Dave Mustaine of Megadeth is now battling throat cancer, hope he gets speedy recovery…

Dave Mustaine announced on his instagram page that he is now battling throat cancer. This really sucks ’cause Dave is one of my favorite musicians, guitarist and singer of all time. I freakin’ love Megadeth and they’re one of my favorite bands.

Some of you may ask is throat cancer curable? Is throat cancer a death sentence? No… throat cancer is not a death sentence and it can be curable. Doing a little reading on throat cancer; however, it can be curable only if the malignant cells doesn’t spread beyond the neck and the head of the body. If the bad cells spreads at other parts of the body then your life could be over pretty soon.

I’m sure Dave’s throat cancer will have a negative affect on Dave’s singing so I’m sure he won’t be able to sing for a little while which is why they had to cancel most Megadeth shows.

Anyway, the band are at work in the studio for their 16th album and from what I’m seeing, I don’t think Dave recorded vocals for the new album yet but I’m sure he will record the vocals if his doctors give him the permission. I’m sure they’ll finish the new album this year.

Like everyone else, I’m hoping Dave fights this cancer hard and gets a speedy recovery. This should be easily cured, hopefully.

I am looking forward to the new album. I love Megadeth… have loved them for a very long time and I’m trying to collect all of their albums too.

Best wishes go out to Dave. He’s got this!

Is Dave Mustaine really a dick? I don’t think he is…

A lot of people like to label Dave Mustaine as a dick, a douche or an egomaniac but is he really any of those things? The way I see him, no. To me, he always seemed like a cool, humble and down to earth guy. When you want to become a musician, of course you’re gonna get haters. That’s just the way it is.

Dave himself explains his theory on why people hate him but the truth haters are gonna hate. Period.

I don’t think Dave is a dick at all. If you want proof of that look at his new album with Megadeth, “Dystopia”… that was a crowd funded album and as one of the prizes for donating the album, he invited fans in the studio to witness the recording of the album which was cool of him really. Plus, Dave is great with his fans. Dave replies to his fans on twitter and he’s willing to take photos/sign autographs with them. He buried the hatchet with Metallica so that makes him a good guy enough and people still want to hate Dave.

I understand where Dave is coming from ’cause I get a lot of haters myself. It used to bother me why people get so obsessed of treating me in a negative direction but it don’t bother me anymore. I got so used to it that I don’t care what people think of me anymore. Yeah, there are a lot of haters and bullies who do nothing but follow everything I do on the internet and attack me all day but fuck ’em, ya know? There are just losers with no lives anyways. They just sit there and watch me 24/7 on my blog and social networking. They enjoy messing with me ’cause they have nothing better to do and that includes a few blog commenters which shall be nameless at this time.

Why do musicians get so many haters? I think it’s jealousy for the most part, absolutely ’cause if you are a musician there are gonna be too many people who want to be like you. They realize that you have what they don’t have and it’s pissing them off, really. You’ve got a lot of talent and unfortunately, it’s going to anger some for sure. Instead of them being proud and happy for you, they have to be all negative. All bands and music artists are gonna get their share of haters & critics. It doesn’t matter how good of a person they are, they are gonna get haters & critics. Haters & critics has become quite a problem in music but you have to learn to stay above ’em. Learn to take all the hate as a “compliment” ’cause like they all say bad publicity is good publicity. Haters can help make you even more popular.

Megadeth’s new album “Dystopia” is really amazing though. Listened to it a couple of times and it’s their best since “Rust In Peace”.

More on Megadeth…

Well I just finished listening to the rest of Megadeth’s discography of albums. My opinion still stands on those two albums “Risk” and “Super Collider”… they weren’t very good albums. I think the reason “Risk” wasn’t very good is ’cause Dave decided to do some experimenting to techno & electronic music along with metal which doesn’t work so I’m actually with most Megadeth fans that “Risk” wasn’t a good album… plus the songwriting was pretty weak. The album was too “pop” and it didn’t sound metal enough. As for why “Super Collider” their latest record wasn’t good is ’cause it sounded more like a hard rock album then metal and Dave’s singing on it was pretty weak. Don’t get me wrong, though, Chris Broderick was an insane and talented as hell guitarist for sure… I just wished the songwriting could have been better.

Hopefully Dave Mustaine won’t let us down again for the next Megadeth album with their new guitarist, Kiko Loureiro. Hopefully they go back to the thrashy and heavy Megadeth we all want. See? Megadeth goes different directions too much like Metallica. From what I heard of the previews that Dave have been showing us during the behind the scene stuff of their next album, their next album sounds like it might be thrashy and heavy.

I love Megadeth… been a longtime fan. I never got to see Megadeth live in concert yet but would love to someday, though. They are one phenomenal band.

Dave Mustaine admits punching James Hetfield in the mouth was a mistake…

I’m glad to see Dave Mustaine and James Hetfield finally getting along after all these years. Ya know, Dave Mustaine could have been a longtime member of Metallica if Dave didn’t mess up and we wouldn’t have gotten Megadeth. I’m a huge fan of both bands. Megadeth and Metallica are both amazing bands. Hopefully their relationship together stays this way. No more feuds. No more drama.

Now that Megadeth and Metallica have finally played concerts together, hopefully Dave and James would do some kind of collaboration in the studio together. That’s long overdue too. I would like a super group with Megadeth and Metallica members… wouldn’t it be awesome to see them do an album together? If Metallica can collaborate with Lou Reed, then why not do an album with Dave Mustaine??? Bring it on, boys! We’re waiting for it!

Dave Mustaine really loves Metallica, you can tell that he does.

Cool Video: Dave Mustaine was only quoting what Larry Pratt said at the Singapore concert…

Well that was fast! Dave Mustaine called up the Alex Jones show to clarify what he said at the Megadeth, Singapore concert. Dave said he was only quoting what Larry Pratt said when he blamed Obama on the shootings. Larry Pratt did an interview with Alex Jones way before Dave Mustaine said it, and Larry said pretty much the same thing.

I still support Megadeth ’cause I am a fan of their music. I dig their stuff, plus Dave is an excellent songwriter and guitar player. Larry Pratt was the first one to blame Obama and the government for shootings, how come nobody’s hating on him? Alex is right on the money!

Dave Mustaine has always been politically outspoken, even with Megadeth songs…

The public backlash for Dave Mustaine has gotten much worse, for this metal legend. Angry fans are bashing him in his official facebook page and there are fans trashing him on the Megadeth page. Of course, there are those obsessive fan boys that still support him, no matter what. I still support Dave and Megadeth. He says a lot of stuff I agree with, and sometimes he says stuff that makes me want to scratch my head. He maybe a weird guy when it comes to political discussions and debates, but the man can speak what he wants. Pretty much most of Megadeth’s entire catalog of songs are mostly political and topical stuff. Like the “Peace Sells” album for starters.

Why be offended at Dave now when you should have been offended at him years ago? As I said, if you do a google research, you would find things he said that were much worse than blaming Obama on the gun shootings. Check this out, here. Just an example.

Politics discussion have always been controversial. Whenever someone says something that other people disagree with, that makes him an evil asshole. It’s not easy discussing politics everywhere you go. It seems like you have to watch what you say at all times. If people disagree with it, you get yelled at. I have trouble talking politics myself. When my opinion is different than others, that’s when I get people going in facebook. I’m all for “traditional” marriage myself, I don’t agree with gay marriage, and it’s hard having an opinion on that.

Most politicians and music activists like to talk politics in a brutally honest way, but Mustaine likes his discussions in a no holds barred type of way. He’s not afraid to say stuff that’s on his mind. I agree that some of the stuff he says, can be whacky, but you gotta respect the 1st amendment. Dave doesn’t seem like a bad dude, he seems friendly. I think people need to relax over him and not take him too seriously. He likes to speak his mind on politics like a lot of people. He’s anti Obama like a lot of musicians out there seem to be.

Another thing, I wouldn’t compare Mustaine to Ted Nugent. Totally unfair.

I’m sure we’ll get a statement from Dave soon, hopefully this weekend. Maybe he’ll apologize? I don’t think so ’cause he never seemed apologetic at all with his statements from the past. Maybe people just misunderstood his comments. Maybe he meant Obama wasn’t really behind the shootings but he manipulated it to happen somehow, with money and power. Something like that, ya know?

I just don’t think Dave deserves this backlash. Looking forward to his response soon though, you know you’re going to hear from him soon. He might post something on his twitter or facebook. I’ll keep an eye on them.

Thought: Dave Mustaine maybe a little out of line about Obama, but he had the right to say it…

I am anti-Obama myself, but I wouldn’t blame him for “Operation: Fast and Furious”, the Aurora and Sikh Temple shootings. While Dave Mustaine, front man of Megadeth maybe a little out of line, but he did have the right to say it if he wanted to.

While performing at a show in Singapore, a fan threw a shoe at Mustaine on stage, and Dave joked around with the crowd for a little after. Later on, he went on talking politics like usual and said a controversial comment that caused a firestorm on the internet today. Dave is no stranger to controversial political comments, as the guy had said much worse stuff than this in the past before.

I disagree with Dave for blaming Obama, but he is entitled to his own views.

I mean, if I remember correctly, most everyone blamed President W. Bush for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Everyone thought blaming Bush was okay. Everyone came to an agreement that 9/11 was Bush’s fault. Where’s the backlash in that? Think about it, right? Yet, everyone thinks what Dave said was offensive, calling him a delusional whack job and all that stuff. All these shootings are politics related in some way. So someone out there will blame Obama for these shootings. If Dave didn’t said anything, then who would? Every time something tragic and awful happens like a terrorist attack or a shooting rampage somewhere, someone is going to come out and blame a politician, sooner or later. It happens.

So to those who think that what Dave said was offensive, stop being a hypocrite. Again, I’m not agreeing with Dave. I think he’s wrong, and not defending him, I’m only defending Freedom of Speech like I usually do.
