The Big Four love each other. Cue laugh track.

If you’re in the mood for a quick laugh, check out this excerpt I stole from Blabbermouth got from a recent Scott Ian interview. He’s explaining The Big Four tour.

This isn’t a manufactured thing put together by management or record companies or anything like that. This is put together because these four bands have all been around for so long. We’re still at the top of our game and we all really get along well, and really do love each other, as lame as that sounds for a bunch of metal dudes.

Read full interview here.

I’ll suspend my disbelief about the ‘manufactured’ part, I’ll pretend I didn’t read the ‘top of our game’ part, but I can’t take the ‘love’ part seriously.

All you have to do is do a quick search on Blabbermouth, and you’ll see how much these four bands love each other. Granted it was never Scott or anyone else from Anthrax doing the ‘loving’ in the press, but still, these bands tolerate each other at best, in my opinion.

I don’t want to make assumptions about people I haven’t met and things I don’t know about. I think it’s great that this Big Four thing is finally happening and I applaud them for ending their feuds, but this whole “ah, we’re all BFFs and are doing this cause we love each other” thing is pretty hard to take seriously. Especially after reading stuff like this.

But, what do I know? Last night I forgot to wipe after a messy shit and woke up with my underwear looking like one of those Rorschach inkblot tests.
