Metallica’s James Hetfield Jams with ‘Little Kids Rock’ [VIDEO]

You have to love the Interwebs. No sooner does something happen – anywhere in the world – someone will have it posted on youtube, facebook, or any number of news or infotainment websites. Sometimes that’s a good thing. Sometimes, not so good. In this case it’s a very good thing!

James Hetfield with Little Kids Rock

Saturday night, James Hetfield of Metallica was honored by the Little Kids Rock organization at their “Rockin’ the Bay” benefit in Menlo Park, California.

David Wish, Little Kids founder and Executive Director, presented Hetfield with the “Livin’ the Dream” award

as a way to not only recognize his support of Little Kids Rock over the years, but also his role as an inspirational presence in a band that has revolutionized and defined a music genre

As far as the internet posting, video has already hit of Hetfield performing “Enter Sandman” with some of the students involved in Little Kids Rock. And as you can see from this video, the little kids, do, in fact, ROCK!

If you’re not familiar with Little Kids Rock, it was started as an informal project led by a handful of volunteers, and has grown to national status, bringing life back into public school music education. Little Kids Rock is now one of the leading providers of free musical instruments and instruction in the U.S., reaching more than 74,000 disadvantaged students in 25 cities across the country, with more coming soon…
