Metallica was formed in 1981 by Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield and today also includes Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo. Metallica is the biggest selling heavy metal band in the world and is the fifth highest selling music artist in history, with over 50,000,000 albums sold in the U.S. alone. In total, the band has released 9 albums, 3 live albums, as well as a multitude of singles, music videos, and has had five consecutive albums hit number one on the Billboard 200 charts – all of which has led to the band winning seven Grammy Awards.
Sessions’ connection to music has been growing ever since owner, Joel Gomez, first opened the shop doors. Today we see this connection as an essential influence on our brand. Our affiliation with Metallica stems from Joel’s relationship with Mark Reiter, from QPrime Management, and James Hetfield, who’s similar interests in skateboarding and snowboarding led them on a snowboard trip to Squaw Valley USA in Lake Tahoe, CA in 1997.
