Dave Mustaine has done rather well for himself. I don't know if I could have been so bummed at the beginning of my career and still created the body of work and successful career he has. 14 albums in with over 50 million sold Megadeth have proved their worth.
I have met Dave a couple of times and I will say he is an interesting cat, especially when he's not drinking. I give him credit. Figuring he left Metallica who are arguably the biggest metal band of all time, and starting out on his own only to create another band that has made, in my humble opinion, as much of a contribution to the genre which is evidenced by the Big Four Tour.
On December 3rd Megadeth hit the Paramount in Huntington with Non Point and Fear Factory. While you’re waiting for that show check out the interview and click the Win Stuff tab to enter for free tickets.
