Metallica frontman James Hetfield realised the evils of JAGERMEISTER when he enraged parents and husbands of girls he had slept with - and had no idea why they were angry with him.

The newly-sober rocker confesses he remembers nothing about some of his group's biggest tours.

He says, "Those were my Jagermeister days. It was bad coming back to some of those towns later, because there were a lot of dads and moms and husbands and boyfriends looking for me. Not good.

"People were hating me and I didn't know why. That's when I realised Jagermeister is not the elixir of life I thought it was."
