Best Members of Metallica
The Top Ten
Greatest Vocalist ever, I have been a fan of metallica since I was ten, I loved listening to enter sandman, then got into thier less known stuff. James will always be rhe best vocalist ever, just listen to Nothing else matters, mama said and low mans lyric and you will see just how amazing his vocals are, METALLICA 4 EVA!
Greatest rhythm guitarist of all time and the fastest right hand out there.
If four people are god, then it's Maynard James Keenan, James Hetfield, Danny Carey, and Dave Mustaine.
I get the table thing.
Everyone chill out, I'm a table
Should be No. 1.
Why was Trapped Under Ice and Escape the worst songs on Ride The Lightning? Probably because they were the only ones where Cliff Burton wasn't one of the writers.
Why was Master of Puppets so good? Well, It probably wouldn't of been so good if Cliff Burton didn't write some of the song. Damage Inc. would of been my least favorite song in the album if Burton didn't write it, and I would of hated Orion if it weren't for him.
Thinking about others (Wikipedia), Check.
Made Metallica a good band, Check.
Pretty much the best Metallica member of all time.
How can you put this god in the 4th place he deserves to 1st RIP CLIFF!
There isn't a band out there that this guy wouldn't have been the most valuable member of.
He must be the first one. He is the greatest bassist in history.
He is there best guitarist
Very original guitarist
Ok, so Dave Mustaine was just a talented songwriter and guitar player, who was famous for being good at it.
Kirk Hammett is a terrible guitarist, who uses a wah pedal to make things easy, and was only famous because of the band he's in. His riffs were also not as good (except for Enter Sandman) and the solos were just ok.
He was underrated because Cliff was there in Metallica. He was a better vocal than James in Reload age.
He was bullied by James and Lars...I'm so sorry for him...
A great musician with a great mind-set. The band was lucky to have him while they did.
He was the best live performer that Metallica never had. I wish he never left the band...
Lars Ulrich is a legend. And I know you guys think I'm crazy but in actual fact you are the one that is crazy. METALLICA would not be METALLICA without Lars. People don't really give him the credit that he deserves. For example in Enter Sandman his drumming is spot on and so badass.which is why it is one of my favourite songs of all time. And I'm sure that TRUE METALLICA FANS would agree with me. STOP HATING ON LARS!
Overhated, yet he's my favorite drummer. metallica wouldn't be metallica without lars.
THE REASON WHY ENTER SANDMAN WASNT SO TERRIBLE, and still sucked.
The bass player is always the coolest member in Metallica
Robert Should be #3
Dave is an an incredible musician, there is no doubt about that. However, he was just not the best fit for Metallica, and if he were still with Metallica to this day, then there would be no Megadeth.
I think Metallica should've stuck with their original guitarist and bassist.
People give him more credit then he deserves. He isn't even as technical as his own guitarist in megadeth
Shouldn't be on the list because he was only a member for less than a year and didn't even contribute to the band. All he got was a garage demo, and played during the 30th anniversary. I might of put him in the top 3 if he never left Metallica, and they probably would've always been good.
But he decided to quit and let Metallica get terrible. Cliff Burton wasn't too bad, but if he were still alive, I bet Metallica would be worse than they are today. Jason Newsted was actually pretty good, had a nice bassline in "My Friend of Misery", but none of the albums were as good. Robert Trujillo is just the metal bassist you shouldn't care about because when he joined, they were making St. Anger, and Death Magnetic and Lulu came out, and James became a table.
So basically, thanks to him quitting the band, Metallica became terrible, but not until after Burton's death, and this is why nobody cares about him. Also, he was not a placeholder, he was a real member.
Did the bass on St. Anger after Newstead left and before they hired Trujillo
