James Hetfield kicks Dave Mustaines dog, Mustaine gets kicked out of Metallica
Megadeth lead singer Dave Mustaine has finally come clean as to why he thinks he was kicked out of the band. This new information adds a new twist to the idea that he was just kicked out because of his drinking habits. But Mustaine alleges he was kicked out of the band because he brawled with Hetfield after he kicked his dog. It took 26 years to come out with this info, and what a strange story indeed as he discribed it with Norwegian rock blog Lydverket.
Mustaine apparently revealed that he was a pot dealer. He commented that when he went to play shows, people would break into his apartment and steal his weed. So Mustaine got two pet dogs. Apparently he brought one to reherasal one time and his dog put his paws up on the car of Metallica's
former bassist Ron's McGovney. When that occured, James came up to the dog and kicked it right in it's side.
Soon after that, Mustaine and Hetfield continuously argued. Mustaine hammered Hetfield in the face and the two started brawling. Mustaine comments, "I think that was the route of why I lost my job."
But things don't end there. Apparently Mustaine shot back at the Norwegian journalist who published the interview saying on the Megadeth forum according to Blabbermouth "These people are scum. Don't listen to their interviews, don't buy their shit magazine, don't go to their pathetic garbage website. And stand by, because as soon as I see that interviewer again, I am going to put him in a hospital. That is a promise. I will find him too."
It should be interesting to see how this all goes down.
