A Heavy Metal Happy Birthday James Hetfield of Metallica…
Vocalist/guitarist James Hetfield is the undisputed riff-lord of modern hard rock and heavy metal. Born on August 3, 1963 in Downey, California, Hetfield is also recognized as the king of downpicking and revered as one of the most charismatic front men in music, with a unique style and the ability to roar the likes of “Battery,” sing hits like “Nothing Else Matters,” and connect effortlessly with audiences via his personal, heartfelt, and humorous stage-banter.
Born in Los Angeles during 1981, but bred and nurtured in California’s Bay Area, Metallica (James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo) rewrote the heavy metal and hard rock playbooks, in the process becoming a worldwide musical phenomenon. With millions of album sales and streams in addition to thousands of sold-out venues around the globe, Metallica’s music has spanned the cult-classic prototype thrash of their 1983 debut album, Kill ‘Em All, to their wildly accessible hard rock classic, 1991’s The Black Album. Now approaching 40 years as a band, the guys continue to be one of the top touring acts in the world, with over two million fans attending the 150+ shows on their recent WorldWired tour.
