Over on YouTube, rare footage has been uploaded that features a 1983 interview with Metallica; what makes this even more interesting is that Dave Mustaine is present as a member of the band. (This footage was originally found by our friends over at Louder).
It is surreal to see all the guys together – James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Dave Mustaine, and the late Cliff Burton. It is also wild to see how young they look! It is a brief but fun interview, with the Metallica members talking about how long they have been together, who their favorite artists are, and more.
You can check out this interview for yourself via the video player below. It would be cool to see Metallica team up with Dave Mustaine again; we know that Dave has been hoping to collaborate with James Hetfield, so hey, who knows right?
Wildly enough, at one point in time, both Mustaine and Hetfield were actually working on a secret project together! However, said project ended up falling apart.
