Metallica's vocal hunchback James Hetfield and his wife Francesca welcomed their third baby to the world on January 17, a daughter named Marcella Francesca Hetfield. The girl, who weighed in at 8 pounds, 5 ounces, was immediately treated for drug and alcohol abuse at an undisclosed clinic in Los Angeles. Her "manager" parents had no comment for the press, other than "Metallica rocks harder than anyone...rock." The richest band on Earth are still working as a three piece on their forthcoming album without Jason Newsted, who is busy producing and recording with high school kids, in order to score that "kind bud" that only the kids can get these days.
