Will Diamond Head join The Big Four jam?

I actually wanted to go to Knebworth for Sonisphere, but couldn’t. Man, am I going to regret this…

Diamond Head (whose ‘Am I Evil’ song is usually played when the four bands jam) will play on the same stage as Anthrax, Slayer, Megadeth and Metallica. So will they join the jam at the end?

The video above with David Ellefson and Shawn Drover of Megadeth seems to hint towards that idea. It would be pretty epic indeed, and I don’t see why they wouldn’t.

I hope it will be pro shot so we don’t have to witness it via godawful cellphone footage.

UPDATE: Metallica.com confirms that Brian Tatler of Diamond Head joined the jam.

Speaking of Sonisphere, other musicians playing that festival were asked to pick their favorite Big Four band. Their quotes, after the jump.

Mine’s probably Slayer. Slayer’s just violent man. The old shit. We grew up with that man. I love those fucking records. It’s brutal.

– Max Cavalera, Cavalera Conspiracy

Oh that’s a hard question. If I have to pick one…oh, that’s a toughie. I really like them all. I like the early Anthrax, all of Megadeth, the early Slayer, the early Metallica. I like it all. Just to name one I would pick Anthrax, but only because you made me choose.

– Peter Iwers, In Flames

I grew listening to all four of these bands and I enjoyed all their early albums a lot and they helped shape me into the musician I am today. However, Slayer is the band that has consistently been playing extreme metal and have kept the spirit of THRASH alive! Enter to the realm of Satan!

– Michael Amott, Arch Enemy

“Metallica, are my favorite band of all time, but I’m really excited to see Anthrax too. They’ve always been one of my favorites, but haven’t really done as much as they could have in the last 10 years.

– Chris Jericho, Fozzy
