    Lars Ulrich is a butthole.
    For curiosities sake, has lars always been crap live? For instance, I've never thought he was a bad drummer (like the prevailing opinion is, I guess) I just thought he was just a very workmanship style drummer, just keeping a beat without really standing out too much. But watching their live videos, he always seems to be behind, just a little off, or his fills tend to drag on for too long. Something is off about the guy when he drums these days, and I just don't know if I'm just not seeing the full crappiness that everyone else seems to want to hang him for, if it's overblown and he's just 'off' live.

    His drum tracks always take the longest to record because he just can't keep time.

    And he falls off a lot when playing live, usually he covers it up with a huge fill until he knows where he is.

    Lars is a unique drummer in that he hasn't had any formal training. His training came from 10 hour drum sessions in his garage.

    This had it's upsides and downsides. The good is that it build him a lot of endurance. The problem is, he never learned much technique. You'll see that on a lot of Metallica songs... very fast songs, without much variation in technique.

    In my opinion, Lars did very well on early live shows. The problem is, with age, his endurance started to fade. Drummers like Neil Peart are still good because of their technique. Lars had only endurance, and without it, he lost all that made his drumming style.

    As much as I love the Beatles, I agree.

    The Beatles never would have had the success they had if they hadn't started playing Pop, which caused them to cross over into the US.

    people who call the cops on their neighbors who are trying to jam instead of knocking on their door and asking them to turn it down deserve a flaming turd on their doorstep tomorrow morning.

    it's certainly not the first time or anything, but it never fails to annoy, especially in this instance since we were playing rather quietly.

    The Metallica/Anti-Nowhere League tune? I could imagine many of the students getting chewed out for singing some of those lyrics.

    No, the bad pop song by the singer Pink. If that song didn't exist, it would be doing the world a favor.

    I'm fortunate.

    My room is on the leftmost side of the building (if looking at the house from the street). Our neighbors on that side actually loved my playing and hearing me progress. The man had Lou Gehrig's and was a drummer back in the day and loved to hear me evolve and make comments on my playing. He passed away a few months ago, and he was essentially the audience that I played for every night.

    They most likely would have still been regarded as influential, though, just because of all the things they did different. They might not have retained their popularity, though.

    I think that if you like Radiohead, there is a near 100% chance that you're a pretentious douchebag. Never have I seen a band that entails such massive existentialism, Kid A has no kind of musical merit whatsoever, the bands existence enrages me. Karma Police and Paranoid Android are the same song. Ok Computer is an ok album.

    Radiohead has one of the worst fanbases of all time and I spend at least 5 minutes a day trolling fans on Youtube.

    i'm not a super-huge radiohead fan, but way to get on an ignore list.

    They likely would've remained an exclusively British phenomenon.

    All right, let me run this through my head, make sure I've got it straight.

    A "near 100% chance"... so basically, you say anyone who happens to like Radiohead is a pretentious douchebag... ok, got it.

    Then you go on to claim something has "no musical merit", and call two entirely different songs, with different tempos, and even different instruments, the same. You then top it off by saying you troll the fans on youtube, who are doing nothing but discussing a band they enjoy. Way to be a hypocrite.

    Right so far?

    I think it was either Love me Do or I wanna Hold your Hand that brought them popularity in the USA. I'm not fond of anything pre-Rubber Soul, to be honest.
