Who Will Induct Metallica?

It's almost a foregone conclusion now that Metallica will be one of the five 2009 inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The band has not been shy about talking about the honor as if it is a done deal. Here, James Hetfield talks about who would be an appropriate person to introduce the band at the induction ceremony.
The Pulse of Radio asked frontman James Hetfield if the band has given any thought to who should induct them at the ceremony if they make the cut. "It's tough," he said. "We haven't really, you know, hit the ultimate person who we'd like to have do it. It's like you want someone who actually you've inspired, and you want someone who's charismatic, who can tell their story, but also you kind of want someone that people actually know who they are. You know, I was thinking, 'Well, why don't we just get, like, the uber-fan, you know, go up there and induct us, you know. How cool would that be?' So we're still going back and forth with all of that."
So, who would be an appropriate artist to induct Metallica (you can forget about an uber-fan doing it)? Dave Grohl seems like an obvious choice -- he's famous enough, he loves metal and he loves to talk about it. Who would be your pick?
