal Rock what it is today. At the same time, overcoming adversity and tragedy including the firing of guitarist Dave Mustaine, and the death of bassist Cliff Burton on September 27,1986, in a bus crash while touring Sweden. Guitarist Kirk Hammett(born November 18,1962 in San Francisco,California) replaced Mustaine, and bassist Jason Newsted(born March 4,1963 in Battle Creek,Mi) replaced Burton.
Prior to Burtons death, Metallica released three albums. First, "Kill Em' All" in 1983. Then, "Ride the Lightning" in 1984. Followed by "Master of Puppets" in 1986 which is said to be Metallica's finest effort on vinyl. Metallica later went on to write extremely complex music, which sold millions of copies without even the benefit of airtime.
Additionally, they toured with names such as Guns N' Roses and Ozzy Osbourne. Then went on to headline the 6th American Lollapalooza Tour.
