    Too bad you can't hear him on ". . . And Justice for All," because he does some good playing.

    it wasnt next to no bass, it WAS no bass! the guitar hero (or whatever game it was) tracks are at the level of the proper mix, so if you set all the faders at 0 its mixed. you can mute the bass and hear absolutely no difference whatsoever!

    It's mostly just Ulrich and Hetfield because Hammett was only allowed to record the guitar leads back then.

    I read an interview with him were he said he recorded AJFA w/a Steinberger bass and a GK amp & to quote him "it just wasn't happening". Sounds pretty cool here to me though.
