Steve says Lars Ulrich is the frontman of Metallica
When the guitarist continued his words, he congratulated the drummer and co-founder of the group Lars ulrich. Referring to his playing style, the guitarist said he has enormous talent. He also said that Lars ulrich is the head of Metallica.
âSometimes people say, ‘Well, Lars Ulrich is not the most technical drummer,’â the guitarist continues. âBut the thing is, great drummers write great parts.
âThere are two ways to do it – you can focus on the technical ability and keep a straight pace, or whatever, but then there’s a guy like Lars who’s really, obviously, a co-writer.
âHe really listens to what James is doing, and he translates those guitar parts on the drums and the orchestras. And I think that’s what makes a great drummer, because some of those drum parts are really inventive. I think he’s a great drummer – for that reason.
âHe is also a conductor who has taken this group to incredible heights.
“So, man, I only have respect for these guys – every one of them.”
