My almost brush with greatness...I used to be a high rise window washer in Seattle. One of the buildings we did was the one that Lars Ulrich's dad lived in. We got on the elevator to go to the roof and Lars' dad got on the elevator. I have been a fan forever. Saw Cliff Burton with them before he passed. My buddy turned to Lars' dad and said: "I am a big fan of tennis and I recognize you." Lars' dad turned to him and said: "Fuck off. I just watched the Metallica documentary on MTV too."

I had to stop the podcast at the “ambalans had to came” line analysis banter. Laughing so hard, I couldn’t breathe. Amazing delivery by all involved.
