Metallica’s legendary drummer Lars Ulrich shared a recent photo on his official and verified Instagram page and praised The Rolling Stones with great words to the band.

Lars shared a great “On This Day” story and revealed how did they have a great time with Keith Richards and Mick Jagger.

Here is the caption of Lars’:

“14 years ago today, November 13, 2005, we returned to live-action after almost a year away by supporting an up-and-coming British blues band called @TheRollingStones over a coupla shows in San Francisco.

The St. Anger tour finished the previous November and after some much-needed chill time, we were gearing up to start thinking about the next creative phase when we got the call.

Up til that point, we had played with a lot of the bands that I had posters of up on my walls, including Deep Purple, AC/DC, Iron Maiden… and the chance to put a check mark next to rocking with The Stones at home in SF seemed way fucking fun.

The idea of playing a coupla shows supporting, going on stage early, nothing to promote, performing a shorter set, going to my own bed at home was definitely a vibe and was a cool way to ease ourselves into the making of the next record.

An inspiring and memorable experience!
