Profile Bio Text
James Alan Hetfield (born August 3, 1963) is the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and co-founder of the American heavy metal band Metallica. James is of German, English and Irish descent. Hetfield identifies Aerosmith as having been his main musical influence as a child, and has said that they were the reason why he wanted to play guitar. Other bands and musicians such as Motörhead, UFO, ZZ Top, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Saxon, Diamond Head, Johnny Cash, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, The Who, Hank Williams Jr., Kiss, Rush, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, Alice Cooper, Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Judas Priest, Ted Nugent, AC/DC, Blue Öyster Cult, Venom, Led Zeppelin, and Thin Lizzy also had a major influence on his musical tastes.
When he is not writing, singing or playing, Hetfield engages in a variety of outdoor activities including hunting, skateboarding, snowboarding, water and jet-skiing; sketching, working in his garage customizing cars and motorcycles, watching his favorite football team the Oakland Raiders, and going to hot-rod shows. He also collects vintage guitars—particularly those from 1963—and enjoys working on classic automobiles. Among his favorites are a `74 Chevy Nova, which he helped restore, and "The Beast", an all-terrain four wheel drive Blazer. Aside from these pursuits, Hetfield says he is often happiest spending time with his wife Francesca and their three children: Cali (June 13, 1998), Castor (May 18, 2000), and Marcella (January 17, 2002). Hetfield married his wife Francesca Tomasi on August 17, 1997.
