Leniency? In the metal forum? This is unheard of. People get massacred here for just walking by.

LOL FIND A CORNER AND HIDE THERE.

Most of hes lyrics come from heart, he's voice is agrassive and doesn't get old, he has made most agrassive and legendary riffs.

he's one of the guys i look up to.. coz im trying to be a rythm guitarist, a good one.. and to me he's one of the best.. but thats just my opinion and evryboys opinion is different
He is not relly underrated or overrated, i think he already got the credit he deserves so this thread is actually quite pointless

I don't remember where I was,
When I realized life was a game.
The more seriously I took things,
The harder the rules became.

You can't give up alcoholism. You're always an alcoholic..

You can admit to it, and deal with it, but you can't give it up.

I never liked metallica, from any period. Just bores the hell out of me, way better metal and thrash out there.

But there's no sense crying over every mistake, you just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

I think his guitar playing skills are overrated,but his song writing skills are underrated...

People just hate on him because Metallica haven't released any good material in about 20 years (apart from the odd song). If they were still pumping out thrash metal, people would have a whole different opinion of the band as individuals.

I blame one man for messing up the band's last album and that is Mr Bob Rock... producer of Simple Plan too btw...
I recall a moment where he sed... Solos are not what today's kids want to hear or something along that line.. This of course makes Kirk Hammet a bit boring (some, not me, would say that it made him even more boring)
I really think the new metallica album gonna be so awsome and their return to glory, but if its another st anger moment... i relly dont know how things are goin to turn out
#32
Cliched, but I think to play and sing Battery takes some doing. Especially as they usually do it last, and you gotta be knackered after 2 hours of playing like he does.
Quote by Dogruitag
i think he wants to dream theater to be considered more metal, so he dyed his beard.

Lmfao, this is the best thread ever, aside from the fact that it involves a girl being harpooned through a tent.

I think we agreed in the Kirk thread that all aspects of Metallica are overrated.

agreed. but his guitar playin is technically better than meh. its ok, not good, not bad, but i hate it though.
#38
Dont really care. All i know is that he has sold more albums than everyone put together on UG and more talented. This is coming from a non metal fan so there
#39
He's a sellout!

Not because of the music, but because he stopped drinking. Quitters never win!

Especially at liver failure.
