Mastodon Guitarist Introduced Himself To Metallica By Putting His Dick In Lars Ulrich’s Pocket


Mastodon bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders was interviewed by Artistdirect and shared a particularly memorable tale about the groups first meeting with Metallica. Sanders recalled the introduction:

“It was a European festival. All I can remember is we were so excited our guitar player Bill [Kelliher] walked over to Lars Ulrich, whipped his dick out and put in Lars‘s pocket [Laughs]. I can’t believe we’ve done so many tours with them since. In the following years, we played Wembley Stadium in London in front of a hundred thousand people with them. I just remember being so happy.

Metallica is a giant reason why I picked up the bass and why I’m where I’m at today. Now, we’re supporting them in front of a hundred thousand people at Wembley Stadium. That was magnificent. This summer we get to play another string of dates with them. It’s just Mastodon and Metallica across Russia for a couple of shows. If you flashback and told 13-year-old Troy this information, my head would’ve exploded.”

Mastodon are currently on tour with Clutch, and will release their 2009’s “Crack The Skye” will be reissued on baby blue vinyl on June 02nd.
