Wrestling star Hulk Hogan has revealed that he almost joined an early version of Metallica.
The grappler, who stars in his own reality TV series Hogan Knows Best, said that he used to be close mates with the metal titans’ drummer Lars Ulrich during his days as a session musician.
He told The Sun: “I used to be a session musician before I was a wrestler. 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.”
Hogan also spoke about his love for The Stone Roses and said that the reunited Manchester band were once the soundtrack to his workout sessions. He said of this: “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”.
