Kirk Hammett has always seemed like a pretty cool guy and last night after Metallica‘s gig in Milan, Italy, he uploaded footage of himself falling on stage. Clearly happy to have a laugh at his own expense he wrote on his Instagram

“Ummm- I slipped on my wet wah pedal. It rained so much I felt like I was playing guitar in the shower – #slipperywhenwet #wahwahwah #metallicafamily #Metinmilan @metallica”

Milan was the fourth stop on Metallica‘s huge stadium tour through Europe with support from Ghost.
