MEGADETH’s Dave Mustaine: “Thank You For The Fan Mail”


The main man of MEGADETH took time out recently to hit up the band’s online forum and answer a letter that was sent to him. His response is addressed to a Droogie (Megadeth fan) named Draven from Surrey, B.C., Canada.


Thank you for the fan mail that you took the time to write and send me; in fact thank you to everyone that snail mails me fan mail still. I am writing to answer your letter, which is very unlike how I usually do this. I am forced to do it here because I have had the letter and the envelope go in two different directions.

Anyway, I read your letter and I agree with you about some people can be dumb when the judge you for the t-shirt you are wearing, or that you like the band you do and are not following the bands that they like.

You also had a question about how to play better, and I can be heard giving those tips on Megadeth Radio or at TheLiveLine. If you don’t hear it there, keep listening and checking back in because we are always in the process of updating stuff. This happens the most when I get back from tours when I have free time.

Have a great weekend my Droog!”

    Dear Dave Mustaine, I just wanted to say thanks.
    Your music has really powerful meaning and inspires me to do a lot, singing and playing the guitar. I wish I could get the chance to meet you in person, but that’s okay, hehe, I also wish I could get a fan letter. But that’s okay also, at least as long as you’ll see this and know how much I apperciate you and the bands work.
    Well thanks for listening, good-bye, take care! 🙂

    Has Dave Lost his mind endorsing rick santorum? Dave your music does not reflect the gop agenda. Peace sells but who’s buying? The gop is definietly not for peace. Starting wars for there profit. (Letting thousands of our soilders die for a senseless war). They are the true evil. The drugs you’ve taken finally have eaten your brain cells. I’ve gone the born again route and its a bunch of bullshit. If you open your eyes you’ll see it just another way of controlling you.They just want to push there agenda, and its not the sermon on the mount,It’s Tax breaks for the rich, send poor people to war, consertives want live babys so we can raise them to be dead soilders for there wars. Rick santorum said” If your wife gets raped you can’t abort the zygote because its a gift from god”. So your wife has to see her rapiest face for the rest of her life.
    Your music is going to suck now because every song has to be about jesus. Seriously snap out of it. TELL ME SOMETHING ITS STILL WE THE PEOPLE RIGHT? As soon as you become born again you have to vote gop. They really got you F’ed up, your falling right into place. Come on man where’s your balls?
