James Hetfield Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

His mom was a light opera singer and his dad was a truck driver. They were both severe Christian Scientist adamantly rejecting any modern medical care or intervention. Metallica’s song “The God That Failed” is according to his mom’s passing. Hetfield is an enthusiastic hunter and skilled skateboarder. Hetfield is not any stranger to alcoholism common to Rock & Roll stars, but now is a proud straightedge family man having an effective marriage and three children. He successfully finished rehabilitation in 2001 and has been clean and sober ever since.

Hetfield is the primary song writer for Metallica. Up before the mid-1990’s Hetfield recorded all the rhythm tracks and a lot of the harmony tracks. The singer joined the group after reacting to your classified ad that Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich had set — eerily reminiscent of the means by which the group U2 got its beginning.

Hetfield’s net worth is an astonishing $175 million dollars, which can be a serious homage to how successful Metallica continues to be through recent years. In 2009 all the members past and current were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Hetfield present house is in San Rafael California — a 6 bed, 6.5 bathroom, 7,488 square feet palace that was bought for $4.45 million. Hetfield also possesses a lot of the encompassing wilds giving much of it to the county for trekking trails.

Hetfield’s major love yet is classic custom autos. Being a west-shore man the kind of classic car Hetfield is most into are customs. He’s notoriously known to possess a 1936 Auburn Boat Tail Speedster 852. Hetfeild’s custom autos have entered esteemed Good Guys competitions and come out on top not once but twice — an honor that many never attain in a very long time. First his Voodoo Priest won most amazing custom in the year 2012 and lately his custom Black Pearl won Custom of the Entire Year in the Good Guys show in Pleasant on, CA. All told it isn’t understood precisely exactly how many cars the Metallica front man possesses, but it’s considered quite a couple. He favors 30’s and 40’s design stretched roadsters and sedans including a 37 Zephyr whole with modern AC and suicide doors he uses at times as a motorist.

1[his thoughts following the death of Metallica bassist Cliff Burton] The only thing I could think was: The band? No way! There ain't no band. The band is not the band right now. It's just three guys. ]
2[on if the Metallica song "Ride the Lightning" was about capital punishment] Not exactly; I believe in capital punishment, but it was more like the idea of being strapped in the electric chair even though you didn't commit the crime. That song, and others on the record, were about not being able to escape a situation. [Lars Ulrich and I are both control freaks, and the idea of not being able to get out of a bad situation is a fear we both have.
3[about the Metallica / Guns N' Roses tour] Did I enjoy the tour? It was different. It was a good idea. We really had no idea what was going to come with it. They're a different type of band--and I use the word "band" loosely. It's a guy and some other guys. We were out to show people that there was something a little more progressive and hardcore than Guns N' Roses. And to go about it our way. But it was hard going on, dealing with [Axl Rose] and his attitude. It's not something we'd want to do again.
4Regret? That's a screwed-up word.
5[Why Metallica survived after the death of Cliff Burton] Knowing Cliff's attitude, he'd kick our butts if we quit.
6If I hadn't had music in my life, it's quite possible I'd be dead and I'd much rather be alive.
7There is something powerful in Metallica, a will, a drive.
8There is one Metallica. We have many styles, it's called Metallica.
9[at the end of concerts] Thank you, friends!
1Recording the next Metallica record. [February 2006]
2They are in the tour "Madly In Anger With The World Tour", for United States. Before entering a concert they record a small session of rehearsal with songs that doing for their new album, that they begin to record in the studio in January of 2005. [May 2004]
3Preparing for release of "St. Anger", first new Metallica album in five years. [April 2003]
4He is on holiday for some time before starting the recordings of the new album. [March 2005]
5He releases new album Death Magnetic with his band Metallica. [September 2008]
6In 1992 Hetfield was badly burned at the infamous Guns N' Roses / Metallica Stadium Tour in Montreal, Canada, when he accidentally stepped into a pyrotechnic blast. After 17 days he was able to continue vocals with Metallica, but was forced to temporarily give up his guitar duties to a band technician until he was able to make a full recovery.
7Lives in San Rafael, California.
8He has English, and some Scots-Irish, ancestry. While most of his family has lived in the United States for many generations, his maternal grandmother was English (born in London, England).
9His musical inspirations are Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent, Venom, Nick Cave, Rocket from the Crypt, The Misfits, Black Sabbath, Diamond Head.
10Children: (with wife Francesca) Cali Tee Hetfield, (b. June 13, 1998 at 8 lbs 4 oz & 20 inches in San Francisco, California), Castor Virgil Hetfield, (b. May 18, 2000 at 9 lbs 6 oz & 22 1/2 inches in San Francisco, California) and Marcella Francesca Hetfield (b. January 17, 2002 at 8 lbs 5 oz & 21 1/4 inches in San Francisco, California).
11Suffered second-degree burns through a stage pyrotechnic accident while touring in Montreal, Canada, 8 August 1992.
12His wife is from Argentina and is a former costumer for his band Metallica.
13He originally wrote the 1991 hit "Nothing Else Matters" as a personal song, not intended to be played in front of anyone else, but Metallica drummer and band mate Lars Ulrich convinced him to use it for a Metallica song, which he did.
14Metallica's hit 1991 song "Enter Sandman" was inspired by fears and nightmares Hetfield had as a child.
15Metallica's 1991 song "The God That Failed" was based on the death of Hetfield's mother, because as a Christian Scientist she believed that her faith in God alone would be able to save her from cancer.
16Vocalist and guitarist for the heavy metal band Metallica.
17Is a skilled hunter.
18Member of The National Rifle Association.
