I enjoyed this book & the content immensely. It was sad seeing the pics of Gar Samuelson & Cliff Burton. Wish they were both still with us. Both Dave & James were so messed up, meaning, strung out, loaded, whatever you want to call it!!! It just amazes me that either one of them were able to pick up a guitar & play the correct end of it!!! It's Hilarious!!! I've seen some of the videos from The Stone, etc., and mostly, as per par it was Dave Mustaine that held The Great Metallica "together" during their stoned, drugged, drunk, hung-over days NOT Mr. James Hetfield!!!!! And, at that time, he COULD, actually, SING!!!! But, I guess, he was or had microphone fright????? Who knows???
Thank Goodness for Dave Mustaine & his ability to relate to the fans, sing, play one fantastic outstanding guitar, AND THROW A BIT OF COMEDY IN ALSO!!! HE IS AN AWESOME MUSICIAN!!! I CAN'T SAY THE SAME FOR HETFIELD. HE CAN PLAY A GUITAR, , but I've never seen him relate to his fans in any videos, not a bit of cutting-up or comical attitude about him, nor does his singing come ANYWHERE CLOSE TO DAVE MUSTAINE'S!!!
Lars is one hell of a damned good drummer & I would've LOVED to have heard Cliff Burton as I understood he sounded like Hendrix.
Overall, I enjoyed the book & pictures. Thanks for the Memories!!!!
