Richard Gehr, Music & Sound Output, September 1988

LARS ULRICH has recently risen from the sleep, dreamless or otherwise, of the very successful. His band, billed fourth (between Led Zep wannaboys Kingdom Come and metal morons Dokken) on the Monsters or Rock tour – a.k.a. the "Fucking Monsters of Fucking Rock" tour, a.k.a. the "weekend" tour – has garnered at least as much critical oom-pah as their co-"Monsters," even Van Fucking Halen.
