Dave Mustaine: 'I Have a Terrible Reputation'
Megadeth front man Dave Mustaine has been speaking to Metal Hammer recently, offering some candid insights into his often controversial statements. "I don't say things to get a reaction" said Mustaine. "The stuff that I write about is important to me. Some of the subjects on 'Peace Sells...(But Who's Buying?)' are still relevant, particularly environmental issues. And the personal stuff is relevant. I've written songs about loss and pain everyone goes through that so, no, I'm not being provocative. We actually have fun songs too. If you're p-ssed off, the title track on 'Super Collider' or 'Symphony Of Destruction' might make you feel better. "Probably the biggest thing that has harmed my career is being misunderstood but is it better to be understood or to understand? I understand much more now so I'm less inclined to be preaching or complaining about being misquoted now. There are people who love me and people who don't, but everyone's entitled. I have love in my heart for both. I don't get mad about the people who dislike me. You can get obsessed with that. Someone doesn't like me? Tough shit for me!" He continued: "I am approachable! But I have a terrible reputation. There was a guy who used to manage me, and when we had a falling out I think he started rumours about me being difficult. But we became friends again, and reconciled. And that was all part of a process of reconciliation, including with Metallica and Ellefson, too. And do you know what? When that happened my injured arm and injured thumb started working again. Crazy, huh?" Read UG interview with Dave Mustaine here.
