…but before he does he’s been profiling the Big Four ahead of Friday’s historic main stage shindig.
And today Dave Mustaine’s Megadeth are under scrutiny – with a look at the biggest of them all, Metallica, tomorrow!
WHEN: Friday 8th July (5:15PM)
WHERE: Apollo Stage
YOU KNOW THEM BECAUSE: Of their technical edge, warlike imagery and lyrical and musical driving force Dave Mustaine.
GUARANTEED THRILL: Holy Wars…The Punishment Due – a bastion of heavy metal inspired by the infamous riot Mustaine was said to have caused in Ireland when he made a brief speech on Irish independence. The song was written at Nottingham’s Rock City venue!
TOILET BREAK: Seven, from the dissapointing Risk record (1999).
LOOK OUT FOR: A Mustaine speech in the heat of the Big Four competition regarding some of his former band mates? Expect a solid performance at least.
ESSENTIAL ALBUM: Rust In Peace
OUT NOW: Endgame (2009)
LIKE MEGADETH? YOU MAY ENJOY: The other obvious lot, Diamond Head and who knows, if you’re a fan of Mustaine’s Anarchy In The UK tune, then you may well enjoy some Bad Religion (3:00PM, Saturday).
