James Hetfield has been living in the San Francisco Bay Area since the 1980s. But this year, Papa Het and his family moved to Colorado. He told himself the reason for his move.

James Hetfield, who spoke in an interview with the radio podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience,” explained the reason for his moving to Colorado. He said:

I kind of got sick of the Bay Area, the attitudes of the people there, a little bit. They talk about how diverse they are, and things like that, and it’s fine if you’re diverse like them. But showing up with a deer on the bumper doesn’t fly in Marin County. My form of eating organic doesn’t vibe with theirs.”

James also talked about his new home and his neighborhood:


“It’s quiet. There’s no frigging traffic. Especially now — super quiet. Snow… Snow does something to calm you down a little bit.

There’s a lone-wolf part of me that maybe you can relate to. But I like being by myself. But I also need people to connect with as well.

Moving from California to Colorado was a great thing for me. I feel really… I feel a part of nature there. And you don’t wanna be inside there. There’s something about it. You just wanna be outside all the time.”

It seems James has chosen to live with his childrens in a peaceful way.
