    Sammy Hagar has a new track on his upcoming album called "Knockdown Dragout," which features Kid Rock. He wanted his pal James Hetfield of Metallica to contribute vocals, but Hetfield politely declined, since he didn't feel it fit his style. Fair enough. Even so. Hagar still loves Hetfield, since they are bros!

    "He's really powerful, and he doesn't bullshit," Hagar said about Hetfield's commanding stage presence. "He's not up there doing cheap shit to become a good frontman, like I do. I'll use a stupid line like, 'Are we having any fun yet?' just to get a reaction. And I know how to say something right before you end a song, so the band ends it and you get a big giant cheer because of something I said, and it sounds like they loved the song. I know all them little old veteran tricks. James doesn't even use that shit and he's still got charisma up the ass. He's really strong, man."

    Who is your favorite rock 'n' roll or metal frontman? Is it James Hetfield?
