Before this lineup Metallica consisted Ron McGovney as an original bassist from 1981 until he left the band in 1982 and then Cliff Burton joined the band as a bassist in 1982 and played until his death in 1986. After his death, Jason Newsted worked as a bassist from 1986 until his departure from Metallica in 2001 and he was replaced by Robert Trujillo in 2003. The other American heavy metal band Megadeth's front man Dave Mustaine, actually was the first lead guitarist and a co-songwriter of Metallica until he was fired from the band in 1983 and was replaced by present lead guitarist Kirk Hammett.
