Hogan claims he almost joined an early version of Metallica and that he used to be good friends with drummer Lars Ulrich during his days as a session musician.

He said: "I used to be a session musician before I was a wrestler. I played bass guitar. I was big pals with Lars Ulrich and he asked me if I wanted to play bass with Metallica in their early days but it didn't work out."

He added that he was a big fan of The Stone Roses and he used to play them during his workout sessions. He added: "I love the Stone Roses. They're getting back together, right? That's cool man. I used to work out to some of their songs."

Finally, he mentioned the band Kasabian and said: "I heard about these guys. They have made a show about UK wrestling in the '80s, called 'Walk Like A Panther'. I know Rollerball Rocco, he's in it. He's my guy. I'll be his tag partner and sort them out for trashing hotel rooms under my name."
