It’s neat to see the children of famous musicians follow in the footsteps of their parents and continuing the family tradition of rocking out!

In other Metallica related news, the Metallica frontman and the band were recently featured on an episode of comedian John Oliver’s show Last Week Tonight. Also, a toilet shaped in the likeness of band drummer Lars Ulrich will be featured in a museum.

Speaking of Metallica frontman James Hetfield, there’s a possibility that the vocalist/guitarist might be on the TV show The Masked Singer.

On a recent episode of The Masked Singer, an individual who goes by the name of Thingamabob took to the stage and played “Wanted Dead Or Alive” by Bon Jovi. Thingamabob’s performance was well received by both the judges and the audience.

As Thingamabob was being interviewed on stage – the individual’s voice masked as to hide their identity – judge and comedian Ken Jeong spoke up about who he thinks the person under the costume is.

“This would be amazing if this was the lead vocalist of Metallica, James Hetfield. Because think about it for a second, he is huge. If you look at the clue package the bell reminds me of their famous song ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls.’”
