Metallica’s James Hetfield Opens Up About Being A Parent (VIDEO)


Road Recovery is an organization dedicated to helping young people battle addiction and other adversities. This is the fourth and final video in a mini series with Metallica’s James Hetfield, who is a big supporter of Road Recovery.

James is a longtime rockstar, performer and musician. With this comes traveling and weeks, if not months, on the road. He recalls turning 50 and reminiscing about having to balance between being a rockstar and his family. His family is most important, it’s unconditional love. Some parents can smother their kids with rules and boundaries; and some look the other way and give no attention. James talks about being in the middle of those two; finding a balance between showing you care but setting boundaries as a parent. It’s not easy, but James knows how important the balance is.
