‘Stranger Things’ has amassed an insanely large following. One of the show’s stars, Joseph Quinn has emerged as a fan favorite after his role in Stranger Things 4. Quinn played Eddie Munson, the metalhead leader of the Hellfire Club. His iconic guitar scene made him an instant favorite among fans of the show.
On Thursday, Metal legends Metallica headlined the first night of Lollapalooza 2022 in Chicago’s Grant Park. While the band played many of their most recognizable hits like Enter Sandman, Nothing Else Matters and One, they would close out the blistering set with a rousing rendition of Master Of Puppets.
The smashing performance would also feature a cameo from the Stranger Things character Eddie Munson playing on the large screen behind them. The clip was taken from the hit show’s season four finale where Eddie, played by Joseph Quinn, 29, shreds a version of the song.
The electrifying link between Metallica and Stranger Things didn’t end there, as Quinn would go backstage before their headlining show and meet the band, and then jam out, for real, on Master Of Puppets. The meet and greet and jam session was all documented in a video that was posted on Metallica’s Instagram page.
Quinn says off the top of the video, “Hey there, I am backstage at Lollapalooza about to meet Metallica.” The British-born actor then proceeds to introduce himself to each of the band members that includes James Hetfield (vocal, guitar), Lars Ulrich (drums), Kirk Hammett (guitar) and Robert Trujillo (bass).
