Dave Mustaine on Performing With Metallica in 2011: 'It Must've Been Awkward for Kirk to Hear Those Songs Played Like They Were Supposed To'
Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine was in somewhat of a bashing mood during a recent Loaded Radio interview, taking aim at the band's former members Marty Friedman and Nick Menza, as well as Metallica axeman Kirk Hammett.

As reported, Dave compared the return of Menza and Friedman to "putting a rotten tooth back into your mouth," but the Kirk jab was somewhat different.

Discussing the December 2011 performance with Metallica during the group's set of 30th anniversary shows at the Fillmore in San Francisco, Mustaine said, "Well, they gave me an invitation and I thought it was really awesome.

"And I had asked them, 'Do you want me to just play rhythm?' Because, you know, Kirk's in the band. And Lars [Ulrich] said, 'No. Play your stuff.' And I went, 'Alright. Now we're talking.' So I went up there and I did my thing. And it was great."

Dropping the jab, Dave added, "I imagine it must have been really awkward for Kirk watching me play the songs the way that they were supposed to be played in the beginning, but that's open for his artistic interpretation. If he doesn't wanna play it the way that I played it, hey, that's cool."

To give you some straightforward music news, Mustaine recently discussed the band's new material, focusing on the fresh track "Why We Lie to You" and general inspiration for the upcoming release. More info here.
