From Rockline Radio.com:
There’s a joke that’s been around for years and one could easily apply it to Megadeth main man Dave Mustaine. It goes something like this, “Few would argue that Dave Mustaine is outspoken”. The reply is, “Oh yeah, by whom?” We love that about Dave, he’s a no pretense, straight shooting, in-your-face- kinda guy and while he might tick off some people now and then, we find it refreshing to know where you stand with someone. It translates to his music too. Megadeth is upfront, political, engaging, confrontational and thought provoking. Take the latest single, “The Right To Go Insane”, from the newest album, “Endgame”. It’s about that former military dude in San Diego, Shawn Timothy Nelson, who flipped out a few years ago, stole an M-60 Patton military tank from the US National Guard Armory and went on a property damaging, hell-bent rampage that ended in the worst possible way, lodged on a concrete median with his life taken without reservation or hesitation. While it’s hard to justify such actions (from both sides), a quick inventory of Nelson’s life explained much. Sometimes an event will cause a person to snap, but with the overworked and underappreciated Shaun Nelson his whole life disintegrated with both of his parents dying, his house being foreclosed upon and as if that weren’t enough his wife left him too. In the video for the song Mustaine portrays the maniacal Nelson. David Ellefson, Megadeth’s longtime bassist, returns to the fold for his first video appearance with the band since 2001. New to the band is Chris Broderick whom Mustaine terms the greatest guitarist the band has ever had, praise of the highest order from a man who has heard a player or two in his time.
Megadeth.com and mySpace.com/Megadeth are user friendly and informative sites for you to visit. ROCKLINE is where you can place a free call and speak with Dave….and from what we understand David might join us as well. A quick visit to the website will let you know about the special event to take place on June 22 at select movie theaters as “The Big Four”, Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax will perform on one stage together. This is a onetime event, never to be repeated and you can learn more at TheBigFourLive.com
Even though “Endgame” came out in 2009 this is our first chance to catch up with Megadeth as they spend so much time on the road, much of it overseas and there have been many changes within the band and personally as well. It’s time to catch up again as we welcome Megadeth back to ROCKLINE!
