Don’t get me wrong. I love him. He is brilliant, he represents what it means to be in a band and where could that take you if you believe in yourself. But… he’s lousy. Lars Ulrich, I mean.
After the Black Album, Metallica was writing some of their best stuff while Lars as a drummer was goin’ truly downhill. He embraced the business side of things and forgot all about drumming. Which is fine if you ask me. His bandmates always supported him so why should we care?
On the other hand he has some pretty amusing “jam” moments put on record. One of them -probably his worst– is the fill starting on the 2:53 mark…
I could break it down but really it speaks for itself 🙂
