Metallica’s iconic guitarist, Kirk Hammett posted a new and really sad photo of his old-time buddy, Rutger Hauer and sent his condolences to Rotger.

Rutger and KISS legend Simmons has played in the same movie, Wanted: Dead or Alive in 1986 and he was a well-known face in the Rock & Roll community.

Here is what Kirk said:

“Amidst all the press, there is sadness. This man-made so many movies so memorable. #rutgerhauer RIP”
