Dave Mustaine: 'I Didn't Say That No More Big Four Shows Can Happen'
Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine recently addressed Slayer singer Tom Araya's comments about "the politics of character in one particular band" preventing new Big Four concerts, pointing out that he's not the one to blame.

"I didn't say that [no more "Big Four" shows were ever going to happen again]. I said that I'm not the one to ask," Dave said during a Metal Sucks podcast chat. "I love Tom. I think that all the hardship that we've had has been really sad, because, again, the media and stuff like that sometimes..."

Mustaine continued (via Blabbermouth), "People back in the day would try and propagandize everything I would say or put this inflammatory twist on whatever. There was things I did and said that caused some problems between Tom and I, and we worked it out.

"So, man, I have no problem with him or Anthrax or Metallica, so I don't know where that came from. It could be some really old stuff that got regurgitated again. But, you know, I buried the hatchet a long time ago with those guys," the frontman concluded.

Back in November, Araya told Gazette: "I don't want to say politics is preventing that. It's not the politics between bands; it's the politics of character in one particular band. We had an issue that came up on the New York show, which really freaked everybody out, but the New York show happened. I think, in all honesty, that was the last time we did the Big Four."
