Tales Of Fandom: James Hetfield Shaves Metallica Fan’s Beard After Two Year Growth (Statement)
The fan in question, 37 year old Mick Cassidy, made a vow to not shave until Metallica released an album. Seems like he was getting discouraged (I would, too, after watching Some Kind of Monster) and he was making a Gandhi-esque plea to the band to record. Finally, when the new album Death Magnetic came out (five years after the last one), James Hetfield shaved the beard for Mick (above) at the launch party.
Now that’s a dedicated fan!
