TheScorpionKing: Dave, what prompted you to insert Liar into the set starting in Tampa? I was there and it was awesome to hear live.


megaman: i heard the guys from LOG playing and there were a few notes that ther weren't doing right, so i went in and tried to remember it myself, and thought i would do it as a gift to them since they obviously like it,

:lol: Amazing how the band can just spur of the moment jam out a song like that they haven't rehearsed or anything at a headlining concert, major props to Dave for that. But next time he's gotta hit up Good Mourning/Black Friday and raise that fucker from the crypts:bouville:

Zarathustra: "Out on the Tiles" - Should we expect your vocal interpretation to convey the level of sexuality present in the original, or did you opt to change the tone? In the same vein, should we expect the guitars to have a definite blues sound, or will they have the trademark Megadeth sound which is the quintessence of metal? Why did you choose to cover this song?


megaman: i dunno, i did it my way, and i dont know if i sound sexy at all.

megaman: i am happy for the tigers. the yankees have had tremendous success, and it good to see a city that is struggling with lay offs and what not to have a ray of hope.

so i am pulling for detroit.

that doesn't mean i think they will win. it means i am a fan of the detroit tigers for the playoff runto the world series.


I feel like I'm becoming stupider reading this chat, oy!

still talking about it. You guys were great, please don“t left 8 years to pass to come again
ok?.
megaman: the DVD will be out soon. it is so beautiful, it is the best live DVD i have ever seen of anyone. you could put the mentors in the video over my face and it would look like an academy award movie.

Dave Mustaine of Megadeth
Sunday, Oct 8 - 5:00PM - 6:00PM EDT

Rockchickbabe: Hi Dave, how are you hon? We miss you
megaman: i am stoked!

megachic2: How are you feelin Dave?
megaman: like i said i am stoked = great

jeremy1985: hey dave, how different was Donnington from when you played there in 2005 to '88?
megaman: we were facing a different direction, the staging was different and the fans were insane this last time

Yuka: Hi, Dave! Welcome back to Japan! We all love you! See you at Loud Park in Makuhari!
megaman: i cant wait to come to japan, i look forward to all your smiling faces, and ramen shops, everything!!!

megathom: Hey Dave, why did you decide to play Washington's next live? Is it representative of United Abominations?
megaman: it is a song from the new record

markodeth: Dave, what did you think of Dark Angel back in the day?
megaman: i am not too familiar, but have considered them often for Gigantour.

Droogie: Hi Dave, is "Out on the Tiles" set to be the Japanese bonus track on UA?
megaman: it depends on how the record finishes, it could be the best song. i think it rocks!

Angryskeleton: I've read you've got a great chemistry with the Drovers, what about J Lo?
megaman: two nights ago i was finally able to let go of david ellefson. i had always compared everyone to him that followed him, but two nights ago, i realized that James is my new soul mate on bass guitar. i absolutely stand by him as my new best buddie!

debby: It has been such a long time since you where on the boards, we miss you, how are you doing?
megaman: i have been withdrawing to make gigantour a great thing. it was difficult this year, and i just let my management go over some stuff, but i still love them and i know megs will be stronger than ever next year

megachic2: Happy to see Liar on the setlist, will it be a regular addition?
megaman: for a while

Jaxijin: How is this Gigantour compared to the last one?
megaman: there have been some of the same challenges, and some new ones, but the fans have been the best and the bands all get along great!!!

verixStar: Do U ever think that GIGANTOUR would gonna be such a blast?
megaman: i had hope, and i am talking to my agent mike dewdney in the uk a bit about bringing gigantour to europe and the uk in april when the new record is released. and i want to talk to some of the bands from clash of the titans to do it with me

JayMorris88: Out of the two Gigantour tours you have done, which were your favorite bands to tour with?
megaman: i have love for all of the bands, even the ones you guys hate. they are all great people, and i want to use whatever pull i have left to give it to these new bands. i know some people think this is selling out, and i agree, i am selling out my knowledge to these new bands for free.

Zarathustra: "There are not more than five musical notes, yet the combination of these five give rise to more melodies than can ever be heard." Would you be so kind as to remove Sun Tzus' analogous efforts to elaborate on tactical variations and apply the quote literally to assess your creative possibilities and future career?
megaman: simplify your question and i will try you polyglot

jeremy1985: hey dave, will megadeth / gigantour be coming to the UK anytime soon?
megaman: i talked to my agent yesterday in the uk, and unless after the parting of ways between my former manager and i affect our relationship, i see no reason to question this fantastic agents ability to bring us to you. we talked about possibly april and then again later for festival. gigantour euro/uk will be prolly five bands and small venues to build our fan base

TheScorpionKing: Dave, what prompted you to insert Liar into the set starting in Tampa? I was there and it was awesome to hear live.
megaman: i heard the guys from LOG playing and there were a few notes that they weren't doing right, so i went in and tried to remember it myself, and thought i would do it as a gift to them since they obviously like it

P.Matei: What do you remember about colaboration with Lee Ving in punk/metal band MD.45 ?
megaman: i really look up to lee.

JayMorris88: I just have to say Dave, Thanks for the 2 dedications in Montreal, one for Cliff, it almost put me into tears, and your little speech about Dawson shootings.
megaman: i am sorry you feel it was a "little speech". my heart was so saddened when i heard that your fellow citizens were wounded or died, but then to be connected to it later. i got PISSED!

DethStorm: Hey Dave. What inspired you to put the old RIP classic Take No Prisoners back on the setlist? I think everyone is in great approval of that decision =]
megaman: you can thank the Drovers and James Lomenzo. they want the best for you fans

megaman: we are looking at march of 2007

djamior: Why is Rust in Peace the best metal album of all time?
megaman: i didn't know it was

carnis: Have you ever thought about playing an Axxion live? I noticed glen used one in NY. Or do you feel the V is more the megadeth-image... what we kinda expect?
megaman: i love the guitar, but glen is my favorite partner for many reasons and i gave them to him.

vman: Hey Dave, hockey question: you still a Coyotes fan, or have ya moved on to the Kings or Ducks since moving back to Cali?
megaman: i love all hockey

coolguy67: Dave, when will the United Abombinations tour be announced?
megaman: we are kinda looking at March of next year.

-blackmail-: would you consider gwar for gigantour?

megaman: very

jeremy1985: hey dave, do you prefer to play indoor or outdoor shows (and why) ?

megaman: i dunno.

RawevillivewaR: How has the tour been up to this point for you?

megaman: no. i am dead. der!

Jaxijin: How's the new album going? I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on it. The System Has Failed was fantastic!!
megaman: the songs are fun to play and the drovers encouraged me to make the set fierce, so they had the same good influence on the record.

verixStar: What are your feelings about the last concert in ARGENTINA ? wE REALLY enjoyed so much and still talking about it. You guys were great, please donĀ?t left 8 years to pass to come again ok?.

Riveting huh? Look at it this way, you guys didn't have to expereince this crap over the course of an hour, while you were actually trying to get your own questions in. And for someone who likes talking to his fans, Dave sure avoids hardball questions!

That's not the case at all. It's not like those were the only fans in the chatroom asking Dave questions. Dave just avoided any of the hardball ones, and really just picked the ones that kissed his ass, even though he tried to act all humble and shit when he answered them.

These were the questions that I sent:

-Hey Dave, I loved the show in Boston, you guys were the best show I've seen live! My question is, rumor has it that you won't play certain songs because of your new found religious beliefs. Not to sound rude, but don't you think its more important to play what the fans want to hear? It's not as if Megadeth songs are all that satanic anyway. (note: this question was sent in by accident)

-Hey Dave, I'm a Sludgeaholic (frequent visitor of MetalSludge.com) and I loved your 20 questions interview with them you did 5 years ago. Ever thought about going back there and doing another one?

-Hey Dave, just so you know, I was the guy in Boston during the photo session back stage who thought it would be funny to do a cunnlingus pose. I was just trying to get a cheap laugh out of everyone, I didn't mean any harm.

-Hey Dave, I heard you decided to bring back Liar. Very nice. Any hope of anything from "Killing Is My Business" coming back to the set (besides Mechanix)?

-Hey Dave, who did you have in mind to headline Gigantour next year?

Now, I understand that Dave didn't have time to answer everyone's questions, but you may notice in that chat certain people got more than one question answered (notably megachic, who thought it would be brilliant to ask 'I'm doing a report on cops' :wtf: ).

But you know what really pissed me off about that chat? Somewhere in there, someone, not even really asked a question, but rather praised Dave for his "little speech" in Canada wherever it was about the school shootings and A Tout Le Monde. Dave's response? "I'm sorry you thought it was a 'little speech.'"

:mad:

Jesus fucking Christ Dave! Have all those drugs over the years incapacitated your ability to act as a human being? I'm starting to sound like a blabbermouth poster. Dave, you're a great guitar player, a pretty decent singer, and a great performer, but for fuck's sake, keep your goddamn mouth shut!
