Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has revealed an unseen photo of himself on Instagram. According to statement, the photo was taken 36 years ago today.

Lars remembered a very special milestone for Metallica, and wrote:

“36 years ago today, we played our first gig on the East Coast, at the Paramount Theater in Staten Island with Vandenberg and the Rods.

Actually, it was also our first gig outside of California and it was way cool to finally play and sweat off the crazy week long ride out from NorCal in our U-Haul Van.

And extra fucking cool to get introduced to the Old Bridge Militia and all the metal heads and disenfranchised kids in the greater Tri-State area ready for something a little different. #wanna @therealobmilitia”

Three days ago, he posted a photo of his drum kit with this statement:

“If you’re rolling through New York City, go check out the “Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock and Roll” exhibit at @metmuseum … super proud to have my drum kit from the World Magnetic Tour in the display, along with the fellas’ instruments… pretty fuckin’ cool if I may say. And some serious company too!”
