I really like Dance in the Rain, Beginning of Sorrow, Forget To Remember, SuperCollider, Crazy, Black As Crow, Burn, Kingmaker, Cold Cold Sweat....What does being a true Megafan mean to you?
Being a part of a group of some amazing people, Megadeth fans are just cool.
I've met the best of friends where our love for Megadeth was what we had in commonHave you got any interesting Megadeth stories for us?
I have always felt Megadeth incomparable, purely entertaining and and at concerts they had a magnetic energy I quickly became addicted to.
It was my mission to express my appreciation in a way that would mean more than my words could, so I made Dave a stained glass window of the bands logo.
He was so thankful. I'll never forget how happy I felt when later he told me it was in his office.
Over the years I've experienced some tough times (who hasn't?) but what's important is that listening to Megadeth helped give me strength and
their shows gave me something positive to look forward to when it felt like I had nothing else.
I think it's huge when something you create has the power to change someone for the better and I wanted to do the same for him.
If it continues to remind him of how thankful I am and how loved he and his music is, my mission is accomplished!
