The GTC would like wish James Alan Hetfield a Happy Birthday! We know your family situations as a kid made you an angry young man. Which lent itself to some of the best metal tracks of all time. Then you and your band had success and that seemed to anger you more. Which led to more great jaw cracking music. Then drugs and alcohol started to take over your brain uncontrollably causing you to be an even more angry human being. Causing the world to have to listen to “Lulu”.. (you were a sober man at the time of the recording but we still blame side-effects). We kid because we love….Happy 51st! “It’s all fun and games ’till someone loses an eye, then it’s just fun you can’t see.” – James Hetfield “I’ve discovered that sheer quantity doesn’t necessarily make for a heavier sound; if anything, overdubs make guitars sound mushier.” – James Hetfield “Authority pisses me off. I think everyone should be able to drink and get loud whenever they want.” – James Hetfield Happy 51st Birthday King of Metal!
