James Hetfield Performs ‘Baby Hold On’ at the Eddie Money Tribute Show in Beverly Hills, California.
The star-studded Eddie Money tribute show has done a number of great things: it has raised money for the USC Eddie Money Cancer Research Fund and also featured Metallica singer James Hetfield surprising attendees by hopping on stage with his acoustic guitar.
James Hetfield’s unannounced performance of Eddie Money’s “Baby Hold On” was the Metallica lead singer/guitarists first time on stage since announcing last September that he was entering a rehab facility leading to the band canceling their Australian tour.
Eddie Money and James Hetfield were pals from the Bay Area, as Rolling Stone pointed out. RS also said that the event, in addition to James Hetfield, was attended by longtime Eddie Money pals Sammy Hagar, George Thorogood, Rick Springfield.
Money past away last September at the age of 70.
