Metallica singer James Hetfield says he’s moving out of San Francisco [VIDEO]


Ever heard of the band, Metallica? Probably.

But what you might not know is that the lead singer and co-founder of the intense heavy metal group, James Hetfield, has a pretty solid head on his shoulders. He believes in the importance of diversity. He believes people should be allowed to have opinions and different beliefs. But he also thinks that for a country to thrive on those beliefs, they can definitely pick and choose who they want to allow to be diverse and unique.

He has spent the last few decades living in California. He lives specifically in the San Francisco Bay Area. It has been his home for quite a while now. And yet it does not seem to feel like home to him anymore and the reason why should not surprise anyone here.

As someone who has lived in California, I understand why he decided he could not take it anymore. He explained that the attitude of the locals was exclusive and elitist.

‘I kind of got sick of the Bay Area, the attitudes of the people there, a little bit,’ Hetfield said.

‘They talk about how diverse they are, and things like that, and it’s fine if you’re diverse like them. But showing up with a deer on the bumper doesn’t fly in Marin County.’

‘My form of eating organic doesn’t vibe with theirs.’

Hetfield says that in the Bay Area, ‘there was an elitist attitude there – that if you weren’t their way politically, their way environmentally, all of that, that you were looked down upon.’

So he packed up his home and moved to Vail, Colorado where he does not have to live in a judgmental society that judges him for not fitting into their diverse society. Ironic, is it not?

Now, he is in Colorado where he can hunt without being judged.
