Metallica recently posted an update on frontman James Hetfield on their official website, www.metallica.com . As you will recall, Hetfield checked himself into rehab last summer and has beeen laying low ever since.
“Yes folks, we have word from James, and the news is all good,” reads the posting. “His recovery has gone exceedingly well, he is back out, about and feeling rather good about life. And as he has since this process started for him, James thoroughly appreciates all the support, messages and patience you've all offered. And we can say with absolute certainty that (such has become the Metallimantra) your patience will be rewarded.”
Hetfield himself added a note to the updates, saying: “My rough road has become smoother reading the show of support from the friends I've met through Metallica. Thank you. They move me deeply. My music and lyrix have always been therapy for me,’” James added. “‘Without this God-given gift, I don't know where I'd be. And now I TRULY feel the impact and connection it's made with others.”
