Metallica’s James Hetfield was honored by Little Kids Rock during the organization's 2013 Rockin’ The Bay Benefit event.

He received the "Livin' The Dream Award", named in honor of Josef Desimone, head chef at Facebook, who supported Little Kids Rock and passed away this past summer in a motorcycle accident.

Little Kids Rock mission is to restore and revitalize music education in disadvantaged public schools across the United States.
