In a recent interview on Metallica’s fan magazine “So What!”, Lars Ulrich talked about the criticism he had faced about his drummer abilities.
“sometimes, if I am being interviewed by a journalist who is also a fan, they’ll say, ‘When people say LarsUlrich is a shitty drummer, I defend you.’ Which is cool, but I’ve got to tell you, 20 years later, 30 years later, it just doesn’t register anymore. I am so comfortable with who I am, I’m so comfortable with who Metallica is, I’m so comfortable with our place in all of it. I’ve got an incredible wife, three great kids, my dad and Molly, incredible friends, and lots of cool acquaintances. It’s all good. I’ve got nothing left to prove, so it just doesn’t register anymore.”
