QuestionHey I recently purchased a vintage Megadeth Tshirt from a guy online who assured me it was from 1993. At the bottom of the artwork on the front of the shirt it even says "93' Repka" which suggests the shirt was made in 1993 as promised and also designed by Ed Repka but on the back of the tshirt is something bizarre, it says the words "DR VIC IS IN" which makes no sense to me what so...

QuestionHello Scorpion, I was looking through the pictures on Pledge Music and saw some very cool guitar stands that Dave had for his VMNTs. I was wondering if you could tell me the make and model of the stand. I love how they hold the VMNT straight up and keep the edges well above the ground and they seem to work well for Kiko's guitars as well. I've been having a hard time finding a good...

I have previously owned Angel of Deth, but i sold it because it felt little bit fragile and maybe cheap "mahogany shouldn't be that light imo". I have since started to think that i would get "Rust in Peace" since it´s my favorite album. Then i started...

QuestionScorpioN, I discovered Megadeth shortly after So Far, So Good... So What! Since then I've been to dozens of live shows. Particularly during the 90s and early 2000s many of the shows opened with spoken audio directed at the audience as if we were living in an Orwellian state (similar to the opening for Endgame). Sometimes the tracks had music and sound effects as well. As a fan of...
