Watch Metallica’s Kirk Hammett slip and fall on his wah pedal during Milan show

Posted by on May 8, 2019

Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett slipped and fell on his wet wah pedal earlier tonight (8th) in Milan, Italy. The guitarist was in the middle of a solo during “Moth Into Flame,” and ended up losing his balance causing him to fall backwards. Despite Hammett’s sudden plunge, he picked himself right back up and was ready to continue performing. The guitarist shared the below clip of his tumble via Instagram and explained how it was raining so much that he felt like he was performing in the shower.
