Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett slipped and fell during the band’s concert on Wednesday night in Milan, Italy. The incident happened during the guitar solo in the song “Moth Into Flame.” Hammett was soloing with his right foot on the guitar effects pedal board when he slipped and fell backwards, hitting the ground with his feet high above his head. Luckily he appeared uninjured, laughing off the spill for a moment before picking himself up and continuing to play the track. Immediately following the show, Hammett took to his Instagram to post video of his fall from two different angles, writing, “Ummm — I slipped on my wet wah pedal. It rained so much I felt like I was playing guitar in the shower.
