Текст реферата Metallica: the beginnings

METALLICA is a megaband of heavy metal from 80s and 90s, whose name
became a face of heavy metal for many fans and musicians. There are
only few bands in the history of rock that reached such height as
Metallica, and I doubt that today someone else has such fame and
popularity as them. In short fifteen years this band turned from a
bunch of basement amateurs into a national sensation. Most importantly
Metallica never compromised their music for anyone in show business.
Their music always was their selfexpression, their faith. In this
story, I will try to tell how Metallica began.
Metallica’s beginning as many other things in this world owes
to someone being at the right place in the right time. I’m
talking about one of the founders of future legend – its drummer,
Lars Ulrich, who was born in faraway Denmark. This fact is
interesting, because only two famous performers of heavy metal were
ever born in Denmark: King Diamond and Ulrich himself. Lars was born
in a suburb of Copenhagen on December 26, 1963 in family of famous at
that time tennis player, Torben Ulrich. Due to this, problem of
Lars’s profession was solved at early age. At the beginning
little Lars constantly traveled all around the world with his dad to
different championships and tournaments, and later took up tennis
himself. By the time Lars was ten, he was in the top ten of Danish
junior league, and would only keep advancing. Both Lars and his father
were thinking that his future was set as a tennis star. However, that
soon changed. In February of 1973 young Lars accidentally wound up at
a concert of Deep Purple. He was taken there by his father’s
friend – old hippie and fan of hard rock. Lars himself had little
interest in that kind of music. What he saw, however, turned his world
upside down. A week later, Lars brought home his first vinyl disc
– album Deep Purple ‘71’ ‘Fireball’. Lars
also got into Sweet, Uriah Heep, Slade, Thin Lizzy, and Black Sabbath
– all the British rockelite. Black Sabbath’s concert in 75
inspired other people too, so Copenhagen at the time had plenty of
teenagers jumping with some heavy music and trying make guitarists of
themselves. Lars, on the other hand, chose a very different instrument
for himself – the drums. More and more often you could see him
spending time with two sticks and a bunch of boxes instead of his
tennis racket. Lars finally got real drums for his 13 th birthday
after bugging his grandmother for several months. One time going
around his favorite of music stores, Lars found out “New Wave of
British Heavy Metal” or “NWOBHM” that changed his life
again. In fall of 79 Lars finally met a real, live rocker –
drummer of Motorhead, Phil Taylor. Lars’s parents at the same
time were trying to find a way to deal with their son’s growing
music obsession. They decided on moving to America, where they were
sure, it would be easier for Lars to
