(Classic Rock) Dave Mustaine has responded to Kirk Hammett's comments about the Megadeth leader's dismissal from Metallica - saying his replacement is "almost 100% accurate" in his assessment of the situation.

Mustaine was thrown out of Lars Ulrich's band in 1983 and went on to form Megadeth, but spent nearly three decades expressing negative views about his former colleagues and their work.

Relations have thawed in recent years, with Mustaine having performed alongside Metallica, and Hammett - his replacement - playing along. Hammett said over the weekend that the other guitarist must have been "pissed off" over his treatment in the 1980s, and that he felt "a lot of empathy" for him, adding that he hoped their recent experiences had "healed some scars."

Now Mustaine has responded by tweeting: "I have tremendous respect for Kirk Hammett and I appreciated his take on this. He is almost 100% accurate… almost. I wish him the best."

Responding to a fan comment about his "frustration" he adds: "Old news. I wish him well. I know I'm well!" Read more here.
