My parents played Megadeth in my dad's truck when I was 7 years old. 8 years ago when Megadeth came to Raleigh my parents went to the concert, they had a Megadeth Peace Sells jacket signed by all the members in the band. My hamster around 1/2 a year to a year later chewed a small chunk out of the jacket. The hamster did not chew the the image of the peace sells cover or the band names... it was close. Now I can't wait to get a Megadeth merch signed but I will frame it and put it above my wall next to my guitars...Lesson learned!
