    I shouldn't really be saying this, however, I think it's important.

    The buzz from Lopez's snare was kind of distracting during the show, during the non-drum parts. I don't know why he didn't shut it off (you know, the lever to drop the snare wires).

    But aside from this, the show was great, Lopez is great, and Mikael is a genuis as well as a very friendly and personable live performer. It was an evening of pure magic.

    And PT is just fucking incredible live. Damn.

    You know absolutely nothing about metal! The "in-thing" to do is to replace it with an oil tanker. Thank goodness there are bands out there that know how a snare should be used.

    Isn't that what Lars did on St Bob? Hence the frying pan drum sound?

    Uh-oh...don't tell me Lopez has been 'influenced' by Lars Ulrich...:(

    Holy shit...hope Mikael doesn't start singing like Hetfield...

    *shudders*

    that 'buzz' is called sympathetic buzz and if it pops up it can be a bitch to get rid of, as the snare vibrates to one particular note. shutting it on and off makes a rather crackly sound which would sound awful amplified.
