Megadeth Comments On Big Four Tour Dates

Megadeth front man Dave Mustaine has checked in with the following statement about the band's "Big Four" tour dates:

"Droogies! So now that the Big Four dates have come and gone, I feel it is time to check-in, say, "Hello" and tell you what has been going on in my world. First off, when we left San Marcos and Mustaine Music Studios aka 'Vic's Garage,' we had no idea what to expect, other than the fact that we wanted to make a point; we wanted to make the other bands feel comfortable, we wanted the fans to all leave this momentous occasion feeling completely satiated, we wanted the guys in Metallica to know that we could be depended on to pull our share...

"I don't know if we delivered for everyone, but for the tens of thousands of people each night, and ultimately hundreds of thousands of fans over the entire run of the Big Four festivals (affectionately dubbed 'Sonisphere'), it seemed to me that the fans were finally able to put aside the silly stuff that the press has kept on life support for so many, many years. We did several round-table interviews with a member from each camp of the Big Four, and one thing that was a constant and that we all agreed on was that the press was the responsible parties for keeping the feuds alive.

"You heard it straight from our mouths; we are all at peace with one another, and we all are friends. End of story – or in other words, several shit magazines will now have to learn how to write real interviews, reviews, and features, instead of causing so much turmoil with us four, all in the spirit of selling their publications."

It's great to hear they're all getting along now. Why argue over some "who said what where when" bs from decades ago, especially with these 4, as they've all been extremely succesful in their chosen paths anyway.

I love to hear that supposedly these metal icons are all getting along. However, what ticks me off about the whole festival is that the four bands did not receive equal time on stage. All four of these bands are what got the ball rolling for this little kid in the early/mid-eighties. All four bands have an equal yet different influence on the genre, past, present and future. Why is it that Metallica gets more stage time and attention? Wasn't this part of the Sonisphere Festival dubbed "The Big Four" and not "Metallica and the other three bands?" As usual, Metallica runs away with the show! Even the worst efforts of Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax over the last 14 years have been better than anything Metallica has done over the last 19 years. If the "Big ONE and our Three Special Guests" ever hits the States, lets hope that it is an actual "Big Four" event, and not anything less.

to nyrfan099 post#8 the reason metallica gets the most playing time is because they are the band that sold the tickets to these shows. without them you get less than half the people showing up. so shutup and lets hope they play the usa.
