Metallica’s James Hetfield: “Music Saved My Life”

“That is the ultimate connection…”

James Hetfield has answered the question of how it feels when a fan tells him that Metallica’s music has saved their life.

“I know what they mean, because it saved my life. So, yeah, join the club,” the frontman tells 100 3 The X Rocks in a new interview, filmed with all four members of the band ahead of their show at the Taco Bell Arena last month.

“That is the ultimate connection – something I’ve felt. Some fear, some anxiety, whatever it may be,” Papa Het continues. “My viewpoint of the world, I think, is totally off-kilter, it’s defective, and then when someone comes up to you and says that, ‘What you’ve written down or what you’ve created has helped me…’ that’s more of a connection.

“It’s like you haven’t spoken any words – you’ve just felt what that person is feeling, even though it might be a different feeling. Everyone loves it when someone’s telling their story. Someone’s saying, ‘That guy is singing to me,’ or ‘That song is about me.’”
