A child who played with the O’Keefe Music Foundation is the lookalike of stranger things character Eddie Munson during Metallica’s climactic scene on the Netflix show’s season four finale. Aidan Fisher, now a young adult, revealed his participation in a Facebook post during the July 4 holiday.

If the name “Aidan Fisher” sounds familiar to you, it’s because the world was made aware of this young shredder when he appeared in a viral video onstage performing with Steel Panther. He then moved on to “participate in several projects with the O’Keefe Foundation” (a charity that helps promote young musicians by putting them in music videos.) You can watch Aidan, then 11, perform with the parody rockers in 2013 in a video below.

Aiden is now 20 and seems to have landed a great gig in one of the most talked about music scenes on TV all year: stranger things “Puppet Master” fight scene. Fisher posted on July 1 on Facebook that he was thrilled to share “something that (he had) been sitting on for almost a year and a half”.

“On March 4, 2021, I had the opportunity to assist in what may become the most iconic guitar scene in TV/movie history. I got to meet and work with the Duffer Brothers and Joe Quinn (Eddie Munson) in the number one Netflix series worldwide, STRANGER THINGS! Gotta Go “The Upside Down” and voice Joe Quinn as Eddie Munson to shred Metallica’s Master of Puppets in the episode 9 of season 4. I’m so grateful for this amazing experience and it was so cool to see it come to life on screen!” – Aiden Fisher

And check out the Twitter photo below with the bright green tag that says “Eddie Guitar Hand Double” hanging from what looks like Eddie’s jacket (double) in the bottom right. Basically, when we see Eddie (played by actor Joe Quinn) ripping some close guitar parts during Metallica’s “Master of Puppets,” we’re actually looking at Aidan.

This isn’t the only example of “double handing” we’ve heard of lately to boost the credibility of a guitar scene in movies or TV. Steve Vai says he was Dave Grohl’s guitar double in a plan for Workshop 666. (Dave Grohl needed a guitar double!!! Crazy.)

The popularity of this scene and the Metallica song recently propelled “Master of Puppets” into the global top 50 on Spotify as well.
