frontman Dave Mustaine
is planning to open up the band's California recording studio to under-privileged kids - to teach them about rock 'n' roll.
The rockers own a building in San Diego, California which has housed all their recording equipment over the last few years.
has decided to make better use of the space by turning it into a learning centre for children from deprived backgrounds - and he has vowed to teach them all to play instruments.
He tells Britain's Kerrang magazine, "I want to give something back. I'm not one of these guys who needs a lot of money, but because I've been so overpaid during my career I'm going to invite some inner-city kids to the studio and teach them about music.
"Some of these kids have the talent, but not the means to show it. Wouldn't it be awesome to find a kid and bless his life with music and give him a career?
