Back in 2003, Metallica visited San Quentin Prison to shoot their video for the title track of their St. Anger album. And in a new interview with Kerrang, guitarist Kirk Hammett revealed he left the shoot with an odd memento from one of the prison's most well-known inmates - Richard Ramirez, often labeled The Night Stalker during his '80s home invasion killing spree.
Ramirez was found guilty in 1989 of 43 crimes including 13 counts of murder and five attempted murders. The inmate was placed on Death Row for his actions and he died in 2013 from complications secondary to B-cell lymphoma. His story was revisited in Netflix's 2021 documentary, Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer.
