Metallica frontman comments on recent illness

Metallica (2008) METALLICA frontman James Hetfield has checked in following his recent dehydration illness which caused the cancellation of the band's March 8th at Stockholm's Globe Arena:

"James here, alive, at about 80% but getting better. I want to say sorry for missing the second Stockholm gig on Sunday due to illness. The cause/diagnosis at the hospital was narrowed down to either a 24 hr virus or a bad oyster...yes, hate to admit, an oyster could have taken me down.

I acknowledge and apologize for any inconvenience this has caused fans who had traveled near and far for the show. I had done everything possible to make it, and was at the point of falling if I stood up. On a lighter note since my illness, the support band 'Swedish Oyster Cult' will be thrown off the tour. More Cowbell?...More barf bagz!!

Thanx for your understanding and support. It's not without notice from the whole 'Tallica Touring Family.

With Love and Respect, James 'papa het'."
