We asked Wagner...How long have you been a Megadeth fan?
Since age 18. But my passion grew stronger by the band when I saw them live in monster of rock 95. Found that megadeth is more than band but a lifestyle!What was the first Megadeth song you ever heard?
It was the holy wars. A friend of mine told me, "Dude? Hear this.'ll Change your life! To better!"Was there a certain song that made you a Megadeth fan?
Hard to say! But I identify a lot with "a tout le monde".What are your three favorite Megadeth songs?
Easier said lottery numbers, laughs! But I will talk anyway, Holy wars, symphony, A tout le monde, because my girlfriend heard this song when it was healed of cancer. The other two I chose the coin toss, laughs!What is your favorite Megadeth album?
