Metallica's James Hetfield returns to rehab


Metallica has had to postpone their tour in Australia and New Zealand.

Part of the note from Lars, Kirk and Rob:

As most of you probably know, our brother James has been struggling with addiction on and off for many years. He has now, unfortunately, had to re-enter a treatment program to work on his recovery again.

Best wishes & hugs to James ~ and a reminder that I need to stay focused

That environment that he works and lives in has to be one of the toughest to try and stay sober.

I saw this earlier this morning. I'm a huge Metallica fan and am saddened about this news. I had just watched a clip of him from a couple of years ago talking about his sobriety and recovery - he sounded so strong. I wish him well.

I saw that this morning too. I like them a bit, but they are a little heavy for my everyday taste. Still, they are an interesting and talented group of individuals - I hope his rehab is helpful.

I hope he sticks with it.

He sounds like a cool guy.
