James Hetfield Loves Birds



Metallica, James Hetfield — Taylor Hill:FilmMagic.

James Hetfield is admitting that birdwatching is the wind beneath his wings.

Hetfield talked about the pastime and his broader love for animals on The Metallica Report podcast, joking, “I love all animals. I love them – especially with salt and cooked medium rare.”

He explained, “No! I love the beasts of this planet, they’re so cool. On my time off, I’m obsessed with having a cigar on the porch and I’ve got probably about six bird feeders. I know all the birds that come out there and I’ve got my little app that has bird noises, and I can see which one they are and I’ll pull it up and talk to ’em and all that stuff.”
