FLASHBACK: Lars Ulrich’s Rock Hall Acceptance Speech

Today (December 26) is Lars Ulrich’s birthday, and since we’re coming off the announcement of the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction class, we thought we’d look back to 2009 when Metallica were inducted.

Lars’ speech was short, straight to the point and incredibly poignant, especially at the end when he thanked his father, Torben, for giving him a great, fulfilling childhood.  We can’t help but tear up along with him.
