"I played at a benefit concert with them in LA for homeless people," Hütz tells Spinner. "[Rage Against the Machine guitarist] Tom Morello texted me and asked if I wanted to play some acoustic songs. I did my acoustic set and I was drinking downstairs afterwards with other musicians when Tom came down and said, 'Do you know 'Kick Out the Jams' by the MC5?' And I said, 'Who doesn't, right?' so he said, 'Would you like to come up and play it with us?'"
Hütz continues, "So I came out on stage and it's [Motorhead's] Lemmy on bass, [ex-Guns N'Roses'] Slash on guitar, Tom on guitar, the drummer from Slipknot and Wayne Kramer from MC5 on vocals as well as the rapper from Cypress Hill and we played 'Kick Out the Jams' and I thought, This is a truly surreal moment of life!"
And if the onstage activities lived up to Hütz's expectations, the backstage antics of some of the performers simply confirmed their legendary reputations.
Explains Hütz, "Afterwards, Lemmy made me a drink and he said, 'Ah, you're alright! Have a drink!' and I took one sip and I decided to give it to someone else! I think it was a Long Island Ice Tea with a serious imbalance of ingredients!"
