These 2 quotes show me you are just a "Dave guy" as do the rest of your points. Which is cool too. To each their own. I just never liked his voice.

And again anyone who bashes the Black Album is just doing so because they "sold out". Which I never agreed with. They were just too good for people to catch on finally. And musicians have different musical tastes than the rest of us. They always look for weird shite. Everything they covered they made better. Breadfan (who the hell is Buggee) and Turn The Page? Covering turn the page shows he can sing. Maybe he wanted to sing and not just scream all the time. I am sure it is helpful during a show to have a Turn the Page or Nothing Else Matters to give the voice a break and keep playing.

You're probably still mad that they cut their hair.

John Entwistle. And you are correct, no matter how much I really don't care for the who. J.E. was simply as good as they get.

But, I got a kick out of watching the 'Who's Next' episode of the Classic Albums series when Entwistle gives major props to John Paul Jones.

Just a 'Dave guy'? How about just someone who appreciates good songwriting rather than being in the bag for one particular member of a band.

Oh, horse shite. It's all about the music. I could give frick all about how many albums someone does or doesn't sell. It's like when a bunch of Tool fans called them sell-outs for sighing with a major, and like Mayard says, they can point that finger up their ass.

The Black Album is shite because the songs are atrocious. Lyrically it's lame, the arrangements are clunky as a worn out gear box, and it's one big cliche after the next. It's also the album where James first affected that god awful, overly emotive singing style he's used ever since.

quote:

They consciously went for a more mainstream sound, not more weird. And no, musicians don't have different taste than the rest of us.

Budgie is one of the most awesome heavy rock bands from the 70s. 'Crash Course In Brain Surgery' off the original Garage Days EP was one of theirs. This is my fav:

Budgie - Running From My Soul

Who gives a frick about hair? It's all about the music.

I like what you have to say!

quote:

Megadeth has never stopped making great music. His catalog of awesome tunes dwarfs Metallica's after ...And Justice. Hell, he's put out more good albums in just the last decade than Metallica has over their whole career.


Which brings up another great topic: Who got the last laugh? Mustaine or the guys in Metallica?


I'd argue that while Metallica has enjoyed more commercial success, that Mustaine has been an artistic force in the genre and probably garners more respect within the community. And that probably gives him the last laugh.

Megadeth has made one good album in the last 20 years. Their 80s stuff is on par with Metallica's 80s stuff.

re: What would Metallica be like if Cliff Burton had never died?


They almost have parallel careers. Both made great music in the 80s then both came out with more commercial sounding albums in the early 90s. I think the black album and Countdown to Extinction are both great by the way with the black album being a little better. Both bands went to shite in the 90s, though the Loads are still listenable and better than any Megadeth album from that time period. Both bands came back with strong efforts in the late 00s and then went back to putting out more shite. Megadeth's last few albums have at least been better than Lulu though.

That is simply not true. For one, "Youthanasia" is a tremendously underrated album.
