LARS ULRICH Is 'Unbelievably Bad' On Drums And METALLICA 'Is Shite,' Say Scottish Post-Rock Icons MOGWAI

Scottish post-rock icons MOGWAI (pictured) have slammed METALLICA as "shite," claiming that they don't understand the controversy surrounding METALLICA being the first metal artist to headline Glastonbury in the U.K. festival's 44-year history.

The members of MOGWAI, who are set to perform at the same time as METALLICA at this year's festival, gave their opinion of the heavy metal giants during a recent interview with Gigwise.

"I can't wait to hear that guy [presumably referring to Lars Ulrich. — Ed.] play the drums again — unbelievably bad," said multi-instrumentalist Barry Burns. "He's terrible."

Singer Stuart Braitwaite added: "I just can't wait until we go all quiet and you can hear 'Enter Sandman' in the background, because we're on at the same time. I don't really see the fuss. They're a pretty big rock band and it's a pretty big rock festival."

When put to the band that the METALLICA's booking had proven controversial with apprehensive Glastonbury punters, MOGWAI drummer Martin Bulloch opined, “Because they’re shite.”

Mick Jagger of THE ROLLING STONES — who headlined the festival last year — recently shared his opinion of METALLICA headlining Glastonbury, saying: "I've seen them live and they're going to be great." Jagger added that his band had a "great time" headlining the event.
