METALLICA Fan Appears On U.K. Quiz Show 'Mastermind'

A METALLICA fan by the name of Ian Volante appeared on the legendary U.K. quiz show "Mastermind", where contestants face an inquisition on their chosen specialized subject.

Volante took his place in the "Mastermind" chair on March 6, 2009 to answer questions about METALLICA.

Watch footage of his appearance below.

"Mastermind" is widely regarded as the most rigorous and intellectual British quiz show, and, after 36 years, has become one of television's most enduring successes.

"Mastermind" was the brainchild of TV producer Bill Wright, a former RAF gunner, who drew on his wartime experience as a P.O.W. in Germany of answering three questions — name, rank and number — to create the "Mastermind" ritual of contestants being asked their name, occupation and specialist subject.
