You may have been reading some reports and watching some YouTube video of Kirk accidentally kicking a balloon and knocking a child down. I want to set the record straight here. The child is the daughter of a Metallica crew member, and she was experiencing the joy of the balloons dropping. She was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and Kirk did not see her when he kicked the ball. The little girl did not receive any injuries, and she was not "sent flying several feet into the audience." Both the little girl and Kirk are fine, and are still friends. Thanks for everyone's concern and support.
