In a video shared to Metallica’s Instagram page on July 29, Joseph took viewers with him as he met the iconic band. And while it’s safe to say that Joseph (and his character Eddie) love Metallica, the admiration is mutual. In the clip, James Hetfield told Joseph he was a “huge fan” of the Netflix series.
“It’s been since season one,” James explained. “My kids and I have been a bonding experience for us.”
About the “Puppet Master”, Joseph noted that he had rehearsed the song for two years. He added, “I feel very close to you.”
