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!
