No, man, what I'm trying to say is basically that when he does try to "improvise" he goes off-beat and out of time. Simple as that. Everyone can hear it, even my dad commented afterwards on his drumming without me bringing it up. If he just stuck to the way he plays the songs on the albums the band would be better off for it, that's all I'm saying. He could pull a Brann Dailor and throw random fills around for a whole set for all I care, as long as he stays in time, which he has a hard time doing, and this is surprising to me that such a glaring error would be in the cog of a machine as big as Metallica.
