I doubt very much if James Hetfield is a Christian. The lyrics to "The God That Failed" and some of their other songs do not sound like they were written by a Christian.

tiger beat...look you have no idea who dates James Hetfield right this moment so shut the f.....up

rn_tracy1_rnrn_tracy1_rnApr 19, 2013

Phantom_Lord, Eric Carr isn't even called a "drummer" compared to Lars. Tommy Lee neither. I do like Motley Crue, but Tommy Lee is basic.

TigerBeatDec 22, 2011

You called me a moron and other people similar things on several pages here Dylan. That IS offensive. How in denial are you about your anger issues over a friggin' gossip board and band you don't even know!

Dylan_NDylan_NDec 10, 2011

They have erased my comments , how pathetic, i didn't use offensive language or anything simply stated some facts and my opinion.

Tiger BeatMay 30, 2011

Dylan...where are you getting this lecturing about the man he is stuff? I never said that and I am guessing we are about to get some sort of "I know him" babble? Fact is all I said was that you can't say any reason for why any woman has hooked up with him unless you were one of them. No one can. And as for adoring him or liking him as an artist, not quite but good miss on that one.

Tiger BeatApr 14, 2011

And to Dylan, what isn't rude about your comment? Seems to me that Kristen dated him before he was famous so could it be she was actually attracted to him? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and looks aren't the only things girls like in a guy.

Tiger BeatApr 14, 2011

ihavesecret, I doubt you are Alycen by any means. First off, she herself states in interviews that she met James long before Fran and didn't sleep with him after he was married. So why the don't tell Fran b.s.? Suspect at best. I am sure Ms. Rowse would post it on her blog if she had anything else to say about that or write it in her book and not here.

ihavesecretMar 26, 2011

and that girl its me pls don't tell Fran
