In a recent interview with Metal Injection, The Sword guitarist Kyle Shutt talked about his experience of working along with Metallica members back in 2009 and claimed the band’s iconic guitarist Kirk Hammett had the best weed he’d ever smoked.
As you might recall, back in 2008, the legendary thrash metal band Metallica started their tour named World Magnetic Tour in support of the band’s ninth studio album, ‘Death Magnetic.’
In some of the performances during the tour between 2008 and 2010, The Sword supported Metallica. Since they got to spend some time together at the backstage during their tour, the members of Metallica and The Sword joined each other for some extracurricular activities.
Recently, The Sword guitarist Kyle Shutt joined an interview with Metal Injection and talked about his experiences of working with the members of Metallica during the World Magnetic Tour. During the interview, Kyle asserted that the Metallica star Kirk Hammett had the best weed he had ever smoked and its name was ‘Romulan.’
Here’s what Kyle Shutt stated about the weed Kirk Hammett had:
“He had this shit called ‘Romulan‘ one time, which was, probably, the best weed I ever smoked. But if it ever was a venue where our dressing rooms were wall-to-wall attached to each other, they would just ask that we didn’t smoke in our dressing room so that no smoke would get in their room and bother them. And, we were totally respectful of that. No bones about it.
Furthermore, Shutt mentioned another type of wee named ‘God’s Gift‘ which almost got he and his bandmates in trouble since Metallica members warned them not to smoke in their room and continued:
“We weren’t even smoking it. We were just hanging out backstage, breaking it up, to take all the stems out. They came and knocked on our door like ‘Hey guys, you know you can’t smoke in here, what are you doing?’
And we’re like, ‘We’re not even smoking it, we’re just breaking it up.’ And they looked at the weed and they were like, ‘Wow, anyway, would you mind taking that outside?‘”
