Yeah, I thought it was really great, apart from Mustaine who hardly says anything at all and looks totally burned. What, that man is supposed to be "clean", are you kidding me?

I think everyone got their fair share of talk time. And they all look tired, not burned.

Kerry King got a little off topic. It's interesting to see that he does his interview alone especially after Slayer didnt show up for the Diamond Head cover except for Lombardo

Well... to my eyes Mustaine seemed totally out of it, and that's why I said it... what's the big deal?

Heaven & Hell were set to play the Switzerland "Big Four" tour date as well, would've been awesome to hear Ronnie's powerful voice along with the the rest of the legends that make up that band.
