In a recent conversation with ‘Stranger Things’ actor Joseph Quinn, Metallica legend James Hetfield revealed that he has been an avid fan of the series since the premiere of its first season. ‘Stranger Things’ is a successful sci-fi horror drama series created by the Duffer Brothers that focuses on mysterious and supernatural occurrences in the fictional Indiana town of Hawkins. It depicts the effects of these events on multiple child and adult characters using horror and science fiction.
The premiere of the first season of ‘Stranger Things’ on Netflix occurred on July 15, 2016. The second, third, and fourth seasons of the series followed in October 2017, July 2019, May and July 2022, respectively. Eddie Munson, portrayed by Joseph Quinn, performed Metallica’s ‘Master Of Puppets’ in the season four finale, reviving the song’s popularity. Rob Trujillo’s son Tye Trujillo played guitar on ‘Master Of Puppets’ alongside Joseph Quinn. Tye received praise from his father and Kirk Hammett for this performance, and many Metallica fans admired his guitar skills. This scene was ultimately beneficial for both ‘Stranger Things’ and Metallica.
Joseph Quinn recently had the opportunity to meet the metal legends backstage at Lollapalooza. Quinn asked James Hetfield if he was a fan of the series during a brief interview with Metallica before they jammed together. Since the premiere of the first season, Hetfield and his children have been avid fans of the show, which serves as a bonding experience for the Hetfield family. During the conversation, Joseph Quinn posed the following questions to James Hetfield: “Are you an avid viewer of the show?” Hetfield’s reply was: “I am an avid fan. I have been since the first season. This has been a bonding experience for me and my children.” The video can be viewed below.
