James Hetfield was temporarily detained by security officials at a British airport, according to U.K. reports. The rocker jetted into Luton airport ahead of Saturday’s Live Earth London gig – where his band is performing – but was stopped by officials before he could leave the terminal. British newspaper The Times claims Hetfield’s friends blame his “Taliban-like beard” for the interrogation.

Though I am personally opposed to most forms of profiling, if security officials around the globe could go a step further and put the above gentleman on a Do Not Fly List, I’d feel much safer.
