During this year’s Record Store Day Metallica visited the house where everything started for them in El Cerrito in San Fransisco. The band moved from Los Angeles to San Fransisco in 1983 to play with Cliff Burton. During the visit the band was joined by friends, relatives, crew, as well as the town’s Mayor, Greg Lyman. James Hetfield said: “This is unbelievable to be back in this place. I think we’ve all kind of forgotten a lot of stuff that’s happened in our history and this is a great way to jog our memories and to see people’s faces here, as well. We are so grateful for everyone that’s here and has been a part of this with us”. Lars Ulrich revealed that the band was planning to buy the house’s garage and put it in its headquarters but it’s now gone. The drummer also made a joke about it saying: “Whoever’s got the garage, please return it, because maybe we would finish the new record quicker if we were in that garage.”
