More than a week ago, Metallica guitarist and frontman James Hetfield reentered rehab to fight alcohol issues.
Since then many musicians have come out and expressed their support to James.
Hetfield bandmate and brother Lars Ulrich says that he is “thinking about” his “brother”.
Ulrich took to his Instagram to share a photo of him with Hetfield, along with the following caption:
“Thinking about my brother. ….sending love.”
Hetfield has been open about his addiction and alcoholism. His struggles were detailed in the 2004 documentary “Some Kind Of Monster”.
During the recording of St. Anger in 2001, James went into rehab to address his alcohol usage. He rejoined the band after almost 8 months in rehab and four months recovering with his family. Since then James is clean and sober and was planning to remain so, all of which is featured in Some Kind of Monster. Sadly James couldn’t control it after 18 years. We hope James fights it hard and come back sober and clean.
