Tornado of Solos

Haven’t done this in a while. Here’s one of my favorite Megadeth tracks with arguably one of the best guitar solos out there. I miss Marty Friedman, but I gotta say Chris Broderick sure knows his shit.


Dave Mustaine was fueled by hatred

If you ever wondered what made Dave Mustaine so creative during Megadeth‘s first years, wonder no more. Chris Poland comes with the answer. Hint: It’s very predictable.

You really have to give Dave credit. Dave wrote a lot of the material. It came from his… He was fueled by hate for Metallica, so that added that extra angst to what we were doing. It was perfect timing and like you said, the chemistry was right.

This is why I’ve always said Dave being kicked out of Metallica was the best thing to ever happen to us. We got two great bands out of it. Can you imagine Dave practicing guitar?


More from the same interview here.


Looks like I may be a father…

“Craigslist can be whatever you want it to be. You can use it to find a flat, secure a new job, sell your car…and now, it seems, search for the father of your unborn child after a brief encounter at a rock concert.

As observed by Fuse, an American woman has turned to the online classifieds site  to track down a man who knocked her up at a MegadethMotörhead concert in Chicago in February. The woman in question describes herself as: “Blue hair, silver tube top, fishnets, Knee high black biker boots,” whilst the dude is sporting a similar look: “Red mohawk, black pentagram gauges, viper piercings.”

Megazombie Tour

Rob Zombie and Dave Mustaine have one thing in common. They’re both involved in unintentionally hilarious movies. Dave was in Some Kind of Monster, Rob directed a few ‘horror’ films.

But now the guys have two things in common: They’re touring together!

These are the dates:

May 11 – Holmdel, NJ @ PNC Bank Arts Center
May 12 – Scranton, PA @ Toyota Pavilion
May 16 – Pittsburgh, PA @ Stage AE
May 18 – Grand Rapids, MI @ The Deltaplex
May 20 – Columbus, OH @ Rock On The Range
May 22 – La Crosse, WI @ La Crosse Center
May 24 – Sioux City, IA @ Tyson Center
May 25 – Wichita, KS @ Hartman Arena
May 26 – Pryor, OK @ Rocklahoma

I’m seeing Megadeth again this summer. Not much else to say, really. I just am.


Foo Fighters win the right to be featured on this website

Foo Fighters

Because they won a “metal” Grammy. A lot of people got super pissed off about this, because the category they won is called hard rock / metal.

To explain: Dear metalheads, hard rock / metal means hard rock OR metal. Not hard rock and metal.

Either way, blame the people at Grammy’s who lumped bands like Dream Theater, Mastodon, Megadeth with Sum 41 and Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl did rock out a Slayer shirt (as seen above) so that makes it completely okay, right?

The thing I only care about is finding out if Skrillex won the best singer Grammy <3
