James Hetfield got into it with the paparazzi while he was on Christmas vacation. The Metallica guitarist and his son Castor were being followed by paparazzi in Uruguay on Christmas Day. After a confrontation with one of the photographers, Hetfield picked up some rocks and started throwing them at the pack following him.

Check out StarFeine.com for pictures of Hetfield pitching the rocks.

Matt Heafy of Trivium posted a pretty funny tweet on Tuesday.  He showed a picture of a royalty check worth $1.31 and wrote “Dear state of the music industry, Thanks a heap for this massive royalty check”.  Hopefully Matt and his band can make up for it in merch and ticket sales when they tour with In Flames, Veil of Maya and Kyng in 2012.
