The rocking solo after his vocal contribution is so much like a slide whistle on the bozo show to me.
That's what all of Kirk's solos would have sounded like if there weren't people in the studio editing his solos into something musical.
Yet ironically he's the only member of the band who is even vaguely bearable.
He just wants to play boring wah wah solos and ride his horses.
Cool mustache, James.
"Put my bass stuff back in And Justice and we'll talk."
They were total asshats to Jason. I mean, sure, he was no Cliff Burton, but who was? And this is a man who took time out of his busy schedule to play in a band with a couple of little kids. I'd like to see Lars "I'm To Old For This Napster Shit" Ulrich jump off his high horse and play drums for a pair of twelve year olds once in awhile.
Newsted was always the guy who did the really great PR stuff for them, too. He was a far better public face for this band than the others, and I wonder if they ever realized it.
James was the dumb, angry redneck, Lars was the prissy rich kid, and Kirk was the soft-spoken fairy. Jason was the cool, down to Earth guy you wanted to hang out with.
Drink beer with James, and he'd get belligerent and start punching your friends. Drink with Lars, and he'd hog all the beers and leave you with the tab. Drink with Kirk, and he'd ask you to go get him some wine coolers instead. But Jason? He'd be the fucking MAN. Of all the members of high-era Metallica, he was the one you'd most like to have a beer with.
100% accurate assessment of 90's-tallica, with the added caveat that James probably had already started drinking before you got there so the punching was likely already going on.

I liked Jason because he didn't do that stupid crab walk shit that their new bassist does. He'd just bang his head and strut around on stage. He also didn't stick around for that freak show of a documentary. He was the only member of Metallica who had enough dignity to keep his mid-life crisis private.
I like Jason because he left Metallica and joined Voivod.
Metallica is the Guns n' Roses of metal.
In Guns defense, aside from prima donna Axl the rest of the band looked like very laid back guys, sure, drug addicts and alcoholics, but still quite calm. Axl was like mixing Lars, Hetfield and Kirk all together and then adding an extra dose of assholery.
If Lars had died on that bus instead of Cliff the world would be ruled by Metal by now.
