Thanks to the hit Netflix series STRANGER THINGS, the legendary thrash metal band METALLICA have gotten a renewed interest from fans. This is all due in part to the show’s character “Eddie”, played by Joseph Quinn who goes down in a blaze of glory playing Metallica’s classic tune, “Master Of Puppets”.
In response to that song being played on the series, the song has made it onto the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the first time ever. That scene featuring the death of “Eddie” has become a fan favorite from the show.
In a great case of life imitating art, Joseph Quinn (Eddie) got to meet the iconic band in Chicago this past Friday where they would headline Lollapalooza for the night. Quinn was even invited to jam with the band during their warmup for the show. Get more details below.
