A LOT!
Bob Rock says on the Classic Albums DVD of the black album that they did ALL the fills seperately from the rest of the drum parts. He also says they had to change the heads after every 5 takes or so, because Lars destroyed them after that long. Then he compares him to John Bonham or Keith Moon. Strange man.
