Heavy Metal Giants Metallica performed Star Spangled Banner before San Francisco Giants took on LA Dodgers at the AT&T Park on Friday, May 3.
James played rhythm (as he usually does) and Kirk played lead, but he obviously forgot his wah-wah pedal at home.
Compare Metallica's rendition of the anthem with that of Kirk's mentor, Joe Satriani.
Same ball park, few years earlier and you know what? Satriani didn't forget his wah-wah pedal.
