Guns N' Roses, Metallica...Who Cares? But, I Will Take That Dr. Pepper
I had a chance to kill some time and try to unplug and get my mind off the crap that has recently taken over with the recent events. I'm about to sum up Guns N' Roses AND Metallica's newest projects in one fail swoop. Here's the verdict: "I now know what a midlife crisis sounds like". There you have it and quite frankly, that's all they are BOTH worth at this time. Both of these bands don't have all their original members, let alone their original drive to do their best FOR THE FANS. While Metallica is just missing Jason Newsted, they are also suffering lack luster writing and guitar work from the rest of the guys and DON'T EVEN get me started on that whiny bitch Lars Ulrich and his drum playing. Who taught Lars how to use a ride cymbal and told him it was a good idea to use this technique??? Whoever it was needs to be shot. Now, back to GNR or the what's left of them. The only thing original left in this band is Axl Pose...er, I mean Rose(sort of). Here I thought Use Your Illusion I&II sucked...Perhaps "Chinese Democracy" should have been titled, "Use Your Delusion". I have three words left for GNR, "Next stop, Branson." Maybe you can make it there SOLELY on your namesake just like the other yester-year hacks. The only thing that was pleasant coming from this new release is the free Dr. Pepper that was offered up for releasing this crock of shit before the year was up. Seems like the folks at Dr. Pepper got screwed on this deal. The only thing that I could think of that would be an even worse investment would be buying the Detroit Lions. By the way, for those of you that heard of the bomb threat at Best Buy this morning, turns out it was just the release of Chinese Democracy...damage estimates are yet to be determined.
Chinese Democracy = Audio Metamucil
Death Magnetic = Sponataneous Explosive Diarrhea
