I'mmmmm Back!! Ok...the choice of Flea makes sense. Obviously he's a friend and has a lot of respect for Metallica as a band. For all of u who were two and three years old or not born when Kill Em All came out, Please keep in mind these bands go back decades. Flea is an awesome choice for this honor. He will bring it like only Flea can. This night will be incredible and I can't wait!!

MHD: RUN-DMC are the Kings of Rock, there is none higher. Don't you remember what they did with Aerosmith? They started the whole thing along with the Beastie Boys
