Lars Ulrich James Hetfield and Lloyd Grant.
Late 1981: Metallica puts a song a on compilation LP called Metal Massacre 1, featuring metal bands from the L.A. area. The song they put onthe album was called "Hit The Lights" (sound familiar?). The band at that time was Lars on the drums, Jaymz on rhythm guitar, bass and vocals, and Lloyd Grant, on the lead guitar.Source(s): http://www.allmetallica.com/info/history.php

The Very First Line-up for Metallica was:
James Hetfield: Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar
Dave Mustaine: Lead Guitar
Ron McGovney: Bass Guitar
Lars Ulrich: Drums
Dave Mustaine was fired after getting into a fight with the band members, being replaced with Kirk Hammett. Ron McGovney was not happy about the band members, especially Dave Mustaine. He was replaced by Cliff Burton.
