James Hetfield Hits Back At Mustaine’s ‘Supergroup’ Comments

Written by Mike Hohnen on May 11, 2012

He caused drama when he didn’t like them, now he’s at it again even now that he does like them…it’s really no surprise why Metallica frontman James Hetfield has labelled ex-bandmate and Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine “The Dave that we kind of wanted to forget about”.

In a recent interview with the Metallica fan magazine ‘So Loud‘, Hetfield has shut down Mustaine’s recent comments that he had pitched the concept of a supergroup featuring himself, Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, also of Metallica fame, with Megadeth bassist David Ellefson.

“I think especially with Dave, with all of his struggles,” says the frontman. “I see him healthier now. I see him as less of a bitter guy. But I do see a lot of stuff in the press with him talking about jamming with us and making an album. All this other crazy stuff. I read it and say to myself, ‘Hold on. This is the Dave that we kind of wanted to forget about. You know, the big mouth that wants to just go-go-go.”

The normally fiery rockstar seemed fairly relaxed about the subject, obviously after the years of Mustaine’s antics you’d be used to it by now, continuing to mention that: “there is an authenticity about him when he speaks. He doesn’t think too much before he does. He just goes off the cuff. Plus, when he says stuff like that, it’s well-intended.”

Mustaine’s rebuttal will surely come soon.
