Lars Ulrich, the drummer for Metallica, recently spoke on Howard Stern’s show about several topics including Hulk Hogan’s claim that he nearly joined Metallica. Ulrich denied the rumors and said he doesn’t even know Hulk.
“You know what? I’m blessed or cursed, depending on how you look at it, with having more or less a photographic memory for pretty much anything that I’ve been a part of,” said Ulrich. “That one, when that showed up two or three months ago, I was scratching my head over that one. Unless he went by – I don’t know Hulk Hogan, I don’t know enough about him… I’m not a huge wrestling (fan) – if there was a whole thing that we had with him under a different name, but I certainly have no recollection of doing anything with quote Hulk Hogan end quote. That one, I was scratching my head on that one, too.”
