After so many years apart, James confessed: ‘I saw a lot of myself in
him.’ Not that they discussed the past in any detail still, ‘because there’s no
doubt that we’d argue about things’. He didn’t want to ‘stir the water up’.
The past, he’d decided, ‘just fucks things up – always’. These would be
issues between father and son that would remain unresolved, and that
Hetfield would later be forced to return to – after his father’s death. Already
seriously ill at the time of their brief reconciliation, Virgil Hetfield died on
29 February 1996, after a two-year battle with cancer.

What does these refer to?

@vvlad,
It's certainly not clearly stated what "these" issues were... I don't think it's a very important issue. Maybe the fact he saw a lot of himself in his father and what bothered him about his dad are some of his own failings/characteristics? No chance of resolution. I am not clear, but that's my guess. Again, it doesn't seem that important, unless it's crucial to the story.

I agree with Mame that "It's certainly not clearly stated what "these" issues were." I suspect the issues to which were being referred were specified in the paragraphs preceding this one.
