Metallica's James Hetfield Throws Guitar Off Stage After Sound Issues During Grammys Performance With Lady Gaga

James Hetfield, lead vocalist and guitarist of Metallica, is not happy after performing at the 2017 Grammy Awards.

While performing on stage with Lady Gaga, his mic didn’t seem to work until halfway through the song, at the Staples Center on Sunday (February 12) in Los Angeles.

James then stepped over to share a mic with Gaga.

At the end of the performance, he forcibly threw his white electric guitar backstage, along with his pick, which you can see below.

This came right after Adele also had some sort of technical issue, stopping the song in the middle of her George Michael tribute and starting over.

    Yeah, I knew some heads would roll due to James mic not on. I must say that Gaga wasn’t needed she was more of a distraction. Metallica are bad a$$ and no guests were needed. I think this is the first time in years that there was a real performance on the Grammys. I flipped on right on time and flipped off when it was o er.

    I would have preferred to hear lady Gaga sing the whole song herself. She’s a real metal head and I really wish I would have heard the whole song with just her singing.

    This was just too much. Too loud (couldn’t hear the mix of instruments), mikes off — not well-planned. Sucks for Metallica. They weren’t even ANNOUNCED! I’d be so mad if I were them.

    No she’s not a metal head.
