Metallica: Het's Induction Hour

Steven Wells, New Musical Express, 2 May 1992

JAMES HETFIELD likes weapons, Queen, women who aren't brain-surgeons, hates rap and looking like Lemmy, doesn't know all the words to 'Bohemian Rhapsody' but feels proud to be "part of this AIDS thing". This AIDS Awareness Tribute To Fred thing, that is. STEVEN WELLS smells the stench of political rock star moralism in the ranks of monster Metal unit-shifters METALLICA.
