Lars plays wat fits the song and that works with the band and that is perfectly fine.Look at so many drummers in bands with deals some really arent fantastic players but tey suit the band.
Also lars was a huge inspiration to start playing to countless people so i think that may get him off the hook for nont playng as good as e used to imo
Maybe...but then again, I belive a group of skilled musicians will make better quality songs...
