On November 18th, [my boyfriend] Kirk Hammett performed with Metallica in Tulsa, OK, on his 46th birthday. Some video was captured of the lead guitarist playing “Seek and Destroy” while the road crew ambushed him in celebration with silly-string.

Watch the video here below of the event and see how Kirk manages to continue playing the song — and doing the lead! — even though he and his guitar are covered with the sticky substance and he’s continuously getting strayed with the stuff. Now that’s talent.

Another video below is of Mercyful Fate frontman King Diamond performing with the “Mercyful Fate” medley with Metallica at the Ozzfest this summer.

One of the greatest pieces, if not the greatest piece, on Metallica’s 1998 double album of covers tunes, Garage Inc., was the track titled “Mercyful Fate.” The track was actually a medley of songs from Danish metal band: “Satan’s Fall,” “Curse of the Pharaoh,” “A Corpse Without Soul,” “Into the Coven,” and “Evil.”

Fate and Metallica go back a long way, all the way to the early 1980s when the two bands were touring the underground metal scene.

Check out the Right To Rock podcast’s interview with King, who talks about his Ozzfest guest appearance with Metallica.
