Dave Mustaine Now Refuses to Be Asked ANY Question About Metallica
Even if it’s a soft toss question about a festival tour of the Big Four: Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, and Slayer.
It was a question asked in a recent interview with Metal Insider. Mustaine (in a photo, above, in better beer days with Hetfield) wouldn’t bite — well, kind of:
You know, there’s no way to answer any questions about METALLICA for me. If I answer them politely, I get reamed. If I answer them funny, I get reamed. If I say something like when I said I believed my record was better than theirs, and even in that comment I said that they’ve got plenty of records that are better than anything that I’ve done, except this one… And for once it’s nice to be on the opposite side. That was taken apart. “I think my record’s better than theirs.” Well, you didnt finish the sentence, you twat. I have no desire to answer any questions, at all, about METALLICA. If something comes up, you’ll know, but as far as I’m concerned, I can’t say anything about those guys, and I won’t.
Will the Metallica questions keep coming? Should they stop coming, even if Mustaine requests it? Not sure that’s solid music journalism.
