For my children and for me it has been a very unifying experience.
For his part, Joseph said he felt connected to the group after hearing Master of Puppets for two years, as part of his preparation to play the magnificent scene of stranger things.
After the chat, bassist Robert Trujillo invited Joseph, who has been playing guitar since childhood, to join them at the backstage and perform the 1986 hit.
I’m a little rusty, so I might need to take some lessons.
However, Joseph proved otherwise, as he was able to touch Master of Puppets with Metallica in an exceptional way, so much so that the group was impressed with his interpretation. Finally, the members gave him an autographed BC Rich guitar, just like the one used by Eddie Munson in stranger thingsas well as passes to each band event.
