Dave Mustaine. Current affairs issues, the way music is today and random things like how does he keeps his hair looking so good.Do you have a favorite Megadeth guitar solo?
Holy Wars.To you, are Megadeth songs more feeling or more thinking?
Both. This is what makes Megadeth so great. The music does not just make you feel good but resonates with your mind and soul. Not many bands have that combination.Have you introduced anyone else to Megadeth?
Yes. My sister.Which Megadeth song means the most to you and why?
Right now, The Hardest Part of Letting Go as I lost my dad last year.What do you like best about being in the Cyber Army?
It is like being in a family. Joined other bands fan clubs and it is not the same.When did you join the club and what is your Cyber Army member number?
Joined in 2012.Member No. 12412.What do you admire most in Dave Mustaine?
His honesty, the way he treats the fans with respect and despite being a legend he has never forgotten his roots.What are your thoughts on the new album "Super Collider"?
This is an album where the thinking aspect of Megadeth's music comes in. Forget to Remember will be a classic.What does being a true Megafan mean to you?
Treating other Megadeth fans with respect and helping each other out especially fans coming to the concert from overseas. At the Singapore concert all the Cyber Army members were like family and of course supporting the band all the way.Have you got any interesting Megadeth stories for us?
Megadeth finally came to Singapore in 2007 for the United Abominations tour. I was in the emergency room the night before but there was no way I was missing the concert. My sister was grabbing me the whole time as I could barely stand. But when the music came on I was in heavy metal heaven.
It is also a special feeling when my friends from neighbouring countries like Brunei (where heavy metal is banned) fly down to Singapore to catch Megadeth. It's like a mini United Nations here.
