WATCH: Metallica's Kirk Hammett Falls On Stage

Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett has joined an elite club – musicians who take a tumble on stage.

The rocker slipped on a wet guitar pedal during a stadium show in Milan, Italy on Wednesday and fell backwards.

Hammett, who had just finished his “Moth Into Flame” solo, recovered in epic style and later poked fun at himself by posting videos of the fall on Twitter.

“Ummm- I slipped on my wet wah pedal,” he tweeted. “It rained so much I felt like I was playing guitar in the shower.”
