Eddie Trunk: “As well as the fact that James [Hetfield] is going to make a public appearance since a very lengthy stay in rehab by the way, from what I’ve been told. So hopefully this has done the trick, he’s feeling good and healthy. I mean, Metallica has a pretty big run of shows lined up for this year and I think, you know, there’s probably a little bit of a concern that James wants to do them all and is going to be healthy enough. I mean, you can come out of rehab and worry about certain triggers if you’re battling some stuff.”
Trunk continued: “Different people handle that in different ways where they feel it’s really good to work, let me get out there and work and that’s helpful but then other people think: “Well the road isn’t a place that I should be if I’m battling.” We will see. It’s well known that whatever it was twenty years ago and it’s well documented that it took a long time for James to get back in the swing of things after he had some issues a ways back. We will see how this plays out because they have a very, very active schedule for 2020.” James Hetfield recently unloads on canceling Metallica tour for rehab.
