Metallica Icon Kissed By Man In Stunning Photo


Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has shared rare photos from Metallica’s 2009 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, including a beautiful shot where a man kisses him on the side of the head.

Ulrich wrote, “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!

Here are a couple of snaps from that first night… recognize any of the familiar faces??


Metallica recently wrapped up the latest North American leg of their ‘Hardwired…To Self-Destruct’ tour, and they are set to tour in Australia with Slipknot later this year. The band intend to release a new album in a quicker turnaround than their last few records.
