Dave Mustaine, Kerry King featured in new issue of Revolver

Dave Mustaine and Slayer guitarist Kerry King took part in a joint interview for the September/October 2010 issue of Revolver magazine. On taking part in the seven Sonisphere “Big Four” shows in Europe, Dave Mustaine comments: “It was awesome. It was just like back in the day when we were all just four young bands getting to know each other and hanging out. The first time I went onstage [in Warsaw], James [Hetfield] was up on my side and did that little knuckle-punch thing with me. It was a really cool moment. It was exciting. We’ve all wanted this to happen for a long time, and Metallica finally decided the time was right. Before the first show they threw a dinner for the bands, and I went up to James and said, “I don’t want to repair our relationship. I’d like to have a new one.”"”
