Re: Brian "brain" Mantia
He isn't the right man for Guns N' Roses thats for sure. His playing is sometimes quite sloppy in the old GNR songs as well, adding new fills to old songs that dont't really work. He also does not play You Could Be Mine correctly, at least he could learn it properly! His playing on new songs however is fine.
I haven't seen him in Primus or anything like that, I just don't think he is the right drummer for GN'R.
