Diamond Head / “This was me,” says prosthetic leg owner Muttley

Muttley Von Erich has come forward as the owner of the prosthetic leg that Diamond Head singer Rasmus Bom Andersen was handed during last weekends Hammersmith Odeon show.

Muttley told MetalTalk that the Diamond Head, Girlschool, Uriah Heep and Saxon lineup was, for him, a pinnacle of live Heavy Metal.

“This was me, “Muttley said. “That has to be the second greatest show I have ever been to. The number one spot is currently the time Glenn Hughes made me cry tears of joy at Cardiff Tramshed in 2018.

“It was only a month after the amputation, and I didn’t have a prosthetic yet, but he gave me a wonderful shout out mid-show after I was lucky enough to meet him before the gig.

“Rasmus is an absolute Diamond, pun intended. After their set, when he brought it back, he helped me prank Girlschool with it. Jackie Chambers found it by her microphone stand, and her and Kim were a little confused as to how it had got there.

“Four HUGE bands all at the iconic Hammersmith. It really doesn’t get any better that that.

“Love and sausages, Muttley xx”
