“Music has saved my life daily…” Watch James Hetfield’s wholesome appearance at the 2021 Little Kids Rock Virtual Benefit
Papa Het’s video appearance was also broken up by some truly wholesome footage of the metal legend and his previous work with the non-profit group in the past – having donated items to a Little Kids Rock auction, and even performed with some of the kids at 2013’s Little Kids Rock Rockin’ the Bay Benefit. There’s also some super-sweet interview clips with the frontman being quizzed by the kids, answering questions about who he looked up to when he was younger, what instrument he first started learning, and what it was like playing with the Little Kids Rock group.
“Music has saved my life daily,” James told the camera during the April 14 stream (via Blabbermouth). “It has been a passion of mine since the early, early times. Music has been an outlet for me, it has been a connection, it has been a best friend for me for my whole life.”
On the importance of music education, he continues, “Having an option for music, music at schools, I’m an advocate for having an opportunity and a place for people to at least explore that. And if they find it helpful, that’s great. And it could turn out to be a wonderful career. I’m here as an example of how music has saved lives.”
