I guess that's enough internet for me today.Pasting was not an option in recording back in 1983. I don't think you could even punch edit back then. Not to mention punch editing isn't really used for drums anyway. Hate to ruin your newer, lesser opinion of Lars but he played those takes from start to finish back then. No Pro-Tools not even a computer in the room. And Justice and the Black album were recorded that way too. Although by the Black album they had automated software to mix with and digital punch-edit capabilities.
