Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett unloaded on Parada for ripoff prices in a new Instagram post.
“New @prada – Too bad all the true fans will have to rob a lot of graves to be able to afford this stuff.”
Lars Ulrich recently wrote on Instagram, “10 years ago today our induction into the @rockhall celebration began. To kick off the weekend, we threw a party….And what a party it was.. The idea was simple…Invite everybody who had a role or were in any way responsible for Metallica getting into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame.
Managers, producers, record company folks, touring crew, journalists, photographers, designers, assistants, radio & TV peeps, family, friends, the neighbor down the street who invited us in for a 6 pack one night 20 years ago … you get the picture!
By the time we had combed all corners of MetalliWorld, there were about 250 people on that list. … and you know what?? They all fuckin’ came to celebrate with us. Yes indeed… what a fuckin’ party!”
“….and so the next day, Saturday the 4th, we were inducted! The four of us, Cliff and Jason.
In the @RockHall. With all these legends and musical heroes of ours. Wow!! Total mindfuck. Flea did the honors and shared an incredibly powerful speech about being musical outsiders and having the disenfranchised music fans coming to seek solace with us at the edge of the mainstream.
We gave our thank you and appreciation speeches, connecting with each other and connecting with the audience… And then, at least in my case, off with most of the pieces of the monkey suit, and now let’s fucking rock..Puppets and Sandman were delivered to the unsuspecting gathered masses, and the evenings customary jam took shape in the form of the rock standard Train Kept a Rollin”, featuring a bunch of up and coming (!!!) guitar players… Jeff Beck, Joe Perry, Ron Wood, Jimmy Page… and the man himself Flea joining the four of us and Jason for a way metaled up version. Kirk was in guitar hero heaven and I was trying to hold down the fort to the best of my ability as I glanced across the stage, not only jamming with my brothers, but more guitar legends than you could shake a stick at… Did I use the word mindfuck?
How about total mindfuck ? Afterwords we joined our 250+ friends and guests for another round of way too late into the night shenanigans …And come Sunday morning, now as Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductees, the whole thing seemed both way cool and way surreal!!”
