Dave Mustaine Hopes For Megadeth/Metallica Supergroup
Megadeth's Dave Mustaine says he wants to form a Megadeth/Metallica supergroup. He told Texas radio station 97.1 The Eagle Rocks, "I've talked to Lars [Ulrich] and James [Hetfield] about me and David [Ellefson, Megadeth bassist] doing a supergroup record with Lars and James." "Well, James said 'no', but it's still kind of out there in the air", he said. "I'm gonna keep hammering on him. It's on my bucket list." Mustaine was one quarter of the original Metallica lineup in the 1980s, but was fired. Kirk Hammett replaced him. After years of animosity between the bands, Metallica and Megadeth have been touring together recently as part of the Big Four Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax. While Mustaine is reaching out to his ex-Metallica bandmates, he says there is no way back for Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman. "It's not that he's not welcome, it's just that there's no position for him. And Marty's not as good as Chris [Broderick, current Megadeth guitarist]." "And Marty wanted to be a pop guitar player. He left to join a girl in a band in Japan... The lineup featuring Friedman [and drummer Nick Menza] wasn't the most important lineup anyways. The lineup that we have right now has achieved more than those guys ever did. If you think about it, the groundwork, the building the band back up from nothing... Marty and Nick got in the band when the band was already huge." Thanks for the report to Michael Leonard, Gibson.com.
