This guy pisses me off just about as much as the entire PMRC. Sure, he might have some talent in the realm of rythm and percussion, but that is all for naught when he has no brain. If youre not sure why i could possibly be angy with this little fuck, think back to the days of Napster, and how he was, and still is, a huge vocal opponent of file sharing. He can gift wrap his adgenda all he wants, but his beef comes down to the fact that if people are no longer buying his albums, hes loosing money. First of all, do they (Metallica) need any more money? Second, if he wants money, he should concentrate on selling out venues (which im sure they do all the time) instead of trying to get as many royalties as possible from albums. Smart musicians realize that real money comes from concerts, not album sales, seeing as how record companies have their hands on so many aspects of an artists' work. Also, smart musicians realize that any publicity is good publicity. Look at Radiohead, they released "In Rainbows" free online, and gave fans the opportunity to donate while they were at it. Even with that, it took #1 on Billboard. I believe Trent Reznor of NIN did the same sort of thing. Pretty Lights, a D&B/Dubset group from CO also has all three of their albums free for download at their website (www.prettylightsmusic.com). These are just 3 examples of the evolution of music and artist promotion. These bands know that if their careers as musicians are going to be succesful, they'll do whatever is needed to draw in fans and sell out shows. So, in closing.....uh.....oh yea, fuck Lars Ulrich. Also, if you believe yourself to be a true Metallica fan, and have so much as one downloaded or pirated song of theirs, Lars im sure hates you.
