Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine says he wants to form a Megadeth/Metallica supergroup. He told Texas radio station 97.1 The Eagle Rocks, “I’ve talked to Lars [Ulrich] and James [Hetfield] about me and David [Ellefson, Megadeth bassist] doing a supergroup record with Lars and James.

"Well, James said ‘no,’ but it’s still kind of out there in the air,” he said. “I’m gonna keep hammering on him. It’s on my bucket list.”

:lol:

But seriously, whats so super about being in a band with James and Lars besides $$$$

I mean, James can't sing for shit any more and Lars is horribal on drums now. I'd rather the super group be Mustaine, Lombardo (did I spell right?), Belladona, Kirk, and for bass well that's a toss up between any of the Big 4 bassists.

I'd like to hear what they'd come up with in this day and age.... but doesn't Mustaine already have a supergroup in the works with Dan Spitz?

I don't see this ever happening. Didn't James get all on Jason Newstead's ass years ago for him doing Echobrain? For that reason alone I don't see this ever seeing the light of day. I wouldn't put it passed them to do some kind of one off shows or something like that but an actual album when Metallica tours atleast for 2-3 years per album and then spend 2-4 years between albums that math adds up to no chance of this happening.

Mustaine needs to stop talking about what he wants to cross off his bucket list and give us dates for the Peace Sells tour:mad:

I've always wanted a Big 4 supergroup. Take one guy from each band, and call them The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse. I think it should look something like this...

Drums - Dave Lombardo
Bass - Dave Ellefson
Rhythm guitar - Scott Ian
Lead guitar/vocals - James Hetfield

The thing with Jason certainly did happen, but James has allowed himself to participate in side projects from time to time. It was a jealousy thing with Jason, everyone in Metallica is free to do what they want. That said, I can't see this "super" group happening, and even if it did, it's about 25 years too late.

But wasn't Jason a bit of a dick? I mean, he had "teh coolah" background vocals, but it's also a bit his fault that he was always called "newkid".

Anyway, I don't see this happen. Metallica has one album with Lou Reed coming out and are working on one of their own.

Mustaine should instead focus himself on his boring setlists.

James probably said no because there would be even more unwanted comparisons between Metallica and Megadeth. Mustaine and Ellefson would make James and Lars look bad on stage.

No, both bands are doing fine on their own now.

How was Jason a dick? I guess it was his fault that he was called Newkid because he agreed to join the band as THEIR NEWEST MEMBER! From what I've heard & read, the rest of the guys never really let Jason 'in'.

That's right. Everyone was a dick to him to cope with Cliff's death or some bullshit like that, which is supposedly why there's no bass on Justice. I think they lightened up that after a few years, even though they never really let him contribute musically.

I'm pretty sure it was also his own fault. :)

From everything I've ever seen and read it's seemed unanimous that the band was more of a dick to Jason. Maybe they just had a hard time still trying to process Cliff's death, it's not like they really had much time between his death and getting Jason. That w/ their alcoholism might have been a contributor I'm guessing. I've never once heard it was Jason who brought it on himself.
