In the interview, King was quick to praise Mustaine's early guitar skills, pointing to an early performance when he was still with Metallica. "I was so intrigued by Mustaine," King said, "because he was just ripping on guitar and looking out that way somewhere. And I can't do that to this fuckin' day. So I was just blown away at his guitar playing."
Quite the compliment, right? But King was referencing another time. Now, he feels differently about Mustaine. "I don't know how anybody can be in Megadeth for more than a couple of hours, 'cause that guy's crazy," he said. "He was cooler back then. ... He writes riffs in a very different perspective than I ... Even after playing with him for a number of months, I'd still ... I wouldn't do it. It's just not my style."
