(Talking about himself and his music before Metallica)
James Hetfield: I was in a band called Obsession. And then there was another band called Leather Charm. Then I met Lars.
(Talking about his drinking)
James Hetfield: If I'm hung over, I'd rather just stand on the side and play. We wanted to get a frontman but no one sang good enough so I just did both.
