Dave Mustaine Is at it again!

Oh, Dave.

Dave Mustaine is crazy. I absolutely love the guy’s music. Hell, I was a part of many, many Megadeth > Metallica threads on message boards across the internet. I had no desire to learn guitar until I heard “Symphony of Destruction” for the first time. It’s safe to say that I keep up on all his doings, even when he’s being a moron. Dave recently spoke with Dave Ling of Classic Rock Magazine and, as usual, there are some fucking gems in there.

However, I’m only going to focus on the shit talking he did when it was mentioned he was chosen number one in Joel McIver’s “100 Greatest Metal Guitarists” book:

How did it feel to be No. 1 in Joel McIver’s recent book, “The 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists“?

It was especially sweet when I found out that Joel has written books on Metallica. I looked at my copy of the book — I wasn’t on the cover or the back. I figured I’d be somewhere like No. 69. So I thumbed through it; it’s a really comprehensive, good book. I got to No. 50 and I thought, “Am I in here?” I’d been told that I was, but not which position. So I got No. 16 and I saw Hetfield. I thought, “Wow,” because I respect James. I’m a better lead player than he is, but he’s one of the three best rhythm players in the world.

The other two being?

Malcolm Young [of AC/DC] and myself. Malcolm kept it basic but brought a whole new style of rhythm playing to the world. So I got to the Top 10… I still wasn’t in there. Every page I turned, I became more excited. I get to No. 5 and it’s Kirk [Hammett], and I thought, “Thank you, God.” At that point it didn’t matter [which position I was]. To be better than both of them [Hetfield and Hammett] meant so much — it’s been one of the pet peeves of my career and I’ve never known how to deal with it. I didn’t realize that it has had so much bearing upon my life. Then I got to No. 2 and it was John Petrucci [of Dream Theater] and I froze. I was No. 1. What made it better still is that the guy wrote: “This isn’t about Dave as a person because he’s been a cock” — [interjects with a bray of laughter] — “These four pages are about his guitar playing, which is the best. There are people who are better at one thing that Mustaine does, and others that are better than another, but no-one who’s as good at everything.” All I thought was… I win!

I haven’t read the book yet. Someone tell me where Dimebag is, please. Also, I just found out that Dave Mustaine will have his own radio show soon. I would give anything to be his co-host. Please, Jews who run radio, let me be his co-host.

Job For A Cowboy streaming Ruination on their Myspace page

 

ruination

 

Job For A Cowboy is streaming their new album Ruination on Myspace. Click here to listen. I have to admit, aside from this band’s sick album covers, I never really thought much of them. This new album is growing on me, though. Ruination will be out July 7th, on Metal Blade.

Video: Whitechapel – Eternal Refuge

A friend of mine once wrote up a hate-filled entry about this band. He had reason to. I’ll never understand the craze behind deathcore or whatever, but I don’t care either. Check out the video for “Eternal Refuge” then study how deep those lyrics are. Whitechapel will be on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival tour this summer supporting real bands such as: Slayer, Trivium, and Killswitch Engage.
