METALLICA Guitarist Kirk Hammett Keeps Playing After Falling Onstage
Accidents can happen on shows and even legendary musicians aren't immune from such moments. That's exactly what happened to Metallica's Kirk Hammett who tumbled down the stage after slipping on his wet guitar pedal.
The incident happened during a show in Milan while Kirk was playing his hard-hitting "Moth Into Flame" solo. He wrote on Twitter, "Ummm- I slipped on my wet wah pedal. It rained so much I felt like I was playing guitar in the shower."
But a little slip didn't faze the guitarist whose mother is of Filipino descent! He still managed to continue playing. Check out the close-up clip Kirk shared via social media here:
