Normally when we think of celebrities known for their intelligence, people like Elon Musk and Neil deGrasse Tyson come to mind.

Among those on the lineup was Metallica drummer, Lars Ulrich, who was raising money for the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic in San Francisco, CA.

At the beginning of the game, Regis Philbin tosses some softball questions at the drummer to raise his total quickly to $4,000. But despite some of the questions being music-related, they got increasingly more difficult.
