Metallica Robbed Over Steaks and Salads in Moscow

According to Google’s currency converter, 19,000 Russian roubles are currently worth around 653.58 of our American dollars. Metallica frontman James Hetfield found that out the hard way this weekend, when he dined out at a restaurant in Moscow and ended up paying a sizable bill.


Hetfield and his bandmates apparently bought steaks and salads while they were in the Russian city, and were presented with a check for around 8,000 roubles ($270). Sadly, Hetfield’s credit card was charged for 19,000 roubles—a tough bill to stomach considering the band had come to Moscow by train after the Icelandic volcano had disrupted their travel plans.


But Hetfield isn’t a man to take such an event lying down, and he returned to the restaurant to challenge the charge. Once there, he was presented with a receipt for the disputed amount with his signature next to it—he now claims his signature was forged. So whether this was a mistake on Hetfield’s part or genuine theft remains to be seen, although considering what an asshat the Metallica singer can be (see video below), any of the above is possible.

Karma. That clip makes being in a band (or that band, anyway) seem so un-fun.

I don't think that clip is so bad, Hetfield was shown in a much worse light when he fired their bass player for having a side project. Being in a band that huge isn't about "fun" any longer, it's big business...

Metallica can't pay a 600 dollar bill? WHat a bunch of whiny babies. Maybe they'll try to shut the restaurant down like they did with Napster


James was right; Lars' beat was sh*t.
