Maybe this will get back to him and he'll get the message.

That's awesome. I'm still going to see Megadeth and Slayer though.

People keep asking him about it, and really, guy was dicked over.

Still, he should appreciate that it fueled him all these years in Megadeth. Revenge is a great motivator, and though Megadeth doesn't have the album sales that Metallica has, Dave does have a lot more credibility in metal than his former bandmates do.

You'd think he'd be comfortable with the career he has had. Incredibly respectable. Put out classic material. I'm sure hes been comfortable financially from his work. I'd be pumped to not be in a band that is the epitome of rock star assholes.

EDIT: Although, Mustaine is a rock star asshole in his own right.

Dave does have a reputaion of being difficult to get along with (to say the least).

All I know is that on my own smaller scale, I've been unceremoniously booted from bands and used that anger to fuel my desire to smash them into the ground. It's amazing how long that kind of resentment can stay with you. In 1997 I was kicked out of a band I was in, local band from CT. Didn't even go anywhere. But what got me was, everyone in the band knew they were kicking me out a week before they actually did. My cousin and best friend at the time, who played bass, didn't even let me know- and to top it off, a lot of my other friends knew and didn't tell me. Not one of them gave me the heads up. The last show we played was the day before I got kicked out, we played to 500 people and it was a great show- and to top it off for me, that was the first time I saw my father since I was 12 (I was 24 when we played this show). Next day, they said they were breaking the band up. They dropped off my drums. I was shocked, because we had just played an incredible gig. So, after a couple hours I went to their place to try and get them to reconsider. They weren't home. That's when I realized I had been fucked over and lied to. I went to our old practice space and there they were with a new drummer.

Even though I've put the anger about that behind me, part of that bitterness, that indignant sense of pure betrayal, that doesn't ever go away. Even if they were right and I was an asshole or whatever, the way they did it, the fact that everyone knew but me, even people outside the band, I had never felt so completely dicked over in my life, and it really fueled me to be a better musician, to be in a better band.

From what we know about Dave's firing, he was a screaming drunk and coke addict who caused a ruckus everywhere he went, and maybe at the time, AA wouldn't have helped him, but the fact that they just gave him a bus ticket and cut their losses, I could see where he would feel completely fucked on that deal. And then, to have to live in Metallica's shadow for years, trying to make it as 'the guy who got booted from Metallica' instead of being recognized for his own talent, that's gotta suck donkey balls too. People bringing it up in every interview, making him re-live it over and over every time... and he's the one who has to get over it?

It's part of metal history now anyway, this legend will never go away. It's almost as epic as Ozzy getting fired from Sabbath and going on to have an incredible solo career- only difference is, Ozzy in the 80's outdid Sabbath in the 80's.

Totally. And the media absolutely has a hand in not letting him ever fully move on from that incident.

And maybe I'm way off, and it doesn't have anything to do with the fact that Metallica are the biggest metal (or hard rock, as they have become) band ever, but just that sense of betrayal and hurt is what really has irked him the past 26 years. Shit that happened when he was a wild kid in a band with a bunch of other wild kids.

I never really put a lot of thought into the whole dave/metallica thing. to be honest, I didnt really jam out on the first albums of either band so knowing that dave played for them was really just trivial knowledge. personally, I was more intrigued by kirk playing in exodus and recording the bonded by blood album because that fucking album was my jam for a long time. I agree with posters here who think that it is really the media more than anything else that continues to keep dave's involvment in metallica in the spotlight, and because of that he is always reminded and has a hard time dealing. As a musician and the front man of megadeth tho, he has nothing at all to be ashamed about. he has definitely left his mark on heavy music, and there are plenty of albums that he has put out that I still thoroughly enjoy.
