October 27, 2009 - DAVE MUSTAINE: "KEEP THE REQUESTS COMING"
I am so happy that you are digging the station. Hopefully a lot of the talk in between will keep you amused. And I know that the song selection is getting groomed and improved every day except Sundays, you know why, and because I think I am also going to see my hometown team the Chargers (you know, the ones without the ponytails and the players having a hard time deciding if they are football players or rock stars) take on my favorite team since I was a kid, the RAIDERS.
This will be tough, but in a way kinda like watching two friends fight.
Ever notice how chick fights are so much more vicious than dudes. I remember watching some girls that appeared to be in some group, beat up a lone girl, and I was just a 12 year old, but it was savage! Even while sitting on the ground in complete submission, this group of girls found it necessary to keep attacking this single girl, kicking her in the face and head.
Life is so funny at times how quickly people can turn on something or someone. That is why I am so grateful right now for the success we have, and for the way that the band keeps growing in stature and status, but also how we continue to put great performances down, keep growing closer to you all, and continue to outlast the critics.
Our next leg will be with Slayer and people said, "it wouldn't happen," then they said, "well, it won't last for long," then they said, "well, it won't happen again," and we are heading back up to Canada to meet with them.
I was in my dressing room with Dave and Kerry hanging out and we were all celebrating our success, and I got to ask Kerry, "what it was that I did that pissed you off so bad, so that I can fix it," and of course we were interupted and the conversation stopped. So, I look forward to seeing the guys, and some of you don't know that when Tom got sick, I actually invited Kerry to come play an old Megadeth song, because he played in Megadeth for a very short time, while helping me out because I was still looking for a guitarist and he was already in Slayer.
Now, I imagine they will be saying, "well, that's it, and those lucky f*ckers, we'll never get to see this event." To this I say, "Anything is possible!"
Keep the requests coming to the station and keep the comments coming to me at TLL. Until the next time we can catch up, keep your eyeballs peeled, because I went into my chat room yesterday, just for the fun of it.
