Why Slayer's Araya Didn't Join Big 4 Jam

(Rock News Desk) Slayer frontman Tom Araya refused to appear with Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax on the Big 4 live jam of Am I Evil because he doesn't think the song represents the spirit of the thrash giants.

The moment fans had been waiting to see since the movement began in the early 1980s took place at Sofia in Bulgaria last year and was broadcast to cinemas across the world.

"When they told me they wanted to do Am I Evil, to me it just didn't represent the Big 4. It didn't represent what we do as bands. We play heavier than that," Araya tells the LA Weekly. "Metallica's song The Four Horsemen was what I was hoping to hear. If they'd said, 'Hey, we want to do that,' I would have been on it. It's very representative of the bands. That's what we're doing the four horsemen are riding." more on this story
