Here is a video of me talking to the one and only James Hetfield from Metallica!! I have always been very curious of James' songwriting process and I'm very happy he gave a good answer and took some time for it! And hahah I'm sorry for being a bit stupid, I was really nervous and it was quite hard to form sentences with the Mighty Het standing right in front of you! I had won a Meet and Greet with the whole band on the 15th on August just before their performance at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium. It was deffinitaly one of the best days of my life! Thanks a lot to MetonTour (Dennis and Jeff!) for the video! www.metontour.com
