Dave Mustaine: 'Growing Up as a Redhead Kid - I Didn't Have a Lot of Friends'
Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine recently discussed his childhood, remembering some of the grim moments and early life struggles. While chatting with with WVOX, Mustaine admitted that school days clearly aren't a period he has fond memories of. "Growing up and being a redhead kid - you get picked on a lot in school and I didn't have a lot of friends and guitar was the one friend that I had," he said. "And I loved to play." Further remembering the early days, Dave couldn't help noticing that the more skilled he got at playing guitar, the more his life shifted for better. "As I got better - it's funny, the better you get at guitar, your friends kind of change," he added. "I think that's kinda applicable to anything - the better you get at something, the better the people are that you associate with." Mustaine continued, "You want to associate with people who are gonna challenge themselves. If you're hanging out with guys that are sitting around eating Cheetos and watching ESPN Classic all day, you might wanna ask yourself where you're going in your life." During the rest of the chat, the singer/guitarist discussed the importance of paying rock icons the respect they deserve and always checking out the influences of your favorite musicians. Listen to the full interview on Brave Words. The latest Megadeth studio effort, "Super Collider," dropped in early June via Tradecraft, landing at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 chart with 29,000 units shipped in the US within the first week.
