Metallica's Kirk Hammett

Watch Metallica’s Kirk Hammett Flub “Nothing Else Matters” Intro At 2022 ‘Boston Calling’ Festival


Even the most tenured of metal musicians have fallen prey to a guitar intro over the years, no matter how many times they’ve played the song prior. The latest high-profile victim was Metallica‘s lead guitarist Kirk Hammett during the band’s headlining set at the ‘Boston Calling‘ festival this past Sunday, May 29th.

In the below fan-filmed footage you can watch him botch “Nothing Else Matters” and promptly own up to his flub, apologizing to the crowd soon after. If you’re curious, the thrash metal legends have at least 1255 documented live performances of “Nothing Else Matters” under their belt thus far, with it being their eighth most performed track of all-time.
