Metallica Honored To Replace Green Day
Green Day recently ceased all live and promotional appearances in support of their newly-released album "¡Uno!" following a recent onstage meltdown by frontman Billie Joe Armstrong in Las Vegas, which resulted in the singer currently seeking treatment for substance abuse.
"We got a message about two days ago asking us if we're able to fill in for Green Day, because Billie Joe was having some issues," guitarist Kirk Hammett tells Fuse TV. "We discussed it between the four of us and we all said, 'Yeah, it would be great thing for us to do and it would also be great to help out Billie Joe, 'cause he's a friend of ours and we love Green Day. If we can help them out in any way possible, we're always happy to do it, 'cause we love those guys. It's actually an honor for us that they approached us and asked if we can fill in. So we're doing it, and I'm really excited about it." more on this story
