Published Nov 03, 2009When Guitar Hero: Metallica came out earlier this year, we can almost guarantee that Hulk Hogan was among those lining up to purchase it. After all, as the wrestling hero recently revealed, it's been a life-long dream of his to play bass for the legendary metal band.
In an interview with the Chicago Tribune, the Hulkster revealed he's been looking to play bass in a band since he hung up the four-string after high school. "When Metallica was looking for a bass player, I called and never heard a word back from them," he said. "I would have quit wrestling in a heartbeat to be the bass player for Metallica."
Hogan added that, besides Metallica, he also had his sights set on another timeless rock band. "I was in England presenting an award with Jerry Hall, Mick Jagger's ex, and she told me the [Rolling] Stones were looking for a bass player," he said. "I sent her a ton of merchandise that she asked for and said, 'Tell Mick I'm a great bass player.' I never heard a word back."
Hopefully someone will get the hint and return Hogan's phone calls. We just want to see him slap the bass!
