Metallica “Psyched” to be Inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame



Metallica is psyched about the band’s induction into the Rock and Roll hall of fame in Cleaveland later tonight. The band’s drummer Lars Ulrich tells People magazine “It’s mind-blowing. It’s very, very cool. We’re ready for this and we’re psyched.”

The legendary rock band, who has been together for 28 years, includes  45-year-old singer James Hetfield, 46-year-old guitarist Kirk Hammett and 44-year-old bassist Robert Trujillo. They will join the ranks of only a handful heavy acts when they take the Cleveland stage tonight.

Ulrich added, “Obviously they’ve been pretty selective with the harder rock bands that have gained entrance over the years. AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath – so that’s very good company to be in.”

Hammett adds, “We’re road dogs and road warriors. We’ve had our ups and down like everyone else, and we’ve lived a large portion of our lives through his band. To have this induction amidst all that we’ve been through is very cool.”

Other 2009 performer inductees include Jeff Beck, Little Anthony & the Imperials, and Bobby Womack. Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea will induct Metallica tonight – 8 p.m. and will air live on Fuse TV. Eminem will do the honors for Run-D.M.C.
