Backstage pics and story by Jon Symons


Hi everybody! Yesterday was a great day! Metallica headlined the dutch Pinkpop festival and I was there. A while ago I got in touch with Chad, James Hetfield's guitar tech through the Fractal Audio forums. Both him and Justin really liked the tonematches and patches I made and the effort I put in them. They are also really thankfull to Fractal Audio for delivering amazing products and service so this was also a way for them to give something back to this community. Being a huge Metallica and Fractal Audio fan I also don't mind spreading the love for those 2 entities! So I will try to keep this story brief and fun!
