This years line up for Mayhem is insane! This is the first festival where I wanted to see every band on the line up perform. One of those must see bands for me was Megadeth! I have seen these guys play all over the United States at many different venue’s, and it’s always the same thing of kick ass riffs and guitar solo’s at high volumes! Even their crazy unplugged acoustic performance in the KBPI studio back in 2001 was kick ass riffs and guitar solo’s at high volumes!
Megadeth’s performance didn’t disappoint, they even give a Dave Mustaine’s guitar away in the middle of the set! Dave basically hands the lucky winner the guitar off his back! Check out the Mayhem Fest website for details on this insanity!
As the festival was wrapping up, I was back stage waiting for Disturbed to hit the stage and out walks Megadeth’s bass player Dave Ellefson wearing the OTR-WML t-shirt! It was so badass to see this. I had a chance early that day to talk with Dave about his favorite record store experience and to let him check out the book and the details of the project. This was one of the most coolest and down to earth people you could meet. I’m very thankful to see such a great musician supporting the project, and wearing the t-shirt!
