Keith Richards Thinks Metallica and Sabbath Are Jokes
According to the paper, Richard shared this view of rock, "It sounds like a dull thud to me. For most bands, getting the syncopation is beyond them. It's endless thudding away, with no bounce, no lift, no syncopation."
Two of the biggest names in heavy metal were also singled out by Richards. "Millions are in love with Metallica and Black Sabbath," he said. "I just thought they were great jokes."
But he saved his biggest criticism for hip-hop. "Rap - so many words, so little said," he said with a laugh. "What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there.
"All they need is a drum beat and somebody yelling over it and they're happy. There's an enormous market for people who can't tell one note from another."
