In a recent interview with the Washington Post, Hetfield said that he had no regrets about his long career. "The things I did that hurt myself, it got me to where I need to be now, and all happened for a reason."
But then he amended. "I do regret the wreckage on the road. The people I treated with such soullessness . . . the cheating, destruction, just completely abusing people, being drunk. I do wish I hadn't hurt other people."
Back in the wild days, "there was total disregard for anybody and their authority, no respect for any security people, total objectification of women, just degradation, that was enough. . . . Playing music was fun. But I went on the road for that other stuff. . . . I could say three little words: Rush the stage. And people would die. It's a lot of power and I used to not give a damn."
