Joe Quinn from “Stranger Things” got to meet Eddie Munson’s heroes:  Metallica.  The band invited him backstage at Lollapalooza.

James Hetfield said, quote, “I’m a big fan of [the show] since Season One.  My kids and I, it’s been a bonding experience for us . . . Thanks for doing [our song] justice, by the way.  You definitely did.”

Joe said they’re all he’s been listening to for two years.  Metallica did a quick “Master of Puppets” jam session with him before giving him a replica guitar of the one he uses in the show.  They even signed it for him.

Lars Ulrich also joked, quote, “We’d like to make an announcement.  Metallica is now a five-piece, guys.”

Here is Eddie’s epic Stranger Things guitar solo!
