Metallica Jam With Stranger Things Actor Joseph Quinn: ‘Master Of Puppets’ Backstage At Lollapalooza

This year’s Lollapalooza in Chicago included an incredible backstage jam session between Metallica and Joseph Quinn from Stranger Things. The renowned rockers caught up with the British actor, whose metalhead character Eddie Munson revived interest in the band’s 1986 masterpiece “Master of Puppets” during season four of the Netflix sci-fi series, hours before Metallica’s headlining performance at Lolla on Thursday (July 28).

“I really like [Stranger Things]. Metallica leader James Hetfield tells Quinn that they had been since season one while sat backstage at the festival. “It’s a bonding event for me and my kids.” Quinn spent months honing the challenging metal guitar solo, and Hetfield acknowledged the actor’s diligence by thanking him for doing the song properly. Quinn informed the gathering, “I was listening to it nonstop for two years.” I really feel a connection to you folks.

The actor’s much-discussed scene occurs as the entire group works to defeat Vecna, the season’s main antagonist. To divert Vecna’s protecting fleet of bat-like monsters in the Upside Down, Eddie and Dustin (played by Gaten Matarazzo) plan to put on a full-fledged performance of “Master of Puppets,” with Quinn providing the electric guitar accompaniment.
