Buy Metallica's 72 Seasons Double Vinyl

Bassist/vocalist Robert Trujillo accepted the award on behalf of the band:

All right, wow, incredible! I just want to say that Lars, James, and Kirk could not be here because they're with their families, and as you know families are everything to all of us. That comes first. I live in Southern California, so it's a little easier. 

We want to thank Greg Fidelman our incredible producer and our recording team, amazing. One of the best teams ever. 

This is like family when you're making an album like this, you're jamming you're collaborating, the spirit of 72 Seasons, which is your youth, and creating music together. Keep those instruments in your hands. Let's keep the youth making music and keep the dream alive! Thank you so much!
