hmmm I don't think Lars should be mentioned besides Bonham or Moon. I always thought he was one of the worst drummers in metal.
Anyway I don't agree on the drummer comment. There are truly great drummers out there like Dave Lombardo (Slayer, ex-Apocalyptica), Richard Christy (Death, Control Denied), Gene Hoglan (ex-Death), Nick Barker (ex-Dimmu Borgir, ex-Cradle Of Filth), Hellhammer (Mayhem), Raymond Herrera (Fear Factory), Proscriptor (Absu), Pete Hammoura (Nile) etc.
And that guitarist comment is absolutely wrong. Recent years have seen so many great guitarists come up. Alexi Laiho (Children Of Bodom) is one of the absolute best new guitarists. Another rather underrated guitarist is Jani Liimattainen (Sonata Arctica). And who can ever forget the undeniable talent of Chuck Schuldiner and in particular the new musicians he found for his project Death (Shannon Hamm for instance). I have always stated that Nile are the future of death metal and the skill of Karl Sanders and Dallas Toler-Wade is undeniable.
and btw Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit are not representative of good music (catchy or not).
