The heart and soul of this band is without question Lars Ulrich. He's always doing something, whether it's talking, walking, moving his hands and fingers. The first time I met Lars was in 1991 and I can remember him saying to me as he was signing several items "Where did you get these?" "Can I buy them on the way to the gig?" Lars was referring to some new magazines I had at the time. He really like them. I have seen Lars many times since and I have to admit, once of my favorite Lars scenes was outside a hotel in Chicago. It was about 4:30am and the show was long over. I was waiting for band to return and after waiting what seemed like an eternity a van pulled up and out came someone. It wasn't Lars, but two bodyguards carrying him out of the van. Classic! He couldn't even walk. That's how I like to think of Lars Ulrich.
