> Dave Mustaine was recently interviewed by the Asbury Park Press and when asked about his feelings on METALLICA here is what he had to say:
On whether he's forgiven METALLICA, from which he was fired in 1983:
"A long time ago. It's just like anything in life. We ebb and flow and we grow, and sometimes we regress. I think it's really cheap journalism when people bring up the feud to try and goad me into saying something."
Are you accusing us of cheap journalism, Dave?
"No, no, no. You didn't say it like a punk, so it's OK. Your question is really relevant. I find it's hardest to forgive the people who you love the most, or on the flip-side, have hurt you the most."
