Rockers Cheer On Metallica

MICHELLE BRANCH and LISA MARIE PRESLEY were among the unlikely list of stars who turned up to show their appreciation for heavy metal giants METALLICA.

The rock quartet took to the stage in Hollywood on Saturday (03MAY03) for the taping of their MTVICON show - an annual event where celebrity fans pay homage to a legendary act.

KELLY OSBOURNE, PUDDLE OF MUDD, ex-GUNS N' ROSES members DUFF MCKAGAN and MATT SORUM, and LINKIN PARK's CHESTER BENNINGTON all turned up to cheer on the NOTHING ELSE MATTERS hitmakers.

The show included performances by AVRIL LAVIGNE and SNOOP DOGG, along with SUM 41, KORN, LIMP BIZKIT, two members of STAIND and Metallica - with new bassist ROBERT TRUJILLO in tow.

KORN singer JONATHAN DAVIS says, "They did exactly what we did now in this time back when they first started. We have always looked up to them and in the sense that they have paved the way. We are just here to pay respect tonight."

Bennington adds, "I was invited to come down and do something tonight and I just jumped at the chance to show my appreciation for the band. To try to do my little thing and say thank you for all the music."
