The classic line-up bassist of Metallica, Ron McGovney has responded to some questions about Metallica’s song ‘Hit The Lights,’ he got from the fans on Twitter.

On a fan’s question, Ron McGovney stated that he was at work when the ‘Hit The Lights’ was recorded, and James Hetfield played the bass guitar instead of him.

A fan named MetalDude1979 asked:

“Question. Did you actually play on the very first version of Metal Massacre 1 Hit the Lights (w/Lloyd Grant on final solo), I say you did….. another ‘person’ says you didn’t.”

Ron McGovney responded:

“James played my bass on it. I was at work.”

The same fan named MetalDude1979 responded:

“Friend wins. I lose. Thanks again. Straight to the point. You’ve answered 2 questions I’ve had for decades. Thank you.”
