If you’ve seen the Metallica movie Some Kind Of Monster, you saw the band’s audition process for their new bass player (who would end up being Robert Trujillo). What you didn’t see or hear was the story of how Metallica’s drummer Lars Ulrich took him out on the town and fed him copious amounts of alcohol the night before the audition. Fast forward to 41:00 of this interview to get Trujillo’s account of it, and then try to imagine auditioning for the biggest band in the world with a massive hangover.
And for the record, that podcast is full of great interviews with all kinds of different interesting people, including lots of great musicians. Take some time and discover WTF With Marc Maron.
