K!1715: Lars Ulrich – “Rock’n’roll Ruined My Life… Not Really!”
Lars Ulrich has worn many hats across the past four decades. He’s been called many more things, too. But the one thing that’s underpinned it all, through every high and low, is his burning love of rock’n’roll. And that, the Metallica sticksman tells us, is something he’ll take to the grave.
Plus, there’s an exclusive Metallica art print inside, which you can cut out and keep forever.
Elsewhere in the mag: K! investigates how much metalcore we can take on the road with Parkway Drive, NOFX’s Fat Mike clowns around and talks about weird things, Thirty Seconds To Mars’ Jared Leto chats about their upcoming new album America, we go inside the next chapter for Underøath, and Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop tells us the songs that have seen him by since the start – as well as the song that will see him by until the very end.
All before we go inside All Time Low’s triumphant show at London’s Alexandra Palace, Milk Teeth cause chaos in Birmingham and As It Is bring the pop-punk in Manchester. Finally, we review the essential rock releases this week, as The Wonder Years are back with their excellent new album, and Jason Butler roars back with The Fever 333 as they surprise-drop their debut EP.
There’s snaps of Mike Shinoda, The Distillers, Black Veil Brides, Iron Maiden and Tonight Alive for you to pin on your wall, too.
