As we reported in the past, Hulk Hogan made claims that he almost joined Metallic as a bassist.
Metallica founder and drummer Lars Ulrich was on the Howard Stern Show this week and was asked if he recalled this, he responded, “You know what?! I’m blessed or cursed, depending on how you look at it, with having more or less a photographic memory for pretty much anything that I’ve been a part of,” Lars replied. “That one, when that showed up two or three months ago, I was scratching my head over that one. Unless he went by… I don’t know Hulk Hogan, I don’t know enough about him… I’m not a huge wrestling [fan]… Unless he went by, like, his Christian name or something, and I don’t know if anybody knows what his Christian name was — Dave Smith or something — if there was a whole thing that we had with him under a different name, but I certainly have no recollection of doing anything with quote Hulk Hogan endquote. That one, I was scratching my head on that one, too.”
Apparently Lars is certain Hulk Hogan was ever in consideration, whether or not Terry Bollea was seems to be up in the air as no one on the show could recall Hogan’s real name.
