Ron McGovney Reveals New Photo For Original METALLICA Business Card

Ron McGovney reveals a new photo for the original METALLICA business card. This photo from the 80s and promote the band when he in the crew.

He is best known as the original bass guitarist in the thrash metal band METALLICA between October 1981 to December 1982. Ron McGovney was a bass guitarist of the band during its first year of gigging and showed on their early demos before late 1982. After that time he continued with the band PHANTASM. Now, he also sometimes shares new photos or images from the early days of the METALLICA band.

On January 17th, 2021, Ron McGovney shared a photo from his Twitter account and wrote that:

“Original METALLICA business card. The phone number was the one I had in my bedroom in 1979.

I moved to our rental house two doors down in 1981 and took the number with me. That house was where METALLICA started. I lived in a condo 1983-1987 and had that same number.”

He also talked in his latest interview and discussed METALLICA’s most disgusting song and replied:

“Most disgusting song METALLICA ever recorded. James Hetfield, guitarist/vocalist, and Lars Ulrich, drums played the single over and over on my turntable even though they knew I hated it. Not fun times. I listened to the Ramones. Saw them live several times. My band Phantasm played shows with punk bands including the Plasmatics.”
