In 1998, a fan of Metallica had the opportunity to sing “Creeping Death” along with the live band on stage and it did not disappoint.
The young man’s name was Aaron and his dream came true when he participated in a program on MTV in the United States that hosted the group led by James Hetfield.
As you can see in the video at the end of the article, the then teenager was not intimidated when called upon by presenter Matt Pinfield, who said: “One of the highlights of each live set is ‘Creeping Death’ – is that what you want to hear? ”.
“That’s what I want to hear, man!,” Aaron responds enthusiastically. In the aftermath, Hetfield jokes that he doesn’t know the words, while Pinfield retorts, “I think Aaron, maybe you need to go up and help him. What do you think?”
The young man then takes on the vocals for a confident performance of the track on the album Ride the Lightningfrom 1984. Did well!
At the time, Metallica released the albums Load It is Reload
As Loudersound recalled, Metallica was preparing to embark on its tour Poor Re-Touring Me in support of albums Load (1996) and Reload (1997).
In those times, MTV represented a great promotion window for the biggest bands and the broadcaster managed to place Metallica inside a warehouse to record in the presence of a lively audience, who also witnessed acoustic covers of Misfits It is Diamond Head.
