Metallica supply street performer with new kit after his drums are stolen!

Bloody Metallica are probably the biggest metal band ever to exist. They are loved by f**ken millions of people, and they’ve been touring the world, rocking audiences for over forty years. With all that in mind, it’s easy to think they might forget what it’s like to be a small, struggling musician. Turns out that’s not the case. Yeah, nah, no way. Check this s**t out…

A few weeks back, the legendary band stepped up to the plate and supplied a down-on-his-luck street performer with a new drumkit. When Los Angeles-based street performer Sheriff Drumman had his gear flogged, Metallica stepped in to help him out.

Before we go on with the finer details, though, we probably need to back up a bit. Drumman is well-known in Southern California for rocking the drums on the back of a pickup truck outfitted with a sound system and lighting.

When he woke up to find out some c**t had pinched the whole set-up, he was understandably distraught. He took to GoFundMe to crowd-source funds for a replacement. On the page, he said:

“I woke up this morning and my entire music truck was stolen from in front of my home. The truck included my drums, stage lights, sound system, fog machines, generator. I’ve been drumming on the back of my truck driving throughout the city of Los Angeles California traveling to Vegas and every city that hits in between. Putting a smile on people’s faces for the last 5 years Growing my business from complete nothing and to … all of my things are gone.”

He set his goal at $70,000, but when he got to $20,000, the boys from the Bay Area gave him a nice surprise. A new drum-kit.

Drumman was understandably stoked. “Man, thank you guys so much,” he said, according to LA’s NBC 4. “Thank you for taking the time and the resources to support and help what I do. I love you for that.”

Yeah, nah, this is f**ken rad.

Final thought: We bloody love this. Obviously, the kit alone might be small-fry to a band as big as Metallica, but they’ve made a real difference to someone who needed a bit of a hand-up. Yeah, nah, this is great stuff, and we reckon that if there was more kindness like this in the world, we’d be on our way to having an awesome f**ken planet.
