METALLICA's KIRK HAMMETT 'Stabbed' By Surfboard — Out Of Commission For Two Weeks

METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett was "stabbed" by his surfboard while being tossed by a wave last Saturday, resulting in 6 stitches under his armpit, Hammett revealed in the latest video posted via the "Jump In The Studio" section of the band's official web site. Kirk is unable to play guitar for a week or two and is (jokingly, we presume) offering his services to sing, play percussion, tambourine or a little piano during the songwriting and recording sessions for the group's forthcoming CD.
