Lars is a descent drummer, but a royal prick of a person.

You are probably one of those guys who says that Ringo Starr from the beatles was a bad drummer aswell. In both cases you either don't know jack **** about drums or you are a drummer, who has a lot to learn

Never the less, I like Lars his drumming, but I hate his attitude

I hate Lars as a person, well because he's an asshole.

I do however like his drumming as it suits the band.

lol, Usually people say the opposite.

How is he an asshole though?

There was that whole incident where he sued Napster for bazillions of dollars because the users were using it to pirate his music.

Also, if you haven't, watch the documentary Metallica: Some Kind of Monster. Lars really just acts like a dick all the time.

He actually helped pull the band through rough times, kind of a binding factor.

And suing a company, which takes the music that people make a living of, and giving it out for free, is NOT a dick move

Normally, it isn't.

However, being a member of a megarich band like Metallica and throwing a hissy fit over a relatively small amount of money like that is a dick move.

People illegaly download their music and Lars is the asshole? lolwat
User avatar #125 to #123 - dustyshane (06/13/2012) [-]
Oh well that is a dick move.

Also, I'm not really a Metallica fan like everyone on this site, so I probably won't watch it.

Nowadays he's a lazy **** . And don't give me "well he's old, he can't keep up with the fast songs", Dave Lombardo is older than him and he rips the audience with his double bass

inb4 there isn't a concert where Lars doesn't miss the timing at least once.

Can't say I ever looked into whether it was true or not, but my music teacher (who was 28 and had played in a band professionally since about the age of 19, so I assume he knew what he was talking about) mentioned that they at some point had to cut and tape back together a recording Lars' drumming so that it would fit with what the rest of the band was playing.

That being said, he had some sociopathic tendencies and couldn't help making **** up to prove a point.

That's just a basic studio technique though...

Ah, well now I know that at least.

James has been screaming since the 80's His voicebox can only take so much.

Looked into it because I even though I seem to do a lot of it here, I don't like talking about things I don't know.

Turns out there was some truth in it, but not for the reasons he said. In recording Enter Sandman, they ended up with about 50 separate drum recordings that they had to cut and paste together to make the whole song, but that was because Lars was somewhat spontaneous when recording, and had moments of inspiration that he didn't want to waste. They ended up recording all of his little inspirational outbursts, picking the best version of each section of the song, and putting the best of each section together to make the best studio version of the song they could achieve, which sounds like a perfectly legitimate, albeit slightly unorthodox, method of recording a song if you ask me.
