Metallica Winged: Lars Ulrich's Talent Questioned

(antiMusic) Despite having a Metallica related story already today, we couldn't resist this one. Enjoy: Winger frontman Kip Winger was recently interviewed by rock & roll comic C.C. Banana. Over the course of this irreverent interrogation, Kip discusses his new solo album, his experiences touring with loose cannon Jani Lane and his current feelings toward Lars Ulrich, who famously threw darts at a photo of Kip in Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters" music video.

Kip also reveals his intentions to record another album with Winger and responds to criticisms made earlier this year by Joe Elliott of Def Leppard, who referred to Winger as a "s***e band." Our favorite excerpt from the interview follow:

C.C. Banana: Have you ever thrown darts at a photo of Lars Ulrich? - Kip Winger: I've never done that. I really never had anything against the guy. In fact, when I first heard Metallica's Black Album, I thought it was a really cool record... and then they just started taking shots at me, for whatever reason. But it's okay, Lars is not really that talented. He's got a lot of f***ing money, though, so I'm sure he's happy. I actually felt sorry for him when I saw that "Some Kind of Monster" documentary. He was sitting there next to his dad, just seething with unmoved emotion over things that were still unresolved. It was really kind of sad to watch. But I do like Metallica, they're a good band.
