Metallica Considered Making Lars Lead Singer was a top 16 story of May 2016: Metallica at one point in their early career briefly considered making drummer Lars Ulrich their lead singer. This is according to the band's former manager Jon 'Jonny Z' Zazula.

It's been well documented that frontman James Hetfield was nervous about his singing abilities in the early days of the band and the group considered brining in another singer, including Armored Saint and former Anthrax vocalist John Bush.

But one surprising person that the band considered was band cofounder Lars Ulrich. Zazula, who managed the band in 1982, tells Metal Hammer, "Lars and I planned a lot of stuff. But James wasn't the most confident of singers. I don't think he felt comfortable.

"At one point there was even talk of Lars becoming the frontman." But Zazula quickly added, "For about five seconds." As history records, Hetfield got over his nerves and the band went on to recording their debut album "Kill 'Em All." Read the original report here.
