Hulk Hogan (née The Hulkster) is a wrestler, actor, dad and Thunderlips. But you knew that. What you didn’t know is that he is “a great bass player” (his words!). Yesterday Hogan reveled that he once tried to join the Rolling Stones by getting Jerry Hall to put in a good word with Mick Jagger. Didn’t work. Ever the persistent bassist, Hogan also offered his talents to Metallica. His calls were never returned. “I would have quit wrestling in a heartbeat to be a bass player for Metallica,” Hogan said. We would quit our jobs in a heartbeat too if it meant seeing Hogan put Lars Ulrich in a headlock.
