We love Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax and have been wanting them to do another Big 4 show or possibly take it out on the road for a full blown tour! How cool would that be?!?! Well we might not ever get a chance to see it again, Tom Araya of Slayer spoke with Gazette.net and told them that "Politics of character" in one of the other bands is standing in the way of doing more shows:
"I don't want to say politics is preventing that," Araya said. "It's not the politics between bands; it's the politics of character in one particular band."
"We had an issue that came up on the New York show, which really freaked everybody out, but the New York show happened. I think, in all honesty, that was the last time we did the 'Big Four.'
"I think another 'Big Four' show might not happen. They could prove me wrong.
"Those shows, basically, even though it was called the 'Big Four,' it was done through METALLICA. It was with METALLICA's blessing that allowed those shows to happen.
"If they want to continue and do a couple more shows, I think that would be great… If we were to sit down with them and communicate with them, that's what I'd tell them."
After reading that you can't help but assume that he is talking about the one and only Dave Mustaine of Megadeth and considering Dave's track record he isn't the easiest guy to get along with/work for. Heres to hoping that everyone can get on the same page and we can see the Big 4 again!
