Metallica is an American heavy metal band from Los Angeles, California.
They formed in 1981 when James Hetfield responded to an advertisement that drummer Lars Ulrich
had posted in a local newspaper.
The current line-up features long-time lead guitarist Kirk Hammett (who joined the band in 1983)
and bassist Robert Trujillo (a member since 2003) alongside Hetfield and Ulrich.
Previous members of the band are lead guitarist Dave Mustaine (who went on to found the band Megadeth),
and bassists Ron McGovney, Cliff Burton (R.I.P.) and Jason Newsted.
The band also had a long collaboration with producer Bob Rock, who produced all of its albums from 1990
to 2003 and served as a temporary bassist between the departure of Newsted and the hiring of Trujillo.
