I really have no problem with Dave Mustaine per se, just the fact that 2 of his lead guitarists, Marty Friedman and Al Pitrelli smoke his ass out of the water, it annoys me that he gets a signature model guitar and (as far as I know) those two don't.

can I just ask why this is in the 80s rock, shred and prog forum?

ok megadeth started in the 80's but as far as I know theres a megadeth thread in the metal forum.

dont see him as shred (marty friedman yes but Dave...no)

and I dont see megadeth as a prog band.

maybe I'm just missing it completely.

On the new DM Dean signature, I heard the headstock gets stuck up the arse end of the guitar, like the man himself.

But seriously though, you know when people get sponsored by something they come out with all the normal tedious crap about 'this company is the best to take me forward' and whatever, but the stuff Mustaine is coming out with about Dean...really insincere and over the top. Have a look on the website to see for yourself, and the radio on the site is all Deth songs!

No one has answered my question yet! Why do people think he is such a dick head, I know a he has an ego but it can't be that bad.

i dont like dean....the play pretty nice but those headstocks man they are fooking huge and i dont really like the way they "exploit" dimebags name by tagging his name on almost every goddamn ML or those new razorbacks but thats just my humble opinion

old megadeth is great though

Dave Mustaine does not have en ego problem. only un-educated metallica fans would think so.

your so wrong.
i hate metallica, love megadeth, yet i know dave has an ego problem
look what hes done w/ the line ups, read his interviews ... & worst of all, when he doesnt get his way he finds a way to do it ... (all his sig models ... start w/ jackson)

I admit he may have in the past but for the past few years he's changed a lot. He does so much for his fans, he takes time out of his busy life to make a couple posts every week and let everyone know whats happening, hang around the megadeth forums and you'll see what I'm talking about. If anyone has an ego problem, its lars ulrich. He's been shitting on his fans for years but dave treats us very good.
#22
dave mustaine does have an ego, i wouldn't go so far as to say it's a problem, i think his ego is tamed nowadays, it was just a problem when megadeth was young. dave is awesome though, and i can't wait for united abominations

None of us has the right to say how he is as a guy, do any of us know him, doubtful. BUT, from the crap he comes out with interviews and what some interviewers have reported his behaviour like, he seems like a gimp. Alright, this might be normal to some of you out there, but anyone who says 'I know I am talented' just like they were passing the time of day is not just confident, they're arrogant! I would never say it to his face though, he's a master of some sort of martial art.
#25
I don't like really like Dean guitars. ESPs are better.
I can't make up my mind how I feel about Dave, he's an interesting guy I guess. His vocals are awful but funny; his music is not amazing, but great at the same time. I think at the end of the day I love the guy and love Megadeth regardless.
#26
i think hes really onlky good at rhythm guitar.

and dean guitars suck, every single dean ive played was crap

WTF!?

Was ESP not good enough for him?

Dean's way over-rated now. Sure, when Dime was using their guitars, it was dandy-diddly fine, but now every other guitarist's moving to them!

The dean that is being marketed as the Mustaine sig model, I hate it, that flamed top looks lame, but the gray one he actually plays rules. As does Mustaine, he's a god among men. He plays rhythm faster and better than 80% of guitarists play lead. He left ESP because of issues with the way his guitars were being handled and marketed, and delivered and a bunch of really stupid things at the end of the day. I'm waiting for his return to Jackson.

And to say the other guitarists get ripped off is just stupid. Dave endorsing a company becomes a package deal for the band, he makes sure no one gets screwed. When he endorsed the KV-1, Marty was given just as many KE-1's. When he went to ESP, ESP made a bunch of guitars to the wishes of Drover, and when he went to Dean they made copies of all Drover's guitars and they made a bunch of bass guitars for Lomenzo.

Oh, and every guitar player has ego, if they don't they need to get one, otherwise what's the point. Playing guitar, and being famous are all about being better, cooler, and more rad than everyone else that has ever lived.
