Metallica’s lead vocalist and founding member James Hetfield has 55 candles on his birthday cake today.
When James was young, his parents were very strict Christian Scientists, and in accordance with their beliefs, strongly disapproved of medicine or any other medical treatment and remained loyal to their faith even as Jame’s younger sister Cynthia was dying from cancer. This upbringing became the inspiration for many of Hetfield’s lyrics later in his career with Metallica including the song, “The God That Failed” from their seminal 1991 album, Metallica. We all get our influences from somewhere and there not always the happiest.
Which of Metallica’s albums stands out the most in your opinion?
Happy Birthday James!! You can join AARP now….
