James Hetfield Joins Kids for 'Enter Sandman' Jam
Young musicians got to live a rock and roll dream on Saturday (November 9th) when they were joined on stage by none other than Metallica's James Hetfield for a rendition of "Enter Sandman." As Ultimate Classic Rock reports, the jam was part of the Little Kids Rock charity's annual Rockin' the Bay Benefit, that is held at Facebook's headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif. Hetfield was on hand to receive inaugural Livin' the Dream award, created in honor of Josef Desimone, the late Facebook executive chef who helped create the Rockin’ the Bay event. Little Kids Rock founder David Wish issued the following statement about the award: "We're presenting James with this special 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." Little Kids Rock works to raise awareness and funds to revitalize music programs in school districts hit hardest by budget cuts. The program has funded music programming for more than 112,000 public school children in 12 states since its founding in 2002.
