James Hetfield health: 'I'm an old guy' - Metallica star's health worries and past addicti

“It was like, ‘Am I the family guy, or am I Lemmy Kilmister? Am I gonna go out a rebel, ‘F*** you!’ to the end? Do I do both? Can I?’ It all came flooding in.”

Balancing family life and working in the band has never been easy for Hetfield, even before growing concerns about ageing started to emerge. In the past, the vocalist has publicly battled alcohol addiction, for which he has been to rehab for, numerous times.

In a 2008 interview, Hetfield said that he used alcohol as a form of “escape” from the age of 16 until the height of his fame, after battling between the persona he put on while performing and the real-life person he was off stage.

Speaking about the effects of his addiction he said: “It started off as a cliche. ‘Hey, I feel more alive, I feel looser, I feel more comfortable talking to women. I can get on stage’ and all of this.
