Lars Ulrich (* December 26th, 1963 in Gentofte, Denmark) is a danish musician and songwriter. He is also co-founder and drummer of the metal band Metallica.

How do you become as good at playing the drums as Lars Ulrich?
Step 1, you get your first drum kit as a present when you are three years old. Step 2, you form one of the greatest metal bands of all time as a teenager. Step 3, you eat pizza without cheese after every concert. Don’t ask, just do it. Step 4, you forget all the steps before, Lars Ulrich is and remains unique. But nothing stops you from duplicating him. Maybe start with his drum set-up, which you can find here. The skills will follow by themselves*. (*All data without guarantee.)
