  • I know of Kirk Hammett's reputation as a "bad" soloist but...

    I don't know any Metallica and I don't have the time to delve into it.

    Please cue me in on his worst solos so I can forge my own opinion...

    He's not a bad soloist. His best work is on Shortest Straw. I just don't care for much of there stuff after AJFA.

        I don't know that it's terrible playing, but the wah on "Enter Sandman" (and I hope I've got the right song picked out) shows poor taste.

          Yeah, it's the second part of the solo, around 2:50:

          Sorry I didn't imbed it, but I don't know if that works with a "related" link...

          I'll also add that some of the Kirk hate has got to come from his very effeminate mannerisms and the strong undercurrent of homophobia in the metal world.

                  I've never had a problem with him. What he does fits the band. Somebody like Alex Skolnick in that band just wouldn't be the same.

                    I wish I would have written the solo for Enter Sandman. Hell I'd love to be able to take credit for writing anything they've played over the past 30 years.

                      I know some homosexuals and I don't hate them. I won't be caught out alone with them in a social setting and I can't stand to be around them when they get on the dick hunt. Sorry, but the times I've witness that, it's just really pissed me off and it's not cool at all.

                        I think generally Kirk has worst moments live, I think thats what most people refer to.
