Dave Mustaine Apologizes for His Stupid Talk
Whenever I hear of Megadeth in the news I still think of Dave Mustaine being a former member of Metallica. I bet whenever he hears of Metallica doing something big he thinks the same thing. I mean Megadeth has had a great run and sold a ton of records worldwide, but that pales in comparison to his former band Metallica. I’m pretty sure he is a bit jealous of his former band and I don’t blame him.
Mustaine recently reunited with his former mates and played with them, after which he made a comment that came back to bite him in the ass. He was suggesting that their were plans in the works for a Metallica-Megadeth supergroup, which was completely false. Not that it would be the worst thing in the world if the two joined forces, but c’mom Dave, why would you say that without it being true? Jealousy, that’s my thought.
Mr. Mustaine issued this statement apologizing for the comment,
I probably shouldn’t have said stuff like that. I guess some people may think I’m trying to use that as a way to get publicity. So I can see where there would be some feelings about it. That wasn’t my intention. I won’t ever mention it again. I like James and I thought what he said was flattering, then it kind of went the opposite way, then it kind of came back again. I guess my whole thing was, I just wanted them to know that I loved them and I missed them, and I enjoyed playing with them. If that’s not mutual, then I understand. I still respect him and I still care about the guy.
That statement is a great cover-up for what I believe was just a publicity thing. He went on to say that he wasn’t trying to imply anything was going to happen, rather he just was wishing it would.
Dave had a two decade feud with Metallica before finally clearing the air over that last couple years. I don’t think the statements he made will do anything positive for their future relationship.
