August 3rd was his birthday, so naturally we want to celebrate James Hetfield all week! Our friends at UltimateClassicRock.com put together a great visual history of the Metallica front-man, ranging from 1984 – 2020. Check out this look back in history here, and wish the birthday boy a happy 57th. Favorite photos from the gallery include Axl Rose, Slash and Duff in 1990, Scott Weiland from 2000, Sammy Hagar in 2007, Rob Halford in 2013, and a few shows that look pretty familiar. Were you at a show? Share it and tell us which one!
