Who's the hot guy?

Someone please tell me when Metallica frontman James Hetfield got hot?
The 49 year-old guitarist appears with his Metallica bandmates on the cover of The Big Issue for Rolling Stone magazine. (Nobody mugs for photos like metal heads.)

My biggest memory of Metallica is how my girlfriend, who usually liked New Kids on the Block and J-pop, developed a fondness for their song Enter Sandman.  I also remember in the 80s and 90s that the band members had a lot of hair.  This summer Metallica crisscrosses Europe, the US, and Mexico on tour and begin filming a 3-D movie.

Hetfield's home base is Marin County, California where his young family lives.  It will be exciting to see if any of his kids eventually hit the big stage like their dad.
