8/8/1992 James Hetfield Is Burned On Stage in Montreal By Pyrotechnics (video)

This happened twenty four years ago today. One of the biggest tours of the band’s career at that point in 1992. One year after the release of the Black album. They were on the road with Guns n Roses and everything comes to a halt with this horrific accident.

I thank the rock gods we still have James!

Also, Guns n Roses could have come up on stage and saved the show but they didn’t because Axl. We also learned that Canadians are capable of rioting.
