Happy 51st birthday, Mr. James Hetfield!!!

A big happy birthday goes out to one of my favorite musicians. I love James Hetfield and Metallica! I don’t care what the haters and their doubters think. Metallica have always been and will always be great. They’ve always been my favorite band!

I’m glad I finally got the opportunity to see Metallica live myself during the “Death Magnetic” tour.

Happy birthday, James and thanks for the great music! Long live Metallica \m/

I’m impressed with Hetfield’s cover of Beatles, “In My Life”… screw the haters…

I think James Hetfield did an incredible job performing acoustic by himself which you don’t see that much. As usual whenever it comes to James Hetfield and Metallica, there’s always mixed opinions. People will start being opinionated jackasses and all that shit. What’s new when it comes to Metallica? This isn’t Metallica. This is James Hetfield solo!!!

I think he did a great job.

It showed that he has talent and he can really sing. No lip syncing there at all. He’s got the good head voice and sings the high notes well. He also sung with heart and passion. It also shows that he is more than just metal and heavy music. This is a softer side of him.

I think James should consider doing a solo career. He should do a solo album. I don’t see him doing that anytime soon since he’s heavily focused on Metallica but who knows. Maybe James will consider a solo career whenever Metallica is done?

Haters are gonna hate. I never listen to ’em.

Happy 50th Birthday, Mr. James Hetfield

Today, James Hetfield, rhythm guitarist and lead singer of Metallica (also one of the band’s main founders) turns into the big, 5-0 today. He may look a little older but he’s a lot younger.

Yes, Metallica gets a lot of hate and disrespect in this day and age. I still respect the band. Why? Simply because Metallica has a lot of balls and they aren’t afraid to do what they want to do. I don’t understand all the hate for Metallica. Yes, they sued Napster, yes they moved on from their speed metal music and went alternative, yes they aren’t good with sound production on their albums but no matter what you think of Metallica… they had a 30 year long career and they are the kings of metal. I don’t understand all the hate. They seem like real good dudes to me. I mean they reconciled with Megadeth, Slayer and even Napster’s Sean Parker. All 3 who Metallica had past feuds with. Sure enough, the fans will always find something new to hate about Metallica.

Metallica are a band just like all the others. They just want to get together and play music. They’re not gonna stay in the same style of music forever. All bands want to change and evolve. They all do. I stuck with Metallica through all the their albums even with the “Load/Reload”, “St. Anger”, “Lulu”, albums. I even liked those albums. Metallica will always have my back and my support. I had the opportunity to see them live in concert finally and it’s a night I’ll never forget.

People want to act like these guys are the most hated band in America but they’re just regular dudes and they’re just musicians. That is all! Anybody who hates Metallica just wants to be a bandwagon jumper and side with popular opinion. There’s nothing wrong with liking a band everybody hates. They’re still great songwriters.

Happy Birthday, James. Now start making the follow-up album to “Death Magnetic”. We had to wait a long time for “Death Magnetic”… now don’t force us to wait a long time for the next record. Metallica doesn’t spend a lot of time in the studio ’cause they’re more worried about touring around the world than writing and recording. Seriously, these guys do so much touring. It’s incredible. That’s another reason I respect them. They tour more than any other rock band out there.

Long live Metallica!!! \m/ I’m looking forward to their “Through the Never”, big screen 3D movie too. I’ll probably go see it!

Report: James Hetfield writes open letter to fans on Metallica.com…

James Hetfield, Metallica’s main man, is back home in the states. He wrote an open letter to his fans on Metallica.com apologizing that Metallica had to cancel the show in Stockholm due to illness.

James, even makes fun of himself about it by jokingly saying, “even an oyster could have taken me” and “Swedish oyster cult” would be thrown off the tour…more cowbell…more barf bags! LOL!

Report: James Hetfield released from hospital, reported to have food poisoning…

Above is a recent picture of James Hetfield leaving a hospital in Sweden. James is seen waving to the camera, and wearing all black clothing. James and the rest of the band in Metallica, had takeout dinner from an Indian food restaurant in Stockholm. James must of ate something that wasn’t too good. Hetfield says he is fine, it wasn’t serious.

Blabbermouth reports:

That’s a sigh of relief, glad he is okay. I’m pretty sure they won’t be eating Indian food ever again now.

Report: James Hetfield to Metallica haters, “Get the hell off of my property, you stupid kids!!!!!”….

With the look of James Hetfield’s face in the pic above, I’m sure that’s what he looked liked when he found out that his new home in California have been vandalized by locals.

James Hetfield the Metallica frontman bought new land in 1999 so he can build a huge home, studio, etc. in the Marin Hills of Marin County in Cali. The property used to be a popular biking and hiking trail where a lot of people like to go through. Hetfield boarded up the home with a huge electric barbed wire fence that almost looks like a prison fence. It was Hetfield’s way of keeping bikers and hikers off his property while the metal rocker is not there. James Hetfield angered locals who loved to use that trail but they can’t since Hetfield now owns the property.

The property had been vandalized with the words “SHAME DISGRACE” written on the fence. Hetfield has been nice to the local people before by donating 400 acres of the land to the locals to use some of the trails.

James Hetfield himself has not yet responded to this controversy.

Blech, the local people had nothing to complain about. They are just probably a bunch of Metallica haters trying to get the band out of their peaceful town. It’s Hetfield’s property, if he owns it, he has the right to do what he wants with it. Get over it people!
