    Soooo true, but Robert is such a cool dude, he deserves an easy gig that pays him uber cash, and makes him laugh. Besides, he was able to use some of that Metcrapola cash and influence to get his amazing 'Jaco' doc out.

    Just delete it and start over
    That was going to be the opening track

    Torben knew what Metallica was about more than Metallica did by then

    It's funny in a depressing "Jesus, what happened to these guys? " way.

    Maybe the band simply ran out of good ideas but hadn't realized it yet.

    Apparently their new album is getting rave reviews.

    Lars gets a lot of unnecessary criticism. Everyone knows he isn't the best drummer on the planet and especially in metal but his style works well in Metallica. Also without Lars' business acumen when the band first started who knows if they would have ever became the group they are today. As well when I met him back in 2009 before their show here in NY he was extremely nice, down to earth and made me feel at ease. Far from the way the media portrays him.

    http://radio.morphinemachine.com/ Also tune in if you want to hear tunes from the new Metallica album as well as other new material from NIN, Devin Townsend and also classic metal

    Stumbled on this randomly. Apparently Rammstein have professional therapy sessions for them to work together. They haven't changed their lineup since beginning (25 years).

    Lulz. This goddamn page. Talk about a blast to the past. I read this for the first time like 15 years ago.

    I'm a huge Pantera fan but ironically enough, that page introduced me to Exhorder and made me a big fan of them as well.

    As a drummer myself I can say that Lars is a joke, but his style works well for Metallica. (he played well on the early albums) and I heard that he's great with fans so I can't really shit on him

    Lars isn't too great.
    Of them all I'd hire Hetfield to play rhythm guitar.

    Good wisdom. I've heard this as well; which is why I won't be watching it.

    There's a moment I knew I'd be laughing about for years, already described.
    Lars' father knows more about what Metallica should sound like than Metallica.
