Age is obviously a factor, but I don't fault them for getting old. Overkill and Testament still destroy stages live as well as they did in the 80's. Metallica does not.

Metallica is the reason I'm into metal. I used to be a proud Metallica fanboy. They aren't worth the price of admission anymore, sadly.
With all due respect, when I saw Testament @ GMM 2008 their sound was incredibly awful. And if you want to see a lazy band, that doesn't even like to tour, go see Slayer. Not that Metallica have never played lesser shows (they were better in 2009 than in 2004), but come on. And uh, Overkill should be at least as big as dickhead Kerry's group.

It's impossible to argue with people on message boards when you admit you still like these guys.
