James Hetfield house:
James Hetfield and his family lived in Marin County, California. In 2016, the Hetfields moved to Vail, Colorado after years of being displeased by the local liberal politics and attitudes. On an episode of Joe Rogan’s podcast, James explained how he was sick of getting dirty looks from neighbors when he returned home from a hunting trip. He found their attitudes hypocritical since none of these people would hesitate to buy a steak from a store. He has since found a much more accepting home in Colorado.

His family was strict follower of Christian Scientists and therefore did not use modern medicine, even when his mother was dying of cancer. Cynthia succumbed to cancer in 1979 when James was 16 years old. This pain, along with other difficult childhood memories, would later fuel many of Metallica’s lyrics.
Hetfield got his first taste of music in his childhood after taking piano lessons. By the time he turned fourteen, he realized that playing rock music was his true calling. He was in a few bands including Leather Charm and Obsession.
Meanwhile, Lars Ulrich moved from Denmark to Newport Beach, California in 1980. Despite being a ranked tennis player back in Denmark, Lars failed to make the team at his high school. This failure was what finally inspired Lars to focus fully on drumming.
