James is the co-founder of the thrash-metal mammoth-band, Metallica, that has performed all around the globe since the 80's, and still continues to gather hundreds of thousand of Metallica fanatics to sold-out concerts wherever they set foot in the world.



He is the ultimate tough dude, meat, sweat and fast cars. He's a really nice and friendly man, though.

James enjoys making music, playing guitar, doing all kinds of extreme sports, and collecting cars and motorcycles.


He is wearing aikea guinea's default replacement skin
and robokitty's tattoo


James is made with awesome mod's 3x slider hack, and you'll only need to download a slider hack in case you'd like to alter his features!

My Kirk Hammett -sim can be found here!
...and Lars Ulrich here!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Cool, that's what I aimed for, that fellow fans wouldn't react like "what the *?"
he was one of the first sims I did, and just stayed in the back of my game, but then I just thought why not uploading him.

Excellent likeness, though I really wouln't know much about the guy but the sim looks a LOT like the pics you posted. I needed way more manly men in my game, so this will be very welcome! :D

great job! you should make Billy Corgan from the Smashing Pumpkins, that would be cool.

Please list the expantion packs/stuff packs needed for your downloads and give credit where it's due. It does make a difference.

A lot in his face seems off when you put the real pic next to the sim but either way you can tell it's him from miles away, amazing job! <3

Oh hell yeah, I will make 'em all the only thing I'm concerned is Kirk's hair, where the heck I'll find a nice poofy perm for males? I know some-one has made EXACTLY same looking hair as Kirk's, but it was for TS2 females.

So if some Mod-Making Metallica Fan would be interested in converting it, Please contact me! But seriously, no Metallica without Kirk's cool perm!

I think I got it from the Exchange, don't know if this works but try if you'll get it show up in your game.

Yeah, he tends to look different in every pic, so I just made him the way I felt would capture him the best. The skin is the biggest difference, but there ain't too many skin tones called "consumed by years of smoking and Rock'n roll"..

No panic, sims aren't installed the same way as other downloads, do this every time you download a sim:

1) extract the RAR. file
2) put the sim. -file in C:\Documents and Settings\MyFiles\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims
3) now he should show up in your game.

It may not be EXACTLY same place as I mentioned, but you should be able to find it if you poke around Documents and Settings
