Big 4 Recap and Jam Video

(Rock AAA) Metal's Big 4, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax, played their only Stateside appearance this year on Saturday in California. Reports indicate more than 50,000 fans rocked the event, which culminated in a jam by all four acts on the Diamond Head track, "Am I Evil?," just as the bands did last year at the Sofia, Bulgaria performance broadcast to theatres around the world and, eventually, released on DVD.

When bringing on the members of the other three bands for the "Am I Evil?" performance, Metallica's James Hetfield said, "Can you believe it? Thirty years, man. I don't know how many of you have been around that long, you know?! It doesn't matter; you're here right now to see the 'Big Four,' and we're getting this prepared for a big jam, alright? It's pretty important.

"We just wanna take the time to say 'thank you' to all of you metal fans out there who have supported all the bands not only the 'Big Four,' but the big however many out there. There's many, many other bands that have been around as long as us, and, unfortunately, broke up because of business or some other crap. There's a lot of great bands out there and we'd like to celebrate all of them, and especially the 'Big Four', getting out here and jamming, and just saying 'thank you' to the world of metal fans for just giving us your support, giving us your heart and giving us your passion, man, 'cause that's what it is for us."
