Metallica Singer’s Beard Spooks Brits
Due to his “Taliban-like beard,” rock group Metallica’s frontman, James Hetfield, was detained at the Luton Airport in London on Thursday. On his way to play at the Live Earth concert, the California-born Hetfield was interrogated by officials who suspected he was a terrorist. Fortunately, he was able to convince authorities that he was actually a rock star rather than a member of al-Qaeda. Good to see that even celebs aren’t immune from facial hair profiling.
