Tony Iommi Releases Message in Support of James Hetfield
Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi is the latest notable metal musician to release a statement in support of James Hetfield. The Metallica frontman, whose struggles with alcohol abuse were famously documented in Some Kind of Monster, re-entered rehab last week, leading to the cancellation of an upcoming Metallica/Slipknot tour of Australia and New Zealand.
Writing on Facebook, Iommi says:
“My best out to James Hetfield. You’ve done the right thing seeking help – I’m thinking of you my friend and wishing you all the very best on your recovery. Looking forward to seeing you back at your best very soon.
