'DethMetallica' Project Still On Dave Mustaine's Mind!

Dave Mustaine - Megadeth

Dave Mustaine would still like to form his proposed 'DethMetallica' supergroup project with Megadeth bandmate David Ellefson and Metallica's Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield. In a recent interview with Minneapolis radio statio 93X Mustaine gave his thoughts on the new band he suggested last year.

Asked about current progress of his 'Supergroup', Mustaine said, "That was just me talking. I don’t think James and Lars are interested in doing that. It would be cool, and I’ve mentioned it to them before. I just think that they’re so busy that they don’t have time to do something like that. My wife and James’ wife are friends, and they talk a lot. From what I know, too, there’s a lot of work that those guys do, and they’re gone a lot, and they tour a lot, so for them to take on a project like that, I think it would have to really be a labor of love."

Mustaine was more optimistic about Ellefson's participation in 'DethMetallica' and said, "Of course, David and I would do it, ’cause I think it would be great to play with them again. When I went up there and did the 30th anniversary thing, I thought it was really cool. Megadeth is doing really fine right now. I’m not in the place to be asking for favors from anybody. I like who I am right now, I’m satisfied with where my career’s at. But don’t kid yourself, if we got together and played, I imagine it would be really cool. It wouldn’t be anything like Megadeth, of course, and it wouldn’t be anything like Metallica. But we’ll see what happens. Maybe with enough people asking them, they’ll buckle."
