Metallica legend Lars Ulrich shared a photo of him and Metallica’s long-time followers Russel and Mike.

Yesterday, Metallica’s official Instagram page shared a photo of these two men and honored them. You can find the photo below.

Here is what Lars wrote:

“I know ‘Tallica already posted about our friends Russell and Michael, who followed us around and saw every single fucking show on the North American run.

I just wanted to add my two cents…
I so identify with you guys.

I used to drive behind Motörhead’s tour bus on Interstate 5, following them up and down California, roll along with DiamondHead all over the UK, go find Iron Maiden wherever they were playing around Scandinavia, hit up Deep Purple in Oregon and Washington, travel to far away to be in the same space as Oasis… And so on and so on.

Running off with a Rock ‘n’ Roll band is the coolest thing in the world!!
Fuck yeah Russell.
Fuck yeah Michael.”
