En liten varm story om riffmeister Hetfield!

Artikel från Sanrafael.patch.com. Alan Rosen som jobbar i Bananas At Large (musikaffär) berättar om ett kul minne.

Remember in the movie Wayne's World, how they joke about everyone playing "Stairway to Heaven" at the music store so they put up a sign asking them to please stop? What's the song people play the most when they come in and want to try out a guitar.

AR: "Enter Sandman" by Metallica. It's that one rift in the beginning. There's a great story around that.

Tell it to me.

AR: There's a kid named Bobby. He's a nice young man who's probably 13 or 14 who loves to hang out here. His mom literally drops him off here. It's like day care. One day James Hetfield (the guitarist from Metallica) was here and Bobby was struggling with that riff. He just couldn't get it. And James walks over and does a big bear hug from behind him so he can position his fingers. He says: "Here, this is how it's done kid." Then he sees Bobby's cell phone and says. "This would be a good time to get a picture." So, he gets the picture and it's… it's amazing. The look on Bobby's face. In one small move, James gave him the inspiration and did for Bobby what somebody probably did for him when he was a kid.
