For years Metallica has been amongst the toughest acts in hard rock, and now they've built a pair of sunglasses to rock hard in. James Hetfield has partnered with Sutro Eyeware to create the JH Sutro sunglasses, available in black or tortoise. The band's merchandise page calls them Hetfield's "ideal pair of sunglasses."
The four members of Metallica realize a world of fans and haters will be watching closely when they release their next studio album. In a way they're going back to basics, letting old music influence their new music. For his part, singer James Hetfield says that despite rehab and an artistic venture with Lou Reed, there is still plenty for him to be ticked off about.
Let he who is without rock cast the first stone! Metallica's James Hetfield recently took aim, figuratively and literally, at a member of the paparazzi. While on a nice little relaxing vacation over Christmas with his family in Punta del Este, Uruguay, Hetfeild was followed by photographers, which did not sit well the the Metallica frontman.
James Hetfield certainly knows how to put on a fierce face when he's rocking out onstage with Metallica. See how intense and ferocious he looks? The Cowardly Lion from 'The Wizard of Oz,' on the other hand, only can barely manage a meek, half-hearted growl.
And yet, from the right angle, these two radically different icons are total look-a-likes!
