Der RollingStone berichtet bereits darüber, hier ein Auszug:
Hetfield’s issues with addiction and alcoholism were detailed in the 2004 documentary Some Kind of Monster; following that film’s release, the singer entered a rehab facility and, as of 2017, he told the Joe Rogan Experience that he had remained sober for 15 years (via Loudwire).
“Fear was a big motivator in that for me,” Hetfield said at the time of his recovery. “Losing my family, that was the thing that scared me so much, that was the bottom I hit, that my family is going to go away because of my behaviors that I brought home from the road. I got kicked out of my house by my wife, I was living on my own somewhere, I did not want that. Maybe as part of my upbringing, my family kind of disintegrated when I was a kid. Father left, mother passed away, had to live with my brother, and then kind of just, where did my stuff go? It just kind of floated away, and I do not want that happening. No matter what’s going on, we’re going to talk this stuff out, and make it work.”
Alles Gute und viel Erfolg, James!
