Dave Mustaine: 'New Generation Doesn't Want to Experience Emotions'
Megadeth mastermind Dave Mustaine recently discussed drugs among youth, expressing concern about younger generations' unwillingness to experience genuine emotions. "When I was growing up, pot was like the real big thing among young guys," Mustaine told RGJ. "I smoked when I was 13. Now, you see lots of young kids doing crack and ecstasy and crystal meth. It's so sad. And while I don’t deny anybody the right to have an out-of-body experience, music can do that for you. Love can do that for you." Dave elaborated further, "My concern is we have a new generation of people who really don't want to experience any emotions, whether it's themselves or the people around them. Instead of learning to communicate and share their lives and emotions with other people, we're just putting them on psycho-pharmaceutical stuff just to shut them up. Like 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' kind of stuff." During the rest of the chat, Mustaine focused on his Christianity, saying, "It's really weird. I was forced to go to AA. And I hated it. But I had come to a point where I knew that the jig was up. The thing was, God had entered my life and he sent me to AA. Then after I got sober at AA, he sent me back to him. "Now I have this real simple, easy-Dave-and-the-Big-Guy relationship," the frontman concluded. "There's no middle man. No funky stuff. No having to pay dues or membership or anything. And I don't push my beliefs on anyone. It's about attraction, not promotion." Megadeth released their latest studio effort "Super Collider" on June 4 via Tradecraft.
