Rolling Stone magazine recently asked METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich which band was the most fun to party with on the road. "GUNS N' ROSES," the drummer replied. "Everything you've heard is true. Use your imagination. That summer we toured with them, '92, it was the most fun in terms of the girls and the drugs and the debauchery. At the same time, four months was plenty. We sort of walked out of there going, 'I'm really glad I got to experience that. Now I'll crawl back into my safer cubicle with METALLICA.' "
