MASTODON's BRANN DAILOR Got In Fight for LARS ULRICH

Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor praised Lars Ulrich for his efforts against music piracy, saying on Let There Be Talk:

He was totally right. No one gives him any glory now.

Everyone gave him so much shit about it, saying he’s just a rich rockstar. No, he was trying to protect the little guy that’s gonna be coming up, [like we once were].

The only way we’re putting any food on our tables and our floors for our pets is out there on tour.

Where bands would do a couple tours a year, now it’s just non-stop touring. That’s not healthy, my friend! [Chuckles]

Dailor also said:

Lars was one of my guys, I love Lars and I love his playing. I don’t know why [he gets a bad reputation]. It really bothers me. If someone talks shit about him – I stuck up for him in middle school and I’ll stick up for him now!

I once got in a fight in middle school for him. We went to see Metallica [on the 'Justice' tour], Queensryche was opening, and their drummer was Scott Rockenfield, great drummer.

The next day, some kid talked smack about Lars. ‘Scott Rockenfield’s way better, Lars sucks!’ I was like, ‘Fuck you!’ We got into it, tussled a little bit. I told Lars about it, he was proud of me. [Laughs]
