Anthrax's Scott Ian onstage and airborne at a summer 2010 Sonisphere show.

Jackson fans should be sure to pick up the October 2010 issue of Guitar World magazine, wherein—beginning on page 34, to be precise—they will find a feature article on the “the most exciting metal event of the decade,” the Big Four tour.

That’s Big Four as in Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax, all of whom convened over summer 2010 for a historic series of Sonisphere concerts in Europe at which all four seminal metal bands shared the stage for the first time.

We won’t spoil the details by reprinting them here; you’ll just have to pick up GW and see for yourself. But by all means, do look for the shot of Scott Ian brandishing his Jackson as Lars Ulrich makes a face at him. Priceless.
