As co-founder of Megadeth and longtime collaborator of Dave Mustaine, bassist David Ellefson has quite a life story to tell and that’s just what he’s offering up in his upcoming memoir ‘My Life With Deth.' Ellefson penned the autobiography over the last year with the assistance of writer Joel McIver and it's due out on Oct. 29 through Howard Books.
Dave Mustaine is beloved by metal fans for the classic albums and songs he has released as frontman of Megadeth over the years, as well as his incredible musicianship as a guitarist. However, the thrash titan has also experienced backlash for some controversial statements he's made over the years.
While six years between releases may be a long time to wait for a new Queens of the Stone Age disc, it certainly didn’t deter music fans from lining up to buy the album as soon as it came out. QOTSA’s sixth studio album ‘…Like Clockwork’ debuted in the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart this week, resulting in a huge milestone for the band as their first No. 1 disc.
Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has been vilified for his beliefs and actions for quite a while now. His take on controversial subjects has created a "what will he say next?" stigma which has followed the musician throughout many albums and tours. In Mustaine's latest WTF moment, the frontman kicked a fan out of Megadeth's June 5 show in Manchester, England, calling the fan a "c--t" and a "f--got" during a pause between songs.
Metal has its share of polarizing figures, and near the top of the list is Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine. His political and religious beliefs and controversial statements have made him a lightning rod. That has brought a lot of attention to Megadeth, who have been on a roll, releasing three excellent albums over the past few years. ‘Super Collider’ is their fourteenth album, released on their own imprint via Universal Music.
Megadeth are fourteen studio albums into their career and showing that they still have a few tricks up their sleeves. As the band approaches the release of their 'Super Collider' album, they've just debuted another song off the disc called 'The Blackest Crow' which has some instrumentation not usually heard in the band's music.
Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine was the guest on Full Metal Jackie’s radio show this past weekend. Mustaine spoke all about the band’s new disc, ‘Super Collider’ and the recording process of the album. He also expressed his enthusiasm for this year’s Gigantour and why spreading the word about new music is fulfilling to him.
