METALLICA Drummer Lars Ulrich Talks OASIS - "The Soundtrack To My Life For The Last 20 Years"
October 2, 2014, 5 years ago
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich recently penned an article for The Guardian's official Music Blog discussing the rise of UK-based rock-popsters, Oasis. An excerpt is available below:
The Oasis phenomenon cut across all shapes, sizes, boundaries and classes. Everybody knew Oasis, and in some way were impacted by them. And if they didn’t love them, it was often the polarising opposite. But most importantly, nobody didn’t care. Everyone had an opinion. Everybody had a thought. Nobody ignored them. No one.
Oasis has been the soundtrack to my life for the last 20 years on this wonderful planet. I have stories and pictures in my mind that go along with everything, from the first time I heard particular songs and read certain articles, to hearing about the band’s shenanigans and festivities. And fortunately, I have enjoyed my fair share of crossing paths and sharing space with the fellas over the years. But most of those stories are probably best left for a night of tall tales, half truths and vivid imaginations.
