    He was pretty good, though I must plead ignorance since I havent listened to any Metallica in years. His death was the death of the band, thats for dang sure.

    it wasn't even close to his death of the band



    a bassist doesn't add a whole lot to a band like Metallica, Newstead filled in just fine, as has Trujillo, I suppose you consiser it death of the band because their music changed, but like Newstead said, "yeah we sell out, we sell out stadiums every night".

    I see what you are saying. My comment was meant to be subjective. Im sure they have plenty of good stuff after Master....I just dont like it that much.

    I also must plead a little ignorance, as I must admit that I havent listened to ANY Metallica in years.

    Ride the Lightning is my favorite, but I have enjoyed their newer stuff throughout the years.
