Local bassist humbled by shout-out from Metallica

“When one of your favorite bands tells you that you're one of their favorite bands, its pretty humbling,” says Fishtown’s Liam Wilson, who’s been freaking out since he learned that Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich said he loved Wilson’s prog-metal band Dillinger Escape Plan. “One band that really excites me is the Dillinger Escape Plan. I think they’re great,” Ulrich said at a press conference this week after news that Metallica will soon be inducted in the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame. Wilson, who plays bass in Dillinger, just met Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo at the band’s recent gig at the Wachovia Center and said Trujillo, formerly of Suicidal Tendencies, was a “super classy dude.” Wilson says he and some Dillinger band mates are going to catch Metallica in Newark next week and hope to meet their fan Ulrich.
