MEGADETH RECORDS ACOUSTIC SET AT SIRIUSXM STUDIOS IN NEW YORK CITY

Megadeth recorded a five-song acoustic set yesterday (Thursday, August 8) for SiriusXM Radio in New York City. The band played "Symphony Of Destruction", "She-Wolf", "Kingmaker", "Foreclosure Of A Dream" and "Countdown To Extinction" for SiriusXM's rock channels Liquid Metal, Octane and Ozzy's Boneyard. SiriusXM Director of Programming & On-Air host, Jose Mangin interviewed Megadeth for Liquid Metal and recorded a Liquid Metal takeover.

After the band finished the acoustic set, Mangin picked up Dave Mustaine’s Dean Mako acoustic guitar to play "Holy Wars" along with the band; with a smile on his face, Dave then taught him how to play it correctly. Towards the end of the interview, Mustaine presented his Dean Mako to Jose as a parting gift. Follow @josemangin and @DaveMustaine on Twitter for more.

Jose Mangin posted the following on Instagram:

"After @megadeth performance @siriusxm @davemustaine gave me his @deanguitars #mako & my head is still spinning from yesterday's whole experience!!! Can't thank the guys enough for everything they did for us at SiriusXM (5 song acoustic performance, interview, takeover, FUSE TV stuff +++)! And of course thank you Dave for letting me jam Holy Wars on this guitar w the rest of Megadeth performing w me!!!!?!?!!?! Even though I played it wrong the lesson on how to correctly do it (harmonic heavy part towards end) was worth messing it up!"
