Metallica’s 1995 Live Motorhead tribute posted online.

Footage has been posted online of Metallica‘s legendary 1995 performance at the Whisky-A-Go-Go in Los Angeles, where the band donned long black-haired wigs and performed as The Lemmys. The group played a set of Motorhead songs in honor of frontman Lemmy Kilmister‘s 50th birthday. Drummer Lars Ulrich recalled to So What! magazine, “As we walked toward the Whisky stage (for the first time since supporting Saxon in 1982), the f***ing look on people’s faces, classic. I started ‘Overkill’ and immediately swallowed half the wig, but who gives a f***, and off we went.” (Blabbermouth)

The Whisky A Go Go has uploaded in-house video footage of the performance.See it here:
