The real genius is the man that one day takes Kirk's wah pedal away.

Acutally he doesn't write much, and as talented as he is, Dave Mustaine would have been way better. Sometime when my imagination wanders I wonder how awesome Metallica would have been if Dave hadn't been fired.

And also Newsted sucked.

He doesn't write words, but he certainly writes all of his solos, and while Mustaine may play better Rhytham than hetfeild theres no way in frozen hell that Dave plays better than Kirk. On what basis are you making this claim, Mega death was at its best when Marty Friedman was ripping solos for them. Lets not mince words sweet pea, Kirk owns Daves ass.

James is an insane rhythm guitarist so why would Dave play. He isn't to great at lead and Kirk seems to fit better with the bands image.

We got two great bands out of it instead of one great band. I'd take Metallica and Megadeth over Metallideth anyday.

Personally, I preferred Jason.

I wouldnt say that, individualy, hes very good, compared to all the metal shreders out there, hes pretty average, but being a member of a very popular band he gets much more acclaim than most of his peers, despite how much better they are.

He does have excellent chemistry with the band and he is one of my favorite players, but i dunno about calling him a genius, Hetfield is much more involved with the songwriting, composition, guitar riffs, etc.... And Hammetts solos aren't anything too complex that someone like Hetfield couldnt play them as well, it just gives Hammett something to do.

1. Both Dave and James play rhythm better than Kirk.

2. Dave is better from a technical point of view, both arent super impressive when it comes to their solos, they rely too much on pentatonics, but its easy to say that Kirk is the better soloist.

3. If you want to bring something as irelivent as emotion until this then how would you measure feeling in someones playing?... By what notes they choose to play?... Theres no objective way to measure what sounds good because everyone has a different opinion of what sounds good.
