The lead guitarist of Metallica, Kirk Hammett, recently posted a photo on his Instagram account and reminisced the time when his iconic band was featured in an episode of The Simpsons.
There is no doubt that Kirk Hammett is one of the most famous guitarists of all time and he actually ranked No.11 on Rolling Stone’s list of ‘The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.’ Nonetheless, he is also known for his side projects such as his voice works for various animated shows.
As you may recall, Hammett had done some voice work for the famous Metalpocalypse show, which was an animated comedy series about the world’s most successful death metal band. Just before his Instagram post about the Simpsons, he had shared a photo of his character in Metalpocalypse.
After that, he decided to remind his fans of the time when Metallica was ‘stuck in Springfield.’ It seems like during his quarantine, Hammett felt ‘a little animated’ and wanted to take a moment and remember how much fun they had while working on an episode of The Simpsons.
Here’s what Kirk Hammett said in the caption of his recent Instagram post:
“#fbf [Flash Back Friday] stuck in Springfield … guess I’ve been feeling a little animated these days 😉 Metallica & The Simpsons #metaltoons”
