Facts Every Music Fan Should Know About METALLICA


Dave Mustaine’s Reunion Was Life-Defining

Beamed around the world in a pretty revolutionary move back in 2010, many purchased cinema tickets to watch the first performance of The Big Four; Metallica’s handful of gigs where they would be accompanied by all their main rivals from the San Francisco thrash-scene of the 80’s – Slayer, Anthrax, and most importantly Megadeth. Formed as a giant furiously-recorded middle finger to the band back in ’85, booted-out guitarist Dave Mustaine formed Megadeth with the sole purpose of sticking it to his former friends. There has never been a conclusion to the Metallica vs. Megadeth debate, yet come the end of these Big Four gigs, Metallica invited the other bands onstage for one big group singalong.
