Andrew explains...How long you have been coming to the Megadeth forums?
Since I joined the Cyber Army back in 2013Have you met the band?
Yes 3 times...but Never got my picture with the Band, my time with them was about 10 - 15 mins and everyone wants to meet and greet.If so, what did you say?
I remember talking to Dave Mustaine at a before concert meet and greet, (Fall time, was in the upper 40's) when I lived in Connecticut, I Had told him that I was from Arizona, He had reply... Dude what are you going here its cold outside go back home to Tucson where it’s warm. 6 years later Wife and I with your new born moved back to Tucson.What's the furthest you've travelled to see Megadeth?
When I moved from AZ to CT and saw Megadeth in Hartford, CT. Now Driving to Phoenix 2hr drive. This last time Megadeth rolled in my back yard 20 min drive. It was FREE CONCERT, Was in the Front right side where Chris Broderick plays. He gave me the thumbs up. That Dude is cool!!! Just as cool as Marty Friedman and David Ellefson and Shawn Dover!!!If you had a chance to chat with any one of the band members, who would you talk to and what would you want to discuss?
If and when I get the chance to see Dave Mustaine again, I would like to tell him Thank you for all the years and to experience Megadeth concert 22 times.Do you have a favorite Megadeth guitar solo?
Holy Wars....that song just a Kick Ass.To you, are Megadeth songs more feeling or more thinking?
To me it’s both. There was a really hard time in my life not too long ago, and I turned to the 13th album and listen to 13 help straighten my life out and it took 2 years but I made it. There were also other songs that help out as well.Have you introduced anyone else to Megadeth?
My Hero in my life My Son, I turned it on for him when he was born, he can to realize the music when he was 4, and asked what this music was. I told him Son...This is Megadeth!!!! He loves them as I do. His favorite song is the song I loved since the beginning "Symphony of Destruction" If you have been to Megadeth Concert there is a part where the crowd sings, "Megadeth..M..M..M Megadeth"
he loves this part.Which Megadeth song means the most to you and why?
Trust, In my life I have realize Trust is the most important part in everyone’s lives.What do you like best about being in the Cyber Army?
I just got my Network coffee mug sign by the man Dave Mustaine!!!When did you join the club and what is your Cyber Army member number?
2013, Mega ID is 14153What do you admire most in Dave Mustaine?
The man is kind willing to do whatever he can do on this Earth. I still think his mission is not done yet. A hand injury will not stop him from playing the guitar.What are your thoughts on the new album "Super Collider"?
Just like any album it takes time to absorb. It’s a great album. Love the song "The Blackest Crow" and “Dancing in the rain”What does being a true Megafan mean to you?
To me Mega fan is the best feeling in the world when you make connection with someone wearing a Megadeth T-shirt and tell that person you got the right band.Have you got any interesting Megadeth stories for us?
After 21 year of Megadeth concerts I have a lot of stories, The most recent was in Phoenix 2013 at the state fair, a buddy (Vince) and I went down in the arena where there is a bar.. Over hear people talking about meeting Megadeth...they took us with them...they tried to get us back stage but didn’t work...I have given my 2013 Cyber Army pass to one of the guest. She had it signed by Dave Mustaine...then the couple had ask for my tickets and I told them you don't want this ticket seats they suck...he said just trade me...So I did, They were comp tickets Front row seating. Was a great f_ing Time. Then after the concert I got one of the play lists... This lady grabs it out of my hands and tore it in a 100 pieces. Everyone saw what happened one of the Megadeth crew gave me a new list. Then walked back of the stage by one of the crew members got to meet Shawn had him sign my play list but then other security can around and said I had to leave.
