METALLICA's HAMMETT Talks About Performing With LOU REED; Video Available caught up with METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett just prior to the band's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 25th anniversary performance last night (October 30) at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

"We really like how things are sounding," he said just hours before the big show. "You're going to see me with the biggest shit-eating grin from here to here tonight when I'm onstage. One of my favorite moments was when Lou Reed turned around to the monitor guy [during rehearsal] and said, 'Hey, I need more Kirk Hammett in my monitor!' …. Lou Reed wants to hear more of me! That's right on."
