James Alan Hetfield is an American musician, singer, and songwriter known for being the co-founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and main songwriter for the American heavy metal band Metallica.
Before James Hetfield formed Metallica, his musical awareness was shaped in equal parts by classical music, Aerosmith and the desire to kill disco. James talks with Marc about the band's continued growth, his recovery from not only addiction but also anger issues, and his belief that bands need to reconcile no matter how bad the break-up. This episode is sponsored by Workaholics on Comedy Central, Colony on USA, Hint Water, and Stamps.com.
James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett from Metallica return to the Nerdist! They talk with Chris about ways to keep pizza warm while playing shows, how their kids feel about them being rock stars and playing shows as they get older. They also talk about their new album Hardwired...To Self-Destruct, how they come up with new songs and new sounds and their favorite comedy movies!
