Lars Ulrich likes someone to put his socks on for him before gigs, according to Metallica frontman James Hetfield.
ContactMusic reports that during a Norwegian TV interview, Hetfield gave an insight into a day in the life of Metallica.
He said: "I feel better when people are away from me and I can get into my own space; then Lars - he likes people plugging in his earphones, putting his socks on, all of this stuff."
While backstage at a Metallica gig may be filled with people to fulfil these important jobs, one thing you probably won't find is any booze.
Hetfield added: "My rider is pretty different than it was ten years ago.
"Then it was, 'This vodka, that beer. That's it'. Now it's more, 'These fruits, these vegetables for our smoothies, and a certain kind of tea'."
