They’re a match made in heavy metal heaven.
The 82-year-old retired aerospace engineer, who in June stunned the “AGT” audience with his earsplitting rendition of “Bodies,” is seen performing the same song alongside his heroes in video that’s going viral.
According to music website Consequence of Sound, Drowning Pool guitarist C.J. Pierce reached out to Hetlinger about joining the group onstage after seeing his AGT audition.
“It’s awesome to just see an 82-year-old man get out there and just belt out some metal,” Pierce told Loudwire. “Whether it was our song or any song, it was just killer to see him do that.”
Hetlinger, who switched up his more formal audition attire to wear a Drowning Pool T-shirt for Friday’s performance, has yet to comment on the show.
