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?
“MUST. BE. FASTER. THAN. KIRK!!!”

“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 Megadeth & Motörhead 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.”
Fucking bollocks. Knew I should have worn a condom.
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!

I’m seeing Megadeth again this summer. Not much else to say, really. I just am.
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
As we all know, Dave joined Metallica on stage at their 30th anniversary shows… Dave seems very happy about that, since he keeps saying how great it was. Which is cool, considering the way he talked about Metallica a few years ago…
“I think you can see from the way the guys lit up that it was mutually beneficial for everybody. We all expected something magical to happen, and it did. We were playing stuff off the first record that I’d written in my teenage years. It was a blast.”

Aww, Dave is in love. <3
More than a dozen new bands have been added to the Download 2012 line up, and if you had any doubts about going or not, one (or more) of these will probably help you make your mind up:
- Rise Against
- Steel Panther
- Black Label Society
- Kyuss Lives!
- Five Finger Death Punch
- As I Lay Dying
- Billy Talent
- Fear Factory
- and more!
Billy Talent?!? OMG I’M SO THERE!!!1!1 No, but seriously, that’s some nice lineup, joining the already awesome lineup of Metallica, Black Sabbath, and most importantly – The Prodigy, plus a shitload of more good to great bands.
Music videos are almost a thing of the past. Do you remember the days when labels would invest millions into a single music video? Of course you don’t, cause that was back in the early 20s.
So what is there to see when it comes to Megadeth‘s video? I don’t know cause I’ll be honest, I haven’t watched that clip. But maybe you will, so enjoy.
…and they’re jamming like there’s no tomorrow. Former Megadeth guitar player Jeff Young met up with band’s former bass player James LoMenzo, also joining them was drummer Jeff Bowders. This is unrelated to Young’s new project, Souls on 11, and it’s more of a “in the moment” type of thing. You get what I’m saying? They’re sending their chill vibes all over the place.
You can check the video above and for more of “young vibes” check out Soul on 11‘s ReverbNation page.
I wanted to end my “Jaymz/paparazzi” post with a joke, but I simply forgot to write it. So I’ll write it here… Ahem:
Jaymz, you don’t like paparazzi? Well if you want anonymity, just join Megadeth. No one will ever take your photograph!
Come on, that was good… Someone reddit/4chan/9gag it!!!11
Rhythm guitar. Vocals. Lead guitar. Politics. Is there anything Dave can’t do?
Apparently our man Dave has advice for the next president, and whoever that is, he’d better listen up. Cause this is a guy who founded two of the best metal bands of all time, so he knows his shit when it comes to metal. And we all know metal rules so ipso facto Dave can rule the world.
So here’s some of the things Dave said. I must warn you, the interview is unintentionally hilarious and a very good read.
If you’re a Dave fan, skip this article, because the interviewer is being sarcastic all the time and Dave doesn’t seem to realize it.
”Dave: All I know is, if my wife walked in there and some transgender dude in a dress walked out, I would beat his ass.
Interviewer: Her ass.
Interviewer: You mean her ass.
Dave: The dude in the dress?“
Haha, wow… Probably the best Dave interview in a while. It gets better, Dave mentions his hexes again.
“They did [work]. And that’s why I don’t do hexes anymore. And it’s why I don’t do Megadeth songs like “The Conjuring” anymore. The lyrics are basically just a list of instructions from some of the hexes I’ve done.”
The interviewer is obviously pulling his leg at this point, but Dave is none the wiser…
“Interviewer: I just Googled the lyrics to “The Conjuring,” and I guess you’re right, it is like a recipe for a hex. I apparently need a candle and a piece of parchment and an eyelash from a black cat and the straw of a broom. This is all accurate?
Dave: It is, yeah.
Interviewer: Where do you even go to find the eyelash from a black cat? Amazon, maybe?
Dave: I have no clue. I’m not saying everybody would listen to that song and decide to try doing a hex. Maybe out of 100 people, 99 will think it’s stupid, or 99 will think it’s cool but would never do it. But there’s always that one. You know what I mean? I don’t want to be responsible for misleading anyone. It’s hard enough to survive in this world without getting bad ideas from a metal song.”

BEST. INTERVIEW. EVER.
Dave, seriously. This guy was jabbing you subliminally and all you did was fall right into his trap. I can’t blame anyone for his own beliefs, it’s your right to believe in God/Santa/hexes, but keep some of that stuff to yourself, man. Otherwise people will just make fun of you.
