Kirk Hammett joined Judas Priest onstage during their set at the Louder Than Life music festival over the weekend (September 26) for a performance of The Green Manalishi (With the Two Pronged Crown).

For the track – which was originally written by late Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green, and later covered by Judas Priest for their 1979 album Hell Bent for Leather – the Metallica guitarist played his 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard, affectionately dubbed “Greeny” after its original owner, Peter Green. Check out fan-filmed footage of the performance below.
