Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich’s two adult sons, Myles, who’s 23 and Layne, his 20 year old, have formed a rock band.

They made the announcement on social media and started sharing their music under the band’s name… Taipei Houston.

Fans may recall the two of them in a video together last year doing Beatles’ songs. Their dad had recorded it and posted it.

In an interview for Rolling Stone shortly after, Ulrich said, “I was like, ‘You know what, boys? You done me proud.'”

They already have two concerts scheduled for later this month.

Layne plays bass guitar. And like his dad, Myles is a drummer.



  • Sept. 9 at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach, California.
  • Sept. 15 at The Mint in Los Angeles.
  • Myles and Layne are Lars’ children with his second wife, Skylar Satenstein.
