    O.K....just the name causes the venom to cascade down VHlinks Mountain...I am curious as to why...besides the Napster thing. What has he done to piss off so much of the family?

    Saw 3 tour...saw Summer Sanitarium...AVH kicks the shit out of Lars and his mamma on their best day!

    It's not so much Napster as what Napster signifies. It's a sign that Lars is officially in the realm of "sell out," inasmuchas he's forgotten what music should be all about. It isn't about having fun and making music that you love, it's about the bottom line now. How much cash he can rake in.

    And it sucks that besides Newstead, who is now out of the band, everyone else in the band falls into the category of sycophant. Whatever Lars says is now gospel, don't you know?

    Does this all REALLY hurt the recording industry? And industry that was found guilty of price fixing in the first place? Okay, maybe they're only making 1.6 billion a year instead of 2 billions. Woo, watch me shed tears over that.

    Lars acts like his shit don't stink!!! He needs to remember that he is a mediocre drummer at best!!! And that's on a good day.

    Actually I believe that cd sales have increased in the Napster-era. Reall what they are worried about is the fact that people can listen to several tracks on an album before deciding whether to buy it. So we might move back towards quality music rather than hype, name recognition and promotion selling albums. Which of course would hurt Metallica

    Lars himself is an arrogant little troll and a crappy drummer.

    Well, I totally agree with Lars' stance on Napster, yet I think he's a total fool for having made it. In rock and roll, nothing is more important than perception; and now the perception is that Metallica are money hungry.

    But virtually everyone at that level of success is aware of the bottom line. We just want to ignore that and turn a blind eye to it. We want to think that they spend all their time in this parallel universe while the truth is they spend time with lawyers and agents and managers checking the bottom line. At that level, one of their jobs is to be a business man, and I think Lars is facing wrath because he has put the spotlight on that fact.

    Jason's outta the band?! He was my favorite one of the bunch. "Right now, Jason's thinking about a SOLO project."

    And from what I'm hearing, that solo project, Echobrain, should be pretty good.
