Rock legend Lars Ulrich has finally earned his kids' respect - after appearing as a video game star in Metallica's Guitar Hero.
The drummer has won nine Grammy Awards and repeatedly hit the top of the charts with his band Metallica - but admits his children are more impressed by Guitar Hero: Metallica, the video game featuring the group's hits.
He tells U.S. TV news host Rachel Maddow, "It's very cool, especially when you have a 10 year old and a seven year old like I do because it's certainly in the age of spending a lot of time forcing them to finish their vegetables and do their homework and get to school on time.
"Dad actually has his own video game! That certainly helps and will continue to help into adolescence in the next couple of years."
