There comes a time in each of our lives when Marin County just doesn’t cut it anymore. To hear Metallica’s James Hetfield tell it, it’s not so easy. How’re you doing with that?’ And they’re less obsessed with stopping what you’re doing and more enjoying what they’re doing.”
Check out the full interview below. And the food is phenomenal. Metallica at the 44th Festival d’ete de Quebec on the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City Saturday July 16, 2011. As first pointed out by, Hetfield found a naturalism in Colorado that he preferred over San Fransisco’s elitism:
There was just a… I don’t know… I felt that there was an elitist attitude there — that if you weren’t their way politically, their way environmentally, all of that, that you were looked down upon. They’re very into, ‘Oh, you like doing that? How’s that go? Sure, San Francisco is gorgeous. That, among other reasons, is why he moved from San Fransisco to Vail, according to the singer’s recent appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast. (Case in point: Rice-A-Roni.)
But what if you want to track down your own dinner? Not on Yelp, but with binoculars, an orange vest and an Elmer Fudd hat? I think in Colorado, everyone is very natural; people are not playing some game, they’re not posturing.
