Hunting opponents aim to oust Metallica from festival (video)


Opponents of bear hunting are mounting a campaign to get Metallica dropped from the Glastonbury festival lineup. The online petition stems from James Hetfield's role as host of The Hunt, a History Channel show that includes an episode about hunting down a brown bear in Kodiak, Alaska.  A post on the Facebook page started those seeking to have Metallica dropped from the headline spot at the festival reads, 'James Hetfield, lead singer of Metallica is a supporter and promoter of big game hunting' and contends that role conflicts with '...the values of environmentalism that have become so important at Glastonbury.'  The site had collected 14,000 Likes.  Lars Ulrich calls the petition and other criticism of the group '...ridiculous'.  Hear what eles he had to say here...
