    JACKSON Y2KV PROTOTYPE GUITAR ON AUCTION STARTING THURSDAY

    Dave Mustaine's personal ultra-rare prototype Jackson Y2KV (J6443) will be listed for auction at Megadeth's official eBay store starting Thursday evening, January 10. This natural unfinished Jackson prototype with a special branded Jackson logo on the headstock, was designed by Dave Mustaine and presented to him on 12/23/1998, and featured on several magazine covers including Guitar Magazine in 1999. This was the first guitar with the final 3+3 Y2KV head, but with dot inlays, rosewood fingerboard, alternate knobs and a blade switch. The body shape was not quite finalized either, but this was the first approved prototype, used by Dave Mustaine as reference for the final prototype. stores.ebay.com/theofficialmegadethstore

    'COUNTDOWN TO EXTINCTION' 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION REVIEW

    John Kindred for HardRock Haven has posted the following review: "After four albums, Mustaine had established Megadeth among his peers as a premier speed-thrash-metal band, featuring high-caliber musicians, backed by brilliantly crafted songs. ...The music still sounds amazing, and the messages are still relevant. Mustaine always did deliver very heavy, if not thought-provoking, concepts to the table." Read More

    MEGADETH LANDS IN TOP 10 METAL CONCERTS OF 2012 IN COLUMBUS

    Megadeth lands in Top 10 hard rock/heavy metal concerts for Columbus, Ohio list at Examiner.com. "Megadeth/Kyng at the LC Pavilion on November 20. This was Megadeth’s second stop in Columbus in 2012, but whereas their performance at Rock On The Range was pretty much a greatest hits show (albeit with the semi-obscure “Poison Was the Cure” and “Dawn Patrol” thrown in), their show at the LC featured the entire 'Countdown to Extinction' album performed in its entirety. Combine that with the most elaborate stage show the band has ever used, as well as an on-fire Dave Mustaine talking about politics, and you have the second best show at the LC and in Columbus this year. Kyng did an outstanding job opening for the thrash legends too." See the entire list at Examiner.com.

    Todd Newton for BigMusicGeek.com has posted the following review: "On the brilliant Countdown To Extinction: 20th Anniversary Edition (2012), an expertly assembled twenty-eight song collection of Heavy Metal, each track, beginning with the arguably-autobiographical “Skin O' My Teeth” and the thunderous first single “Symphony Of Destruction”, instantly commands the rapt and undivided attention of even the most jaded and unimaginative of listeners."

    DAVE MUSTAINE FEATURED IN NEW ISSUE OF METAL HAMMER

    Dave Mustaine is featured in the January, 2013 edition of U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine. In the new issue, Dave opens up about his critics, politics, the Internet and more. "We believe that we're the greatest country in the world, and yet right now there's so much attacking on both sides – race wars, sex wars, religious wars. It certainly gives me a lot to write about musically, but it's real predictable to write about politics."
