Ulrich has been criticised for being a poorly skilled drummer by some fans and media and for diminished performance over the years.
Lars spoke about his own drumming technique in book called “Rhythm Presents 100 Drum Heroes”:
“The criticism used to bother me, back in the day – and I spent a lot of time overcompensating for that on the early records. But then you wake up one day and you’re like, ‘whatever.’ It hasn’t bothered me for about 15 years. I’m no Joey Jordison. I’m no Mike Portnoy, and I have nothing but love and respect and admiration for all those guys.
When I hear some of the young dudes, they blow my mind with what they can do with their feet and stuff – but it’s not something that makes me go, ‘I need to feel better about myself so I’m gonna learn how to do what they do with my feet.’ I’m not a particularly accomplished drummer but I am very, very, very good at understanding the role of the drums next to James Hetfield’s rhythm guitar. I guarantee you I’m the best guy in the world for that, and that’s enough for me!“
