Report: Dave Mustaine explains why he turned down the Hall of Fame invitation…

Megadeth’s main man, Dave Mustaine, reveals the real reason why he turned down the Rock Hall of Fame invitation. While the major Megadeth tour is part of the reason why he turned it down, he drops the bombshell that the main reason why he declined ’cause he also wanted to be inducted since he used to be a member of Metallica. I think Dave is making a lot of sense. I agree with him.

I love Metallica and all but the dudes leaving Mustaine out of the induction is pretty lame. He never played on a Metallica record but Dave was one of the first guitarists of the band. That’s a good enough reason that Dave deserves to be inducted with the band too, but I guess that’s what happens when James and Lars’s egos gets in the way.

Report: Dave Mustaine to induct Metallica in the Hall of Fame? It’s looking very likely, band invites Mustaine to the Hall of Fame pre-ceremony party…

Oh my!!! It looks like Metallica and Dave Mustaine are burying the hatchet. Dave and Metallica are showing that they have no negative grudges against each other at all. Check this out!

James, Lars, Kirk and Rob invited Dave to attend the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, pre-ceremony party. Dave himself wrote on the Megadeth official website, thanking them and wishing them a congratulations on Metallica’s induction.

How fucking cool is this? Isn’t this awesome? 🙂 Nobody ever thought they would be nice to each other, but it looks like their long feud would come to an end. Finally. Life is too short to hold grudges.

Lets cross our fingers if Dave will be the one to induct Metallica into the Hall of Fame. Yeah!!!!!! Maybe even Metallica and Megadeth will one day go on tour together!! Metallica to Gigantour?

Report: Dave Mustaine is desperate for a #1 Megadeth album in Billboard Top 200…

Dave Mustaine admitted in the Megadeth official forums that the band never had a no. 1 record in the Billboard and his goal with the next record is that he wants it to be no. 1. After just releasing the latest Megadeth album “United Abominations” in 2007 (which that album kicks hella ass by the way), Megadeth is preparing to work in the studio on their next record while the band is just finishing their tour.

Dave is an amazing musician and an excellent songwriter. I’m glad he is preparing for another Megadeth album this soon, but do you think it’ll be no. 1?

I don’t know, I’ll have to wait to hear the album first and then I’ll judge. Their last record “United Abominations” was amazing.

Megadeth shouldn’t be obsessed with making a no. 1 record when they should concentrate on making great music for their fans. Just shows that Dave Mustaine still have a huge ego in him and he’s clearly competing with Metallica, big time. That’s the whole point of Dave forming Megadeth to begin with to compete with Metallica.

Report: Lars Ulrich interview…Metallica drummer speaks on cocaine use, Dave Mustaine, negative fan reviews on “St. Anger”, and more…

There is an interesting interview with Lars Ulrich at The Quietus website where Lars talks about a variety of topics. He speaks how Noel Gallagher from Oasis inspired Lars to get off cocaine.

He is still talking about Dave Mustaine of Megadeth to the media when Dave was fired from Metallica 24 years ago. Lars says that he and the rest of Metallica aren’t friends with Dave, Lars says he won’t telll Dave to back off and move on because he isn’t that kind of guy, Lars still has respect for Dave as a person and as a musician. Lars respects Dave’s work with Megadeth as Lars is a fan of Megadeth as well. Lars says that he is flattered that Dave Mustaine still loves Metallica to this day. Although they respect each other musically, they never got along personally.

I’ve always thought Megadeth was much better than Metallica anyways.

Will Dave and Metallica ever bury the hatchet and become friends in the future? It could be possible but I doubt it will ever happen. I’d love to one day see Metallica and Megadeth tour together but I don’t ever see Dave asking Metallica to play for Gigantour. They once shared the stage for Woodstock ’99 and that’s probably the only time you’ll see them share the stage.

I don’t think they should move on and stop thinking about the past. Mustaine is just trying to get answers on why Metallica kicked him out, and Metallica continues to refuse to admit the truth to the public. It’s no wonder Dave is still bothering Metallica because the band continues to act like assholes to him.

Cool Video: Me performing Megadeth’s “Sweating Bullets” cover acoustically…

Well well well, I never noticed this video been in youtube. Somebody else uploaded this in youtube without my knowledgement! How cool is that!

This seems to be a popular cover tune of mine. I plan to re-learn this song ’cause I haven’t played this tune in so long.

Now someone has the video that I don’t have anymore, I’ll put this video in my own account too so it can get more hits and views. I remember this Caffe Lena performance, it was a couple of years ago, it was a crowded and packed night as you can hear the loud crowd during the performance.

I know some out there has been wanting this video back online, and by popular demand, here it is, enjoy.
