Lars UlrichEarlier this month Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich sat down with Guitar Center for a video interview and tells a story of how Neil Peart helped turn him on to Tama Drums back in 1984. Neil Peart was one of Tama's primary endorsers at the time, and mutual friend Cliff Burnstein helped set up a phone call between the two where Neil helped convince him. You can watch the entire interview below or on YouTube here. The part where he discusses Neil comes in at about the 2:12 mark. Thanks to Coelho for the heads up.
