Dave Mustaine has reignited the simmering feud between him and Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich.

In an interview with Rock Hard, Mustaine claimed that the Metallica drummer is running scared of sharing a bill with Megadeth when asked about the chances of more Big Four shows.

“It’s not about the Big Four,” said Mustaine. “I believe Lars is afraid to play with Megadeth.”

Dave Mustaine Says Lars Ulrich is Afraid to Play with Megadeth

This latest spat comes after Mustaine, who spent two years in Metallica before being fired in 1983, refused to give permission for his former band to release an expanded version of their 1982 demo No Life ’Til Leather.

“I won’t give them my rights, so I will not be part of it,” Mustaine said. “I wrote all of Mechanix and Jump In The Fire and I won’t give anything to Lars Ulrich. He can give it up. With Phantom Lord I wrote all the music and James Hetfield did all the lyrics – 50/50. If James wants to give his share to Lars because he’s scared of him, that’s up to him. I’m not afraid of Lars Ulrich and I won’t give him my share.”

Mustaine went on to claim that James Hetfield is afraid of Ulrich.

“If James wants to give his share to Lars because he’s afraid of him, that’s OK. I’m not afraid of him. I’m not giving anything to Lars Ulrich. Everyone knows they got the rights in the past. But the past is past. But I can’t willingly come to an agreement with these people and give Lars credit for something that he not only didn’t do – but was also incapable of doing. He couldn’t write songs so good then.”
