(Classic Rock) Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich revealed in July that he hadn't known that his bandmates considered firing him in 1986 until recently. The story, which had circulated for years, was given new credence when Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian said in 2014: "They were, like, 'When we finish this tour, we're going to find a new drummer.'

Last year Ulrich's bandmate Kirk Hammett confirmed it, saying: "We were unhappy, and we might have grumbled something to someone." Now Ulrich tells Metal Forces: "It's certainly not something that I was ever aware of.

"When you have a collective entity like Metallica that's been together for 35 years, there are times on that journey where the idea of what to do next has brought different options.

"There were times when Kirk was kind of floating out there, and there were a couple of times Hetfield was floating out there, and there were times when I was floating out there.

"So it was very possible. I'm sure Scott Ian knows something that I don't - and I'm fine with that. It was just not something that was ever on my radar." Read more here.
