Folk Rocker Writes Song About Metallica Overshadowing Dave Mustaine
Folk rocker Robert Rolfe Feddersen wrote an interesting composition called "Dave's Lament" accompanying his upcoming studio effort "American Loser."

Dedicated to Megadeth mastermind Dave Mustaine, the song tells the story of Dave constantly staying in Metallica's shadow throughout his career. As Feddersen points out, he met both Mustaine and his former band, getting somewhat of an insight regarding the subject matter.

"I'm a good writer / I play great guitar / But I can't get over how farther they've gone / I'm staying sober / And trying real hard / But I can't jump over this fence in my yard," the track goes, just before switching to the chorus: "All of the success goes to Metallica / All of the accolades go to Metallica / All of the mansions and all of the money / And all of the good things and skies that are sunny."

Robert commented (via Loudwire): "In the late '90s, Lars Ulrich had a record label that wanted to sign my band, Loudmouth. I got to spend some time with him going to Metallica shows and actually got to play onstage with them in St. Louis. They played one of my songs called 'Not Free,' which was mind-blowing.

"A few years later, I found myself on tour with Megadeth," he continued. "Dave Mustaine and I hit it off almost immediately. Getting to know Dave, I became aware of just how hard his life had been and how much getting kicked out of Metallica affected and afflicted him."

"American Loser" is out on February 25, make sure to give "Dave's Lament" a listen below:
