Re: Lars Ulrich
One joke I use when I hear a loud pounding of any sort is either, "Still a better drummer than Lars Ulrich", or "Who let Lars in here?". That said, he does the job, I enjoy Enter Sandman and Battery. I've never liked Metallica a whole lot, but I realize that without them Disturbed and many other newer bands I do like would have never come to be.
Christopher Walken would be pleased.
