Black Sabbath legends Ozzy Osbourne and Geezer Butler joined Metallica Saturday on the band’s final night of 30th Anniversary shows at the Fillmore in San Francisco.

Robert Trujillo introduced Geezer as “My hero, Cliff Burton’s hero, Jason Newsted’s hero,” before they rocked some classic Sabbath tracks.

In a post to his website entitled “Congratulations, Metallica,” Geezer raved about the experience.

“I had the pleasure and honour of jamming Sabbra Cadabra / A National Acrobat, and then Iron Man / Paranoid (with Ozzy) with Metallica at their 30th Anniversary Met Club gig last night (Dec 10th) in San Francisco at the Fillmore,” wrote Butler on Sunday. “Great bunch of guys, and of course one of the world’s greatest bands.
