Honestly, you absolutely could be called worse than this. Fozzy singer Chris Jericho has called Metallica’s Lars Ulrich, “The Ringo Starr of Heavy Metal.” Jericho says bagging on The Beatles’ drummer is the same as bagging on Ulrich: people do it because it’s “funny.” On the Metallica podcast …And Podcast for All!, Jericho says, “Lars is now the Ringo of heavy metal. And what I mean by that is that Ringo plays what’s best for the song — not what the most flashy part is, not what is gonna get him on the cover of Modern Drummer [magazine]. He plays what’s right for the tune. And that’s why Lars is great.”

What do you think of Lars Ulrich’s drumming?
