Megadeth bassist David Ellefson spoke in a recent interview with Truck Nation and explained his thoughts about farewell tour of Slayer. He said:
“I am surprised by it. Slayer’s young to be retiring. Look, we’ve all worked hard. We’ve headbanged a lot. Our necks hurt. I get it. And I have not talked to the guys, so I don’t know what their understanding is internally.
We’ve been doing this a long time, and I think all of us are fortunate enough to have survived much of the stuff, some of it self-induced and some of it just rock and roll as we know it and the world as we know it.
They had an incredible career, they should be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. I mean, by [Rock Hall’s] own standards, being an innovator, they are that band for sure.”
He also spoke about possibility of The Big Four shows:
“I completely agree with that. I think it would awesome. We can only hope and pray that that would happen. I think it would be a great way to sort of say ‘adios’ to that as far as kind of the ‘Big Four’ of us being together.”
