Rage Against the Machine‘s Tom Morello, Metallica‘s James Hetfield and Guns N’ Roses Slash are sharing their support for Road Recovery, an organization that uses music to help teens battling addiction and other at-risk youth.

Each rocker filmed a video testimonial speaking about Road Recovery’s mission and how music can help, especially during a particularly difficult time like the COVID-19 pandemic.

“When I get really emotional, that’s when I write lyrics,” Hetfield says in his video. “When I get in a really happy, good mood, that’s when I start writing riffs. That’s just what I do, and you’ll find your own thing.”

Other artists offering testimonials include Peter Frampton and Bad Company‘s Paul Rodgers. You can watch all the videos now via the Road Recovery YouTube channel.
