: : 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.

: : Dave Wood

: 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,

>>> Well, yeah, sort of...They play instruments, I guess that makes them
musicians...They get their point across though, don't they?..Who am I
to judge..I can only do that by choosing to buy or not buy their
product. I choose to do the latter; no disrespect intended..As I said,
I've just never been a fan..Oh well..

Jason was'nt necessarily the best musician in the band

>>>> Again, only my own subjective opinion; there seemed to be a
"depth" to Jason that I didn't really see in the other chaps;
garden variety shredders/bashers...Plenty of those kinds of cats
hanging out at on Saturdays at the local Guitar Store..
Just my humble opinion.....

and just because he uses a pick does'nt make him any less capable of playing music that pleases an audiance.

>>>>>Nope, sure doesn't...And pleasing the audience is the bottom line
here, literally and figuratively...The end result is ultimately
more important than the methodology...Use your big toe for all
I care!! :-)

As for the personal problems...who cares!

>>> Yup...

As for the new bassist....who cares!

>>>Yup again..

Well, reasonable or not, that's my 2 cents.......

>>>>Money well spent?
