I remember a few years ago waxing about how Bob Rock was a huge problem in Metallica's sound, and how "they should get Rick Rubin! He'd fix everything, he made Reign In Blood for fuck's sake!
" Then the unthinkable happened and they actually got rid of Rock and snatched Rubin. On the one hand my "wish" was granted, but this wish was made long before I came to realize how politics, economy, and above all age play a factor in to making music. Especially for a band like Metallica.
