Dave Mustaine Recalls His First Reaction to James Hetfield’s Guitar Skills: ‘I Didn’t Think He Knew How to Play’

Dave Mustaine praised his former Metallica bandmate James Hetfield’s guitar playing, admitting how he didn’t think Papa Het was such a capable guitarist at the time.

The current Megadeth mastermind has shared a complicated history with Metallica that caused intense emotion to flow both ways back in the day, but it’s inevitable that the fledgling musicians did sow the seeds of something much greater together. Given that they were all youngsters who hardly knew which way was up, Dave tells Metal Hammer in a new interview how he was still playing at Lars’ level when the story of Metallica began — meaning that he was still finding his way around his chosen instrument:

“When I was in Metallica, I was kind of playing at Lars’s level, because Lars was still learning to play drums back then.”
