Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich opened up about life during the coronavirus pandemic when it comes to being able to watch live performances, apparently, Ulrich looks back on his past and considers himself lucky since he had the opportunity to see many great musicians and bands.
As you know, last year fans have not been able to go to a live concert due to the restrictions and precautions against the coronavirus pandemic. While fans were able to enjoy concerts of their favorite musicians and bands through live streaming online, it was obvious that the taste was no the same.
Just like every one of us, musicians themselves suffered from not seeing their favorites since they are used to going to concerts live throughout their whole life. While it does not seem like the conditions will not change any time soon, most of them are still hopeful.
During a recent interview with Louder Sound, Lars Ulrich was also asked whether he misses the thrill of being at a live performance and he revealed that he feels lucky about his past since he got the opportunity to see all the great show there was.
Ulrich also revealed that he was able to watch Thin Lizzy and Motörhead multiple times in the 70s and 80s in addition to seeing AC/DC as an opening act for Black Sabbath. Ulrich praised late AC/DC vocalist Bon Scott due to his style and attitude on stage along with his bandmates.
Here is what Ulrich said:
“I just think of how lucky I’ve been in the past, all the great shows I’ve seen. I saw Thin Lizzy multiple times between ’76 and ’80 – incredible. I saw Motörhead multiple times, ’79 to ’81 – insane. I saw AC/DC open for Black Sabbath in 1976. And I saw AC/DC headline in Copenhagen in ’77, and Bon Scott was so great, you couldn’t take your eyes off him.
That was Bon in his heyday, with the tight jeans, the tennis shoes, the shirt off. And I loved the way he would hold the mic with the cord rolled up two or three times, and he would stand out there at the very edge of the stage when he wasn’t singing, stand over on Malcolm’s side and let Angus bounce around in front of him…”
