Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine was asked about possibly replacing Dimebag Darrell in a Pantera reunion in a recent Twitter Q&A with fans. Mustaine suggest Grim Reaper’s Nick Bowcott instead of himself.
“Im the wrong guy for that. Check out Nick Bowcott from Grim Reaper. He is a Dimebag clone. Excellent guitarist!!!!”
He also revealed that Megadeth won’t do another full tour until 2019, and that he doesn’t want a Metallica issue featuring himself because ‘I ain’t giving my songwriting credit to Lars for songs I wrote in Panic.’ He went at it with a troll hater as well, suggesting he get off Twitter.
He also suggested a new Big 4 due to Metallica’s lack of interest in more shows and Slayer’s impending retirement.
“Maybe you were sleeping when everyone else on the planet heard that @slayer is retiring, and @metallica doesn’t want to do it.”
“Megadeth, Anthrax, Exodus, Testament! The new Big 4.”
He later wrote, “Ask them. All kidding aside, all I know is when @slayer finally retires, the real Big 4 is over.”
