You are so right JJ--I feel they *lost * it when they changed their image --cut their hair ect
they just weren't the same--changing you look should have no effect on the music---( Rob is bald now but he still sounds better than ever)--thye started out good & lost a lot of steam these past years [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by jimmyjames from Friday, June 26, 2009 5:51:18 AM)
The problem with Metallica is that the guys in the band think they are more talented than they are, the fact that their music has become irrelevant over the last 15 years proves it. They've run out of ideas, now they just do Metallica by the numbers. also their egos have gotten out of control. Ulrich was always a prick and hasn't changed but Hetfield is the one whose ego has blown way out of proportion to his talent. No wonder Jason Newsted left the band, must be torture hanging around with a couple of asswipes like that.
