Metallica’s James Hetfield Questioned at Luton Airport


According to The UK Times: James Hetfield, the frontman with US metal rockers Metallica, was apparently questioned by security officials at Luton airport when arriving for the Live Earth gig at Wembley. Friends put it down to his “Taliban-like beard”.

The story first surfaced couple of days ago at the Ross Halfin diary where he writes: …flew home in the middle of the night to Luton, got home at 6.30 am, then immigration decided they didn’t like James’ “Taliban Metallica” beard. So off we went through immigration.

Here is Metallica group photo, incl. James’ Taliban beard from the newest collection of great Ross Halfin pictures:

I think its kinda crap they pulled you up for immigration just because of the style of James’ beard, that seems kinda racist.
