James Hetfield says the coronavirus pandemic has helped him slow down, learn more about himself, and build a community of friends.

In a new interview with So What!, the Metallica frontman agreed that he felt "more comfortable" with his life's direction than ever before.

"A pandemic is not welcomed. People are hurting. People are dying.
There's lots of people struggling, really, really struggling with funds, wherever they're living, they can't afford things anymore.
Lives are changing drastically," he told the fan-club magazine.

"So I don't mean to sound cold about it, but for me personally, it's been really helpful to slow down, stop the work, stop the circus of what's going on with touring and band and all of that stuff, family struggles as well. So it's really good to have time to just be. Not have to have an agenda, but just to chill, to soak up life on life's terms, to plug into my community here in Colorado," he added.

Alcohol addiction had forced the singer to return into rehabilitation last year.
