METALLICA’s James Hetfield Departs Band, Announces Country Music Album ‘Hetfield Road’

 

Heavy metal legend James Hetfield has announced he is leaving Metallica to start a new career in Nashville. He has been a member of Metallica for over 30 years and has created music with that band that will certainly live on forever. Although fans were shocked, a source connected to the band says it has been in the works for “a long time”.

In a statement, Hetfield said it was “time to move on and get back to my country roots”. He is expected to release his debut album in June and make his first appearance at the Grand Ole’ Opry in July. Hetfield was recently seen shopping for blue jeans and cowboy boots by paparazzi in Los Angeles.

In a candid new interview about his decision to leave the band, Hetfield says he has been a country music singer in “his heart” for the last “four or five Metallica records”. Obviously, he is commenting on the less heavier era of Metallica where Hetfield’s vocal performances resembled modern country music.

“Hetfield Road” was recorded in the fall and was somehow able to be kept a secret from fans. His debut album is expected to be a huge commercial success. His album features guest appearances from Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Phil Anselmo, and Eminem.

The album will come with a pack of cigarettes and a bottle of whiskey, according to a press release. Fans can also purchase a “VIP Edition” of his album which comes with 100% authentic tears shed by Hetfield while he recorded his upcoming single “My wife left me and my dog died”.

What does this mean for the heavy metal world? Who will take his place in Metallica? Lots of people seem to favor Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, who recently announced he was looking to depart the band.

The 20 Best Singers of All Time 

Amy Winehouse

They’ve yet to invent the musical instrument that can move us more than the human voice. Great singers convey a world of emotion in a single note, turn simple melodies into symphonies and imbue the most straightforward lyrics (think of Aretha’s “Baby, I love you”) with the depth of a Russian novel. No guitar solo can do all that.

In compiling this list of our favorite singers, we looked beyond range, technique and pitch to consider other factors: expressiveness, phrasing, originality, showmanship — and, let’s be honest, how much fun they are to imitate at karaoke. We also inevitably got subjective, and compared apples to oranges. Is Axl Rose really a better singer than Frank Sinatra? Are there really four R&B singers more talented than the greatest opera soprano of all time? Probably not, but ranking them and arguing about those rankings is half the fun.

Here, then, are L.A. Weekly‘s picks for the 20 greatest singers of all time, in any genre.

20. Ronnie James Dio
Ronnie James Dio was the voice of heavy-metal thunder for four decades. Whether he was singing about the “Man on the Silver Mountain” with Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, revitalizing Black Sabbath in the wake of Ozzy Osbourne’s departure or flying solo on classics like “Holy Diver,” Dio’s voice soared with an operatic grandiosity that matched the often fanciful nature of his fantasy-themed lyrics. But he also anchored his delivery with a sense of serious gravitas, which dignified such over-the-top lyrics as “Love can be seen as the answer/But nobody bleeds for the dancer” — verses that would have fallen flat in lesser hands. Even well into his 60s, almost right up until his death, his voice — and stage mannerisms — carried far into the cheap seats. —Jason Roche

19. Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey is the quintessential pop diva. When she first swooped audiences away back in the early ’90s, she was young and beautiful and could also hang with the boys, trading verses with the likes of Boyz II Men and even, at one point, Ol’ Dirty Bastard. But in the end, her enduring legacy has everything to do with her voice. With her multi-octave range and impressive versatility, she’s been able to modulate between big-and-brassy and breathlessly fragile modes (sometimes in a single tune), and of course there’s that “whistle register” that lets her float into the highest heavens. Sure, she’s probably overdone it with the melisma more than a few times, but her influence on current greats like Ariana Grande shows how Carey has helped to lay the foundation for contemporary R&B and beyond. —Peter Holslin 

18. Diamanda Galás
This Greek-American singer-pianist-provocateur made her solo recording debut in 1982 with The Litanies of Satan, a bloodcurdling blast of screaming, spitting sonority based on texts by poet Charles Baudelaire. Recorded in a freezing basement studio in London after Galás had been awake for 24 hours, Litanies is a glossolalic galaxy further perverted by fiendish floods of spatial delay, complex signal processing and overdubbing. It remains a terrifying work, one that established Galás as a troubling, troublesome singer of “homicidal love songs” who boasted a multi-octave voice of ungodly power and technical prowess. Even at age 60, her performances remain tour de force affairs that fling the Galás voice around in wicked wars between the Devil, God and all we wretched victims caught in the middle. —John Payne

17. Marvin Gaye
Forget for a moment that Marvin Gaye wrote some of the most memorable songs in pop history, or that he was practically inventing his own sophisticated fusion of R&B, jazz and funk when he was tragically shot to death by his own father in L.A. in 1984. Instead, consider that voice, which encompassed a three-octave range that roamed smoothly between tenor and baritone but could also soar exhilaratingly into a soulfully purifying falsetto. Sinuous and sensual on “Sexual Healing,” Gaye’s pleading yet soothing voice alone communicates more heartbreak and yearning than the lyrics of his eternal cry for love, “What’s Going On.” —Falling James

16. Ella Fitzgerald
In an early example of talent overcoming body shaming, Chick Webb in 1935 agreed to hire a chubby teenager for his vaunted Savoy Ballroom Orchestra, despite her disheveled appearance. Yet nothing could have been more graceful and gorgeous than the heavenly voice of Ella Fitzgerald, and the awkward young woman eventually became the First Lady of Song and the Queen of Jazz. A quick imagination and perfect pitch allowed her to scat-sing jaw-dropping improvised solos unmatched by anyone before or since. Fitzgerald’s countless albums have forever ensconced the tunes of the Great American Songbook in a voice of equal parts matronly elegance, girlish charm and playful sassiness. Saying Ella is one of the best simply doesn’t give her enough credit. —Gary Fukushima

15. Prince
For Prince, his voice is merely another instrument that he’s dutifully mastered. Like his virtuosity on guitar, Prince’s vocal dexterity is a thing of beauty, something he can use to subtly shade a song or to completely melt your face off, sometimes over the course of a single track (see “Little Red Corvette” and “When Doves Cry”). He’s crafted it into a multifaceted tool that covers a range of notes and emotions, from a sweet, soaring falsetto to an attitude-laden, low-end growl. Prince’s singing is front and center on his current Piano & a Microphone Tour, which finds him stripping his vast catalog down to the core essentials to showcase his artistry in its purest and most revealing state. —Scott T. Sterling

14. Maria Callas
Maria Callas had a voice that was even bigger than her larger-than-life persona. To the general public, the Greek-Italian star (born in New York and raised in Athens) was the epitome of a clichéd diva, with torrid love affairs and overhyped business scandals. But Callas was actually a diva in the classic sense, a supremely gifted and technically skilled coloratura soprano with an atypical, distinctive and otherworldly voice. At her early peak, she could cast her voice aloft to the highest aeries while still retaining a powerful ferocity, even in such vocally tricky bel canto operas as Norma and Lucia di Lammermoor. —Falling James

13. James Brown
It’s hard to separate James Brown’s singing abilities from his renowned performance style. For the “Godfather of Soul,” singing was an intensely physical act. He pushed his voice to emotional extremes. The party songs (“I Got You (I Feel Good)”) were joyous; the sorrowful ones (“Please, Please, Please”) were devastating. So rousing was Brown’s voice that he could keep the words to a minimum and still make an impact. His use of call-and-response was incredibly effective, especially when making a political statement as on “Say It Loud — I’m Black and I’m Proud.” Brown’s legacy extends to every aspect of his performance, from the caliber of musicians who joined him onstage to his costumes and dance moves. But none of those elements would have meant much if he didn’t have a voice that demanded your attention. —Liz Ohanesian

12. Jimmy Scott
Jazz balladeer Jimmy Scott, who started singing professionally with Lionel Hampton in 1948, didn’t just inhabit his songs — he used them as a vehicle to expose and exorcise the darkest, most painful, soul-deep human truths. His mournful alto, capable of stratospheric reach, and his drastically idiosyncratic delivery — always staying just a shade behind tempo and relying on a brilliantly timed use of sustained, drawn-out single notes — could completely redefine a lyric. Conflict, loss and yearning were his primary focus, but Scott also excelled at unspeakably tender, bittersweet declarations of love. Whether exploring a romantic high or a punishing low, Scott conveyed such a perpetually innocent sense of wonderment and poignancy that it was often impossible to tell where his own personal experience left off and his artistic genius began. —Jonny Whiteside

11. Elvis Presley
Before Elvis, white America was shackled by crippling conservatism. Then, four years into the 1950s, a hillbilly with greasy hair sang like the American teenager felt inside. The singer from Tupelo, Mississippi, had what record producer Sam Phillips was looking for, a “white man who had the Negro sound and the Negro feel” (language that makes us cringe now — but at the time, Elvis’ “sound” and “feel” did more to break down color barriers in popular music than any white singer ever had). Elvis’ low, trembling transmission to teenage America was emancipation in the form of rockabilly, gospel, schlocky love songs, Christmas standards and muddy blues. In the ’60s, his voice was muted by forgettable films, but in 1968, wearing a leather jumpsuit, he reminded America that the suffering in his voice was sex in a sexless society — a pink Cadillac crashing into daddy’s station wagon. —Art Tavana

9 Black Soul Singers Who Move Us More Than Adele Ever Could

jazmnesullivan-summerstage-Aug15-EVTPhoto_17I’m sick of folk flipping out over Adele as if she is that standard under which all over voices should be evaluated. Her voice is not that great. She can sing, She can hold a note. Let’s be honest: if you find yourself at a good Black Baptist church on any Sunday, you’ll be able to find somebody that could belt Adele under the table.

Omarosa infamously made history (again) when she went on the now defunct Bethanny show and said:

“It’s different for you and I, I am an African American woman. You get to walk around and be mediocre and you still get rewarded with things. We have to be exceptional to get anything in this business.”

And she was right.

The same goes for the music business. There is an abundance of black singers that can slay you straight to your soul that get little to no support whereas flimsier white artists like Meghan Trainer have everybody in their corner. There is no better example of this than Adele. She has a good voice. She is a talented writer. But not moreso than criminally slept on Tank. Not moreso than R&B fundamentalist Tyrese. Still, both crooners have at a minimum pondered retiring from music altogether due to the lack of support they’ve received.

the wiz live fierceIt’s time we stopped acting like Adele is serving soul like a those Emerald City dancers from The Wiz Live!. Adele gets away with being mediocre in the music industry because she is soulful by white standards.

Don’t believe me? Check these 9 artists below and let me know if Adele has ever performed near these standards.


 

1. Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston commanded the 1994 AMAs stage with a medley of “I Loves You Porgy”/”And I’m Telling You”/”I Have Nothing”. Who else you know that can take 3, count ’em 3, black standards to a non-black awards show and fully captivate the entire audience? That’s why Whitney is known as “The Voice”.

Whitney took The Star Spangled Banner, the United States National Anthem and a song that the most backwoods folk in our nation hold dearest to their hearts, and made it her own just like Serena stole tennis.


 

2. Jill Scott

“Jilly from Philly” has been putting your faves to shame on wax for years, but put her behind on a stage and you’ll see Ms. Scott really go to work. In this live and rare performance of her beloved “He Loves Me”, Scott is at her best. Her voice is strong yet delicate, and her delivery is like that pf a new age Billie Holiday. **snaps**


 

3. Fantasia

Before she was an actual recording artist, Fantasia went down in history for her performance of “Summertime” on American Idol. With her shoes off and sitting on the edge of the stage, Fantasia earned her American Idol crown weeks before the season was over.

When you put together a tribute for Patti Labelle, you can’t just book any singer. You need a sanger. And Fantasia fits that bill. She took her performance of “Lady Marmalade” from the stage to the audience to a dance with Patti and back, snatching wigs all along the way.


 

4. Jazmine Sullivan

There is plenty of material I could pull showing Jazmine Sullivan blowing the roof off of venues. But to further prove my point that Adele is mediocre in comparison to the bevy of black artists in the industry, I’m not going to share one of her current performances. Instead, I’ve goe an 11 Year Old Jazmine Sullivan singing “Home” From The Wiz. At 11(!) Ms. Sullivan could already blow back Adele’s coif.


 

5. Tamia

When I think of slept on vocalists, Tamia always shows up on my list. Do you even know of anybody else that can sing “You Put A Move On My Heart”? That takes range and power of voice that only a precious few are blessed with. But while visiting the Steve Harvey Morning Show, Mrs. Hill sang a collection of her hits and then capped the whole affair with a cover of Anita Baker’s “Been So Long”. Don’t try this at home folks.


 

6. Jennifer Hudson

Just like Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson was a force to be reckoned with on American Idol. Despite the hate she received from judges week in and week out, she proved again and again that she’s got the pipes. “Circle of Life” will have you testifying the goodness of God’s grace.

“Weekend In New England”, on the other hand, showed that she was a performer that didn’t have to just rely on belting out notes at the top of her range. She could do tender too. And even though she ended up getting voted off of the show after this performance, it was also a sign of the superstar that we’d see blossom in the coming years.


 

7. Luther Vandross

You don’t sing live on Soul Train. It was a rule. No matter who you were, you performed to a prerecorded track. But not Luther. Luther sings live. And when he pulls out “A House Is Not A Home” and starts those ad libs, you know you better get ready.


 

8. Luke James

I’m just waiting for Luke James to get the respect he deserves. His breakout hit “I Want You” was an instant classic.  But for his debut self-titled album, he included a cover of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me”. To me Sam Smith is just like Adele, and this comparison makes that clear as day.


 

9. Tyrese

“Sweet Lady”. “Lately”. “Stay”. Tyrese has been true to soul music from the start. And his recent (and final) album Black Rose further cemented his dedication to the genre. “Shame”, the lead single off of the album, was already a soul monster on its own. But watching him perform the song with Patti LaBelle at her house? I need a nap.

2 People Described The Same Person To A Forensic Artist And This Is What Happened

Your self-confidence shouldn’t be dependent on how attractive other people find you, but … because I know I would have reacted the same way if I’d been part of this project, I’ll get down off my high horse just long enough to say, “Ladies, we really need to stop being so hard on ourselves!”

Chances are, you’ll take a second look in the mirror after you watch this. Or maybe you’ll just ditch your mirror altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Gil Zamora: I’m a Forensic Artist. I worked for the San Jose Police Department from 1995 to 2011.

Florence: I showed up to a place I had never been and there was a guy with a drafting board.

Melinda: We couldn’t see them. They couldn’t see us.

Gil: Tell me about your hair.

I didn’t know what he was doing. But then I could tell after several questions that he was drawing me.

Tell me about your chin.

It kind of protrudes a little bit.

Mm.

Especially when I smile.

Your jaw?

My mom told me I had a big jaw.

What would be your most prominent feature?

I kind of have fat, rounder face.

the older I’ve gotten the more freckles I’ve gotten.

I would say I have a pretty big forehead.

Once I get a sketch I say, ‘Thank you very much.’ And then they leave. I don’t see them.

All I had been told before this sketch was to get friendly with this other women, Chloe.

Today I’m going to ask you some questions about a person you met earlier and I’m going to ask you some general questions about their face.

She was thin, so you could see her cheek bones. And her chin, it was a nice, thin chin.

She had nice eyes. they lit up when she spoke.

Cute nose.

She had blue eyes, very nice blue eyes.

So here we are. This is the sketch that you helped me create and that’s the sketch that somebody described of you.

Yeah. That’s . . .

She looks closed off and fatter. Sadder too.

Mm-hmm.

The second one looks more open, friendly and happy.

Mm-hmm.

I should be more grateful of my natural beauty. It impacts the choice in the friends that we make, the jobs we apply for, how we treat our children. It impacts everything. It couldn’t be more critical to your happiness.

Do you think you’re more beautiful than you say?

Yeah. Yeah.

We spend a lot of time as women analyzing and trying to fix the things that aren’t quite right. And we should spend more time appreciating the things that we do like.
