Overview

So Let It Be Written: The Biography of Metallica's James Hetfield by Mark Eglinton

"Eglinton's book provides the ultimate insider’s look at the man who turned it all around and became a metal god.." — Guitar World

“A brilliant look into one of heavy metal’s most important icons. . . . For a Metallica fan like me, So Let It Be Written is must have.” — Ghost Cult

“Eglinton has painted a colorful and hugely interesting picture of the life of one of metal’s biggest names. . . . Eglinton has done an exemplary job in showing us the life of a troubled heavy metal hero in an eloquent, unbiased and, above all, respectful way.” —Metal Wani

The first and only biography of one of the best front men of the modern era.

With James Hetfield at the helm, Metallica went from being thrash pioneers to heavy metal gods. He overcame adolescent upheaval and personal demons—including his parents’ divorce, his mother’s untimely death and severe alcoholism—to become metal’s biggest star.

So Let It Be Written does justice to the many hats Hetfield has worn, with his strong leadership, signature vocal style, powerful guitar-playing and masterful songwriting. Author Mark Eglinton uses exclusive, firsthand interviews—with prominent rock stars and key figures in Hetfield’s life—to construct the definitive account of Hetfield.

“Hopefully this book will rekindle certain special memories about one of metal’s most charismatic and important individuals.” —Chuck Billy of Testament
