– The band’s manager, Andy Goodwin said in an interview that Lars Ulrich had send a letter to the E.F. Band’s Information Club offering his services as a drummer sortly after the release of their “Last Laugh Is On You” album in 1981.
– Supported the European tours of Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow (1981) and Saxon (1982)
– Featured on “Metal For Muthas” (LP, EMI, 1980) with ‘Fighting For Rock And Roll’
