Feuds Among The Big 4 Are Dead

(Gibson) Members of The Big 4, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax, recently spoke to Spin.com about the contrast between the old days and today. Reports of feuds between the bands were common in the '90s, although the guys now think they were blown out of proportion.

"Listen, the first word that comes to mind is 'exaggerated.' Of course there was competition, of course we were all keeping close tabs on what everybody else was doing, of course when you're 25 years old you wanna be better than the next guy," Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich said. "But, through it, no matter what the press was writing about Metallica and Megadeth, me and [Dave Mustaine] would hang out. The things we shared were greater than the things we differed on... Underneath all the posturing, there was always a genuine respect and genuine admiration. Maybe a slight jealousy in some cases, which is fine. We're not talking about Oasis fistfights."

Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian said he wishes everyone could have grown up a little bit faster. "It's just too bad things couldn't have been squashed at a much earlier date," he said. "When you're younger duh you don't really have the tools to deal with certain things in your life." more on this story
