Remember not too long ago when Dave Mustaine seemed to be offending everyone on the planet with a slew of controversial comments? The legendary Megadeth frontman has been relatively quiet as of late, but we may have just been experiencing the eye of the storm, as Mustaine has once again claimed that President Obama was born in Kenya, Michelle Obama wore a dress that purposely made her look like a Black Widow spider and that the Obama administration has facilitated race wars, class wars, sexual wars and religious wars.
Not even one year after the release of 'TH1RT3EN,' Megadeth have already begun writing and recording new material for the band's fourteenth album. Megadeth have spoken briefly about kicking around new ideas, but frontman Dave Mustaine recently spoke about the details of the forthcoming disc.
As Megadeth geared up for their appearance at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, Tenn. this weekend (May 5), Dave Mustaine grabbed the microphone backstage to talk about the upcoming co-headlining tour with Rob Zombie and the 20th anniversary of the band’s classic disc ‘Countdown to Extinction.’
Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has been very outspoken on politics in recent weeks, which has put him at odds with some of his fans. Perhaps no one is more at odds with his beliefs than GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus, who said, 'Keep your f---ing mouth shut Dave Mustaine. Play your f---ing guitar."
Ex-Metallica Bassist Ron McGovney just took a verbal swing at his former bandmate Dave Mustaine, after the Megadeth guitarist completely cut McGovney out of Metallica's history during a recent interview. McGovney feels that Mustaine has continued to show him a lack of respect by “minimizing” his involvement during Metallica's early stages.
In a recent interview with the self-proclaimed libertarian Alex Jones on Infowars.com, Megadeth's Dave Mustaine opened up about some of his past controversial political comments in addition to a wide array of topics from his thoughts on playing with Satanic bands and how it felt to play with Metallica again.
