CKY guitarist/vocalist Deron Miller has slammed Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine for threatening to cancel any shows where "full-on Satanic" bands are also scheduled to appear (read story on UG). In a statement sent to Blabbermouth.net, Miller wrote, "reading that Rotting Christ has to cancel shows because of Dave Mustaine's recent and absurdly sudden Christianity is one of the most obviously ridiculous dramatic newslines in music. This from the guy that wrote 'Wake Up Dead'.

"Dave, I love Megadeth, but join reality. Metallica was more succesful...so what?! Get over it. And now all of a sudden Christ is your savior... How weak. Take some credit for your own accomplishments.

"Remember in the '80s when the parents of your fans insisted that you were Satanic? You have turned into them. Stop creating drama. Your music is suffering and the fans have noticed. You've given Rotting Christ the 'Hook In Mouth'!!!!!!! Don't ruin your legacy for the longtime supporters."

    I'm getting so sick of all these guys going Christo on us. What the hell is the world coming to? When are people going to wake up? I always had Mustaine pegged for a fairly intelligent guy. Never expected this from him.

    Liam Alan: The man has the right not to want to be involve with such things. It is a free country. Everyone else should get over it.
    dipshit, the shows were in europe.

    i dont see it as that far of a stretch.... Dave always said he had nothing against him and had a whole lot of respect for him as a guitarist.

    Rotting Christ never said *** mustaine or anything like that, whoever said it, they just said they chose not to go ahead with the gig unlike Dave and his discrimination.
    CKY_Alliance
    WOW,some of you sound like you think that CKY is a satanic band....well they are far from it...i guess Deron thought soemthing needed to be said so he said it.~~dotn like it get the *** over it.
    FLESH_INTO_GEAR
    CKY are not gay you retarded jumped up wannabe gangster! and CKY aren't skaters so all of you saying that get your ***ing facts straight or how can you expect anyone to take you seriously
    dub_1211
    can't we all agree that CKY has no talent and bam can suck my margera??? greasy little twit. he chokes on cock nightly.

    im not mental: first head, now mustaine. what's next, dani filth?
    yep, dave mustaine went back in time after head became a christain just so that he was a christain first. you really got that one right. retard.
    DiscipleOfRock: Deron Miller must be a very retarded man or something, because I don't think he took the time to read Dave Mustaine's statement before blasting him out of the water. Rotting Christ is not being forced to do anything. Mustaine is simply pulling Megadeth from that tour. Rotting Christ will be playing as usual. To Deron Miller - Get your facts straight. Don't hate on Dave because you don't have anywhere near his amount of skill.
    dont be a dumbshit. Deron wasn't bashing dave, he was telling him he's taking it too far. about that last part, since when do you have to have tons of skill to use your freedom of speech? ***ing idiot.

    WenDrknessFalls: And all u Metallica bitches, i used 2 b a big fan, but Megadeth r just so much better, it was metallicas loss really. Just look at St.Anger!! T.S.H.F is still real metal. What was Kirk Hammet thinkin not putting solos on there!? That guy who sed Miller is a better musician then Mustaine is blowing out his ass. Mustaine can do whatever he wants, its his tour.
    I so agree..... Megadeth never turned there back on there fans. Funny how kirt was talking about all that shit on some kind of monster about how the needed to do solo's because he didnt want to forget what got them there and then no solo's. HMMMM i wonder who shot him down. I dont think he is gonna put up with lars and james shit much longer. I say that Kirt and Dave hook up for an album.

    Ok with megadeth withdrawing from that tour its going to leave alot of pissed of people, and the blame will obviously focus on rotting christ. Dave is a great guitarist, as is deron from cky. But if Dave is not going to play a concert because a band believes somethign different to him is showing him in the light of an *******. This is basically saying you better believe in Jesus or I wont play. That is not what the bible originally teached, until some big headed ***ers decided to cram it down our throats. Come on, Mustaine lived one of the most anti christian life styles and I think it is good that he has something to hold onto now. But it doesnt mean he should deprive fans world wide because a satanic band (which is mainly for the gimic anyway) is playing the same festival, its not like its a co headline or they are being forced to collaberate. If dave cannot handle the fact people do believe in other things that have nothing to do with christianity. A knife in the throat provided by his own willpower is well deserved.

    ^ That's not what happened at all you idiot, That band wasn't just Non-Christian it was satanic and ANTI-Christian. He wasn't refusing to play with them because they didn't believe the same things as him, they were openly opposing and insulting the things he believed in
    I think its safe to say that Deron Miller is twice the musician Mustaine is or ever will be. Not only does he play very good guitar riffs, he SINGS over those riffs. Mustianr shreds, anyone can shred.
    lol I actually laughed at that WOW! He can play riffs AND sing! Well F ucking Hell, Randy Rhoads and Jimi Hendrix have been reincarnated as the one person! play some sh itty CKY riffs AND Sing! WOW! call the F ucking papers on this one! Dave Mustaine Rules

    wow, most of you obviously need to get your facts straight. CKY first of all are NOT a skater band. None of them do skate...yes they got a lot of promotion from bam on jackass, but they were famous before jackass was even a show. Most the people posting here saying CKY suck, have probably not even heard a CKY song before. Deron miller and chad Ginsburg are some of the best guitarists ive ever heard. and to the person that said that deron miller is nazi...your an idiot. Chad ginsburg...the other guitarist....is JEWISH. Now, CKY and megadeth are both VERY talented bands. Im not siding with either, im just trying to say that until you people get your facts straight about CKY then dont say crap about them.

    Dave Mustaine Couldn't hold a candle to Deron's Riff " Testing " Hell he couldn't even hold Deron's jock on " 96 Quite Bitter Beings "

    I honestly don't get you queers... Religion and metal just do not mix. if you talk about christ on a show full of metal heads PREPARE TO BE FLAMED UPON! either dave knew what he said and prepared to be flamed or he's ignorant. either way Cky doesn't suck, Megadeth doesn't suck all of you making this a big deal suck because rock n roll is all about rocking out to the people (yes!) and stopping a band to have there chance to rock if fu*king sh*t. next thing you know maybe some other frontman will say "excuse but all of you people in the crowd please do not have sex until your married cause it's a sin and i find it very uncomfortable to be around" Dave should consider getting bands that have nothing to do with satan in the first place then, so in other words they should sponser a tour but not be in it because they to worship satan. satan gave us Rock and Groupies and I say "Rock N Fu*king Roll down the High way to hell"

    Ha ha thats what i was thinking And besides Im sure the reason he wouldent want to play with bands like deicide is A.HEs religous 2.MD is a big band they dont need to stoop so low as to play with some faggy death metal bands that think he should kill Christians
    WenDrknessFalls
    "I say that Kirt and Dave hook up for an album" That would b so cool! but the chances r pretty slim! We can always hope. I havnt seen Some kind of monster yet. Ill have 2 get round 2 that sumtime
    WenDrknessFalls
    Dave Mustain is a GOD!! He shud have his own religion!, i like Cky, but they are so far away from being anywhere near as good as Megadeth. And all u Metallica bitches, i used 2 b a big fan, but Megadeth r just so much better, it was metallicas loss really. Just look at St.Anger!! T.S.H.F is still real metal.

    personal message to Dave Mustaine and anyone who is dissin CKY over their comments... STOP WHINGING YOU LITTLE BABIES!! dave failed get over it

    Sometimes I sit and wonder, why the world is round, and then I type into a forum, but it matters not, for the onliest onlies to read this post are reading way too many to have a life in the first place... so I value not their opinion.

    Mustaine is one of the greatest musicians of all time. His guitar is insane.
    I think its safe to say that Deron Miller is twice the musician Mustaine is or ever will be. Not only does he play very good guitar riffs, he SINGS over those riffs. Mustianr shreds, anyone can shred.
    are you ***ing retarded?
    Tim_5150
    Get over it! It's Dave Mustanes choice, and in case you forgot those bands are just covering. Dave has every right to reject any band covering for them if he thinks it's best for the image of the band and for the fans.

    Who caes if de doesn't forgive f*** Metallica! They sold out! the band practically died along with Cliff Burton!

    So what if they f*cking sold out?? Metallica easily changed the world with all of their first 5albums, so shut the f*ck up and stop whining.. I dont wanna start a discussion.. But in my opinions Metallica kinda "died" after the Black album's release.. But so f*cking what, I still love Metallica and their music still means a lot to me!

    yeah

    derons not slamming him.... hes asking him not to ruin his legacy by doing this..
    axeman84
    so someone finds christ,,,,why impose your "beliefs" on others'? a REAL musician once said, "shut up and play your guitar"
    Estranged_1
    look the guys doesnt have to play with whoever he wants for whatever reason..... my band would never share a stage with blink no matter how much publicity it would bring us..... hell i dont believe in god or christ but i wouldnt be touring with someone thats on a f*** christ tour.... These anti christ bands could spend there time much more productivly than bashing somthing that brings others happiness.

    HAS ANYONE HEARD EXILED ARCHANGEL BY ROTTING CHRIST??? THAT HAS ONE HUUU..GE LEGENDARY RIFF AT 2 MINS 40 (OR ABOUT THERE)
    psykopoo
    dont let mustaine hear you say that, he mite reckon u have satanic tendenies ;p. no offense to mustiaine tho, he was amazing when i went to see them at manchester in march
    southern_stylin
    What would you guys be saying if Rotting Christ had said that they refused to play with Megadeth because Dave is a Christian? It's the same thing. I am not religious as I stated before and my old bass player was very much so, we got along fine, we're still good friends. And by the way, Dave=Rocks, Deron=Rocks, just for those of ya that have to take sides. Can't we all just get the *** along?
    caseygustaveson
    Cky kicks ass, they are totally kicking Megadeth's ass right now. In case you haven't noticed, you can find more people listening to African Techno then Megadeth's newest albumn. IT SUCKED. I love Megadeth, even more than Metallica, but Mustaine is seriously just as much of a douche as Ulrich is. First he hates Metallica, then Dimebag dies and he says he doesn't anymore, then he does again.....What the Fuc*? And a tip for Mustaine about stopping those bands from playing.....DON'T LISTEN!!!! Just because you are touring with them, doesn't mean they have to have the same beliefs as you do! SHIT!
    FLESH_INTO_GEAR
    hey ***o who said CKY is nothing, you obviously never heard their stuff, so *** off! Deron Miller is right about this though (not being biased at all lol) Dave Mustaine has turned into someone he's supposed to be rebelling against as a rock star.
    FLESH_INTO_GEAR
    i just read some more comments that i didnt before, how can anyone say CKY aren't talented musicians, just because they aren't as well known. seriously, go find some of their music and listen to it, they are all brilliant songs, which is more than can be said for megadeth
    recliner33
    Dave Mustaine can do whatever the **** he wants and some crappy band by the name of cky isn't going to have a say in it.

    Why have a go at him? He's just defending a world wide reglion. Anyone loyal to their faith would.

    damn if i someday would see that f...er i would kick his A..s

    minimanson: another reason to hate megadeth.... cant wait for them to go away finally
    How about you first hear their music, so that you have something to form an opinion on, instead of looking like an idiot like all the other little mustaine bashers here. He's a great musician and 10 times the guitarist any of us will probably be. If he doesn't want to play next to satanic bands, then thats how it is. Your church does it all the time. Banning and forsaking shit to the right and left. If Dave accepts people for whatever they belive, and plays his great songs alongside them, thats cool. If he wants to break their legs, thats cool to.
    Munje
    By the way, Metallica constantly changed their style of music, wich is why they appealed to a bigger fanbase. Megadeth stayed true to the metal fans. Sales don't mean shit.
    The Powerslave
    It's ridiculous because if Dave became Muslim or jewish, and played with a band called, say, Rotting Allah, there wouldnt be an outrage, and people would be saying he's right, and the band are blasphemous, but because its a anti-Christian band we seem immune, and think Dave Mustaine is being silly. I'm not Christian by the way, so I'm not biased, I just think the CKY man is being an arse.
    EatsP1es
    well i am christian and what you're saying is right Powerslave, people need to realise that Christianity is just as much a religion as any other and theres no reason that it should be signled out for ridiculing unlike other religions simply becuase christians cant play the 'you're being racist' line
