It’s been almost one year of consistent blogging here at The New Rockstar Philosophy, and we haven’t even really touched on the Metal scene.
On a random YouTube search, I came across some vids of Dave Mustaine of Megadeth doing a Q & A on his life in the business. He goes on about songwriting, understanding the importance of sacrifice, not doing it for money, advice for up and coming acts, the good and bad of the internet, and more.
I was expecting more Metallica bashing, but found him to be incredibly mellow. level headed, and readily available to answer questions. Candid, straight shooter type stuff.
Worth checking out even if you’re aren’t a metal-head
