    Maybe this can be moved to a similar thread, maybe not.

    Why do I read on this board that he is a bad drummer? That is ludicrous. If you hear ...And Justice For All, and you think he is a bad drummer, your just stupid.

    Forget Napster, and St. Anger was really good, just recorded wrong. The drums sound like shit. He got it right with the new album.

    I'm not really sure, but I'm sure Luke didn't think much of him after seeing his burning skellyton....

    Lars is a good drummer, but by no means is he the best.

    He's a drummer alright, but also a massive twat and Metallica are past their sell-by date.

    That's it.

    I didn't say that, I just don't know why people rag on him. Tony Williams is a million times better, he played with Miles back in the day.

    But is it great? No.

    And people rag on Lars because he is a massive twat.

    Your list is missing Dave Grohl and therefore must be corrected.

    distinct echoes of the past when they cut their hair and I cut them off. Words like grunge, alternative, I remember when they called it alternative. I swear a radio station came out called alt105 or somethin. Enter sandman ya right, enter shellfish and a downward spiral.

    It's not so much that Lars is a 'bad' drummer, he's just not a great one, his beats are boring and uninspired.

    There's many, many, much better drummers just in Metal:

    Igor Cavalera
    Gene Hoglan
    Nicholas Barker

    that's just a couple of top of me head - there's loads of feckin' brilliant drummers that I don't even know the names of that all blow Lars out of the water, style-wise.
