: : I recently heard that from a friend and I was wondering if you have any information to back-up this rumour. I'm far from a Metallica fan but it's interesting to know these things. But hey, if what I heard was true all you metal guys out there maybe this is your chance to get into the real deal.

: For a minute, I thought I stumbled accross the wrong site when I was reading all the musician bashing and "we are better then them anyway" Jazz type talk. Come on guys, Metallica are musicians, Jason was'nt necessarily the best musician in the band and just because he uses a pick does'nt make him any less capable of playing music that pleases an audiance. As for the personal problems...who cares! As for the new bassist....who cares! Well, reasonable or not, that's my 2 cents.......peace.......John

All things considered, Metallica *is* kind of a special case, mainly because of the way they acted during the whole Napster thing (regardless of whether they were right or wrong), and the fact that they lost a *lot* of fans as a result of it.

Rule #1 of being a Popular Musician: Don't Piss Off Your Fans! ;-)
