Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich recently took to Instagram to reflect on the band's experience supporting The Rolling Stones back in 2005:
14 years ago today, November 13, 2005 we returned to live action after almost a year away by supporting an up-and-coming British blues band called @TheRollingStones over a coupla shows in San Francisco. The St. Anger tour finished the previous November and after some much-needed chill time, we were gearing up to start thinking about the next creative phase when we got the call. Up til that point, we had played with a lot of the bands that I had posters of up on my walls, including Deep Purple, AC/DC, Iron Maiden... and the chance to put a check mark next to rocking with The Stones at home in SF seemed way fucking fun. The idea of playing a coupla shows supporting, going on stage early, nothing to promote, performing a shorter set, going to my own bed at home was definitely a vibe and was a cool way to ease ourselves into the making of the next record. An inspiring and memorable experience! #wanna
