James Hetfield of Metallica has denied reports that officials at a U.K. airport detained and questioned him due to his "Taliban-like" beard. A British newspaper claimed that security questioned him and quickly realized he was not a terrorist, but a rock star.
James' rep denies this ever happened.
Oh please! Mel Gibson looks like a member of the Taliban. James looks more like Fred Durst than a terrorist which I think is scarier. I would love to know what the questions were. Security probably tried to decode his tattoos and shit thinking they were some secret plan.

If you see an offensive or spammy comment you think should be deleted, flag it for the mods and they'll be forever grateful and give you their first born (although, you probably don't want that).
