i cant help but wonder what would've come out of Mustaine, Ulrich, Hetfield and Eleffson ever writing original material together at any point in history

The earth would have imploded from the sheer energy their egos demand from the universe.

aye ive seen sporadic talk around some blogs suggesting the ego-bit might get in the way of the sonisphere gigs and hamper a possible American tour

i like your description haha

from David Ellefson: "Just finished our first Big Four
show here in Warsaw, Poland. Simply amazing!! ANTRHAX sounded great with
Joey Belladonna back on vocals. SLAYER did their usual
thing of annihilating the place. Metallica are taking the
stage now and with about 100,000 people in attendance it's flat out
mind-blowing and huge to be here. Vibes are great amongst all of us and
this is a dream come true for the bands, too."

i sure wish i was there, front and centre.

Maybe Jeff is out drinking or something. I would love to see this make the US but too much ego. It would be a ticking time bomb. But i'm still hopeful nonetheless.

I'm curious as to what percentage of all metal bands can be tied to at least one person in this picture in one way or another. :lol:

Dave: This is great!

Kerry: Why the hell does this guy have his arm around me.

Scott: This is going to bring us popularity!

James: Heh heh screw these guys.

Dave and Lars have been on speaking terms publicly since before some kind of monster, as well as dave and kerry... there's been reports (and even dave himself over the now defunct MegadetH radio) saying that him and Kerry have patched things over and have grown up and out of past things... i would still like to be around them backstage and see them interact... would be interesting.

this photo is older now (a good few hours) but Jeff is included...

this is during the last photocall before stage time.

Just realized Broderick isn't in this shot. So there still isn't a photo with everyone in it :bouville:

Maybe there's some sort of secret feud between Jeff and Chris where they can't even be in the same room :lol:

I'm sure the only times the bands interacted with each other that much was when the photos are being taken. It's easy when you're as big as these bands (especially Metallica) to get to and from the festival site and to the stage without talking to anyone. Happens at festivals all the time even with other bands that might hate each other (I.e. Limp Bizkit and Slipknot both playing Rock am Ring and Download last year).

+1 but this is (IMO) a chance you cant be blowing bc of ego's the world is watching...

http://bi.gazeta.pl/im/4/8024/z8024624X,Liderzy-Wielkiej-Czworki--Od-lewej--Kerry-King--Slayer--.jpg

here we have half of Megadeth (Kerry and Dave) half of Metallica (Dave and James) and the unexpected east coast offspring (Ian)

more photos from a polish news paper HERE (http://warszawa.gazeta.pl/warszawa/51,95190,8022776.html?i=0)

more ONLY (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hivzFKh7EY) footage (from closer to the stage, better sound) and some of the Joe Jackson cover (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qiftlLTqyAQ) they did... i wanna see their Heaven and Hell one though :eyes:

it seems to me Dave did not have far as many issues with being around james+them as it had been reported during Woodstock'99

haha yea good eye! maybe jeff is jealous of chris' robotic fingers (i swear he's not human) i still think the picture would've been WAY better if they still dressed the way they did back in the day... and i think its missing a few cans of beer haha :D

Some of these Big Four shows are a joke. In Switzerland and Greece Megadeth (and in Greece, Anthrax too) don't even play on the same stage as the other three, and at almost all of them Anthrax are on so early in the day they've probably left by the time Slayer and Metallica even turn up.

Not to mention at the ones they're playing, Rise Against are getting the same set length as Slayer, and more than bands like Alice In Chains, Stone Sour and Fear Factory.
