(TeamRock) Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo recalls a funny moment when he was flying home after completing work on their new album "Hardwired… To Self Destruct," when a fellow passenger talked to him about Metallica - but didn't realize who he was.

He says "I'm getting on the plane and Hardwired had just been featured all over the nation. I sit down next to this guy, who offered me the free drink coupon.

"I had a Metallica jacket on and he said, 'Oh, I heard they released their new album today.' I said, 'No, I think it was just one song.' He goes, 'Did you hear it?' and I'm like, 'Yeah, it's good.'

"I look down, he's got his headset on watching the video on his iPhone. He doesn't know I'm in the band. He's just going, 'Oh man, this is really good.' That was a classic moment." Read more here.
