Megadeth's Dave Mustaine: "Why I'm so hated"


Megadeth's Dave Mustaine was recently interviewed by Westword.com, you can read some excerpts below.



About why he thinks he is "openly despised" on "a handful of web sites", he said: "I think a lot of it goes back to the breakup from Metallica. There are people that have picked up that feud, and they don't even know why they're choosing sides."

He continued: "I have nothing against Metallica fans. I was in both bands. I like Lars Ulrich and I like James Hetfield and, contrary to what people say, I do think Kirk Hammett is a good guitar player."

Mustaine added: "In the beginning, when I was bitter, yeah, there was shit going back and forth. They were justifying firing me, and I was telling them that they were wrong. That's just been perpetuated over and over again. It's been put to bed. I've got no beef with those dudes. We're two totally different bands."
