JAMES HETFIELD VS. AXL ROSE: THE FEUD CONTINUES
I had no intention of writing about this, but so many of you have e-mailed us about it, and we aim to please… or some shit like that.
So in case you never saw it, there’s this famous outtake from A Year and a Half in the Life of Metallica in which James Hetfield talks a lot of smack about Axl Rose — or, as Hetfield calls him, “Axl Pose.” Check it out:
And now this Australian radio station, Triple M, has interviewed Hetfield, and, even though he claims to “respect” Axl, he clearly does not:
Look: whatever else you wanna say about Hetfield, he does seem to basically show up and do his job, and I’ve never heard about him dicking the fans over (unless you consider Metallica’s post-Justice output “dicking the fans over”). So it’s hard to say that Hetfield is wrong. On the other hand, y’know… just ’cause someone sucks harder than you doesn’t mean you don’t suck, y’know?
