Hulk Hogan Says He Almost Joined Metallica
Source: The SunHulk Hogan claims he almost joined an early version of Metallica and that he used to be good friends with drummer Lars Ulrich during his days as a session musician.
"I used to be a session musician before I was a wrestler," he said. "I played bass guitar. I was big pals with Lars Ulrich and he asked me if I wanted to play bass with Metallica in their early days but it didn't work out."
He added that he was a big fan of The Stone Roses and he used to play them during his workout sessions. He added, "I love the Stone Roses. They're getting back together, right? That's cool man. I used to work out to some of their songs."
Finally, he mentioned the band Kasabian and said, "I heard about these guys. They have made a show about UK wrestling in the '80s, called 'Walk Like A Panther'. I know Rollerball Rocco, he's in it. He's my guy. I'll be his tag partner and sort them out for trashing hotel rooms under my name."
