Beardfilter: Update on James Hetfield’s Taliban-like beard

by Josh Kimball

Last weekend, a British newspaper reported the news that Metallica frontman James Hetfield had been detained at a British airport due to his “Taliban-like beard.” Now, Hetfield’s representatives are DENYING (last item) that report. Said his peeps, “It’s false. It’s not true.”

DO I SMELL SPIN CONTROL? We will continue to follow this beard as it develops, as well as any other music-related facial hair of note.
