SHUTUP! I'd like to see you even try to beat Lars in a drummer match. Or beat James or Kirk in a guitar match. Or even beat Rob in a base match! So, just stop trashing people who you could never conquer in a million years, just go back to listening to faggy Jonas Brothers, or whoever, while us, the people who have lives, listen to the greatest band who ever lived. Metallica.

Piss off man, lars is an incredible drummer. I, being a drummer myself, would know. I would loooove to see you try and perform doubles and triples like lars. And until you can out-drum Lars Ulrich, keep it zipped!

LoL! Kip Winger?! Kip Freakin WINGER??!!! Hold up! Anybody know just WHEN the last Winger "Hit" was?? LMAO!!! Hey, you guys know what Kip Winger is known for besides "Winger"? He has a background in Ballet dance! Sure, i guess it's part of the arts, but still, Kippy is a Ballet dancer! I bet he hasn't made much money at it. Ya know what Lars does besides "Metallica"? Lars likes to sit at home and paint!, ya know... put his little goofy brain ideas (love ya Lars..) down on canvas, spread some color around with the brush, etc ..Then he packs all his cute little paintings up and ships em' out to "Christies" auction in NYC,...and they sell for MILLIONS!! He just sold one a few months ago for 14...something million dollars!!! Yeah, you just keep Ballet dancing ,Kiperina! That's where your art niche is. LoL!

Sorry , my bad. This was about Lars' "Drumming Talent" , and yeah, i think Lars is an ok drummer.

Lars is a dwarf, gay, poser. I used to like Metallica...til the little peckered boy opened his mouth. My sister could kick his ass.

ya lars is a shit drummer, every one knows it. the guy doesnt even practice drums anymore.
kip winger is a better singer than james.
reb beach is a MUCH better guitarist kirk.
rod morgenstein is a MUCH better drummer than lars (who is the worst thrash drummer ever).

however cliff was always a better bassist than kip. so i guess that makes it 3-1 to winger. winger might have been teen idols but they were extremely talented ones at that.

btw lars sucks and needs to be replaced by dave lombardo (the true thrash king).

I agree with that.Lombardo would be a major upgrade for Metallica.He's amazing and Lars is crap.

lol Metallicachic101, I'd love to challenge them to a base match, is that like playing Baseball or something? Or are you talking about the BASS guitar? Metallica fans really take this band too seriously, any respectable drummer knows Lars isn't anything special. Winger is 100% right, they are a good band, but their drummer isn't anything special, great businessman, if it weren't for that he'd be replaced by someone good. That's not opinion, it's the honest truth.

Metallica is everything to me bro!
But I have to admit that lars isn't that good anymore...
But in the 80's and early 90's he was (in my opinion) the best.

Lars is not a technically sound drummer. He never has been. And he has lost his chops over time, which is pathetic, because most decent drummers get better over time. At his best, he was an average thrash metal drummer, with an uneven left foot on his double bass patterns, and terrible time (except in the studio ...).

If you think Lars is a good drummer, you either:
A) Are too young / inexperienced to know very much about professional-level music ...
B) Are a die-hard fan boy / girl who is blinded by their love / worship of Lars / Metallica as a whole ...
C) Know very little about drumming, time, technical ability, professional musicianship ...
D) Have no sense of time, chops, accuracy, quality of sound, technicality, technique, or anything else related to high-level drumming ...
E) Any combination of the above.

Lars has admitted he's lacking in drumming talent.

Has the above affected Metallica's success? Not really. Which means there are millions of people who have listened to Lars play with Metallica over the years, and likely enjoyed it. I must admit that I am a vastly superior player to Lars, and am easily in the top 100 in the world, but I have enjoyed two live Metallica shows (Justice Tour and Snake Pit / Wherever I May Roam Tour), and have met Lars and the band at both shows. Trust me, Lars knows he sucks. And, he thinks it funny that people defend him so rabbidly.

Thus, you, and even I, may enjoy Metallica, and they have been wildly successful, but please do not mistake those factors for musical talent. They are often found together (and in the case of the other members of Metallica, their talent more than makes up for Lars' lack), but in the case of Lars Ulrich, his level of suck is high, and getting higher, but has never been a big influencing factor over whether or not the band would do well.

Say what you will about Metallica,but you've got to admit that they've put out memorable stuff. Winger were pretty much a one hit wonder. There's a reason why they were a constant punchline on Beavis and Butthead.
As for Lars' drumming skills,he can be good when he tries,when he doesn't try he's terrible. Lars isn't the best drummer,but he's far from being the worst.

Absolutely PERFECT comment. I couldn't have said it better myself.:)

Metallica are frauds. The only band that was worse than Metallica was probably Ugly Kid Joe or Slaughter. Metallica was the reason that hair bands died a sudden death in the 90's with the grunge era with bands like Nirvana. Metallica was and is corporate payola designed to rip off the masses under the guise of Heavy Metal. Black Sabbath were the real deal as was Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. Metallica has always been fake garbage of miming and lip syncing plagirism.
