Recent days, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine constantly shares his ideas about “The Big Four” on Twitter. His recent tweets as follows:
“It [more Big 4 shows] won’t happen. Megadeth are ready but Slayer are on their last orbit and Metallica won’t do it. Big Two anyone? Watch the Big 4 DVD where Kirk says it’s the Big 1. That saddened a lot of people. I was one of them.”
Dave Mustaine claims that Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett said “we’re the big one” on the DVD [‘The Big Four: Live From Sofia, Bulgaria’]. Is this really true? Absolutely. Kirk Hammett says before the show:
“We can show the world, not just the people here but -the world-, who the fucking big one is hahaha” –watch here, 5:00-
In a recent interview, Dave Mustaine talked with Metal Injection and said that Metallica is the main reason why The Big Four shows are not being re-organised.
As you know, a Megadeth fan asked Dave Mustaine, “so what about a “Big 3″tour? Bring Testament instead of Metallica?”. Mustaine responded:
“Megadeth, Anthrax, Exodus, Testament! The new Big 4.”
Metallica is still silent.
