Dulu masa mula-mula MEGADETH bermula, mereka tiada gitaris, maka Kerry King menjadi gitaris untuk MEGADETH. Jangka masa beliau bersama dengan MEGADETH ialah 5 kali persembahan live. Selepas itu, Kerry King keluar atas alasan - terlampau banyak masa digunakan kerana beliau masih bersama dengan SLAYER.
Jadi. baru-baru ini Kerry King sekali lagi naik atas pentas bersama MEGADETH, selepas 26 tahun (21/10/2010)!
Sudah tentu ia menjadi sesuatu yang happening! Terutama kepada peminat kedua-dua band tersebut.
Komen Ellefson (bassist MEGADETH): "Some may not know that Kerry was the first guitar player to ever play live with us on our maiden voyage shows in San Francisco back in early 1984. True to form, Kerry proved his god-like metal status and nailed it last [Thursday] night in front of a packed house of thrashers at the Gibson Amphitheater! It was powerful for us all to be 'thrashing 'till MEGADETH' again on an early classic song after all these years."
Dan komen Kerry King sendiri: "I did it because I admired Mustaine — I'd seen him play with METALLICA. He'd be up there drunk off his ass, just ripping, not even looking at his fingers. Me and Jeff didn't know how to do that yet. [laughs] When he got kicked out and was sniffing around for a guitarist, I figured I'd do it because I thought I would learn something. The other guys in SLAYER were probably unhappy, but we weren't really known back then, and the way I looked at it was that if people saw me playing in Dave's band, it'd be more publicity for SLAYER. Now you look back and you think 'supergroup,' but back then, absolutely not. I played their first five shows, and then I was like, 'Man, this is taking too much of my time.' I can't speak for Dave, but I don't think he would've been unhappy if I stuck around." SUMBER
