Born James Alan Hetfield on August 3, 1963, in Downey, California, US, he is best known as the lead songwriter of Metallica. Hetfield felt the charm of music in his early childhood when he took piano lessons. By the time he turned fourteen, he realized that playing drums was his true calling. It was in October of 1981 that he co-founded Metallica with drummer Lars Ulrich and ever since has played a key role in the band who grabbed Grammy awards nine times. Over the years, Metallica has released nine studio albums, three live albums, four extended plays and 24 singles. In addition to his duties with Metallica, Hetfield has also guest-played on friend's albums, sometimes being credited (Primus' 1999 all-star affair Antipop), and sometimes not (ex-Faith No More guitarist Jim Martin's solo debut Milk and Bloodand Corrosion of Conformity's Wiseblood). Thanks to his incredible skills as a vocalist, he was positioned 24th in the "Top 100 list of the greatest vocalist of all-time" by the influential magazine "Hit Parader". It was perceived as a big honor for Hetfield, who continues to crank out best-selling albums and sold-out tours with his band.
