Like so many of us younger generation metal heads, Metallica was one of the very first heavy metal bands I got into. The guitar riff mastery combined with their knack for writing catchy hooks, and long, epic songs that grip listeners from beginning to end was more than hypnotic to teenage JD.

The other night I had the absolute honor to pay tribute to these heavy metal titans by playing my all time favorite Metallica tune, “Creeping Death!” On top of getting to play my favorite Metallica tune, I joined the stage with the masterful talents of Fred Aching on drums, Bryan Beller on bass, Ira Black on guitar, and Paulie Z bringing to life the lyrics and metal vocals of James Hetfield!

Thank you Jessica Case for capturing this video of the performance!
