Lars Ulrich quits drug with Noel Gallagher's help

Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich used Noel Gallagher as an inspiration to give up cocaine.

The drummer set he decided to quit the drug a few years ago, and took the Oasis guitarist as an inspiration.

“A couple of years ago I was like, ‘You know? Enough of this. I don’t need it’. It was literally something that happened one morning, like ‘Y’know? Fuck that’,” he told The Quietus.com.

He added: “I was very impressed with Noel Gallagher. As you know, I’m an Oasis fanatic, and Noel was like [adopts Mancunian accent] ‘You know what? No more cocaine!’ (Gallagher quit in 1998) and I thought, ‘If he can do it, everybody else can do it’.

“I had my fun with it, it was always more of a social thing. We were never like rolling around and spending days in bathroom stalls, and peeking out the keyholes of doors for days.”
