Dave Mustaine is still hilarious

http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/bla...sitemID=155495
"Joel McIver of U.K.'s Total Guitar magazine caught up with MEGADETH frontman Dave Mustaine to talk about the band's seminal album "Peace Sells… But Who's Buying?", as part of the magazine's thrash special (Total Guitar issue 213 - on sale March 1. Instead they wound up talking about black magic, Catholicism and SLAYER. A couple of excerpts from the chat that weren't used in the article follow below.

Total Guitar: Dave, it's 25 years since the "Peace Sells… But Who's Buying?" album. Any plans to play it live?

Mustaine: Performance wise, "The Conjuring" is one of the heaviest songs on the record, but unfortunately it's got black magic in it and I promised that I wouldn't play it any more, because there's a lot of instructions for hexes in that song. Although it seems kinda corny, anybody who's a Wiccan or a warlock or anything like that will know that all of that stuff is instrumental.

When I got into black magic I put a couple of spells on people when I was a teenager and it haunted me forever, and I've had so much torment. People say, "Goddamn, Dave never gets a break, he's had such a hard life," and I just think, "No, Dave didn't — he got into black magic and it ruined his life." It wasn't that I was a bad guy or that I had a big mouth, it was that I got into witchcraft and black magic and it ruined my life. Fortunately for me, with all the work and the love of my friends, and not giving up with my guitar playing, I got over it. So I look back now and I think, "Hmm, I don't wanna play 'The Conjuring'."

I look at songs like "Black Friday" and I think, "That would be a good song to play, too," but I look at the lyrics, which are about a homicidal madman who goes on a killing spree. Now, the irony of all of this is that I said I wasn't going to play it but we've got the 25-year anniversary coming up and people are saying we have to do this record. And I'm thinking that I can't possibly do that and stay true to myself. But I'm sure where there's a will there's a way.

When I first got saved about 10 years ago, I was really scared and I was basically holding on to anything that I heard in church or whatever, but as I've grown I've learned a lot and lightened up a lot, and I see people around me doing certain things and instead of me saying, "Man, you shouldn't do that!" I think quietly to myself, "Dude, you don't know what you're doing…" It's a huge growth process.

Total Guitar: Tom Araya of SLAYER is a practicing Catholic, and he goes onstage and sings "The Antichrist" every night…

Mustaine: Yeah. Y'know, I really cherish the relationship that I've rebuilt with the guys in SLAYER right now and I'm gonna sidestep that, because I don't know anything about Catholicism and I do know that I am very appreciative of not having any feuds right now, so I'm gonna skip that one, if you don't mind.

Yeah, I read this the other day. Almost as hilarious as his prayer babble after the kidney stones thing.

If Dave wants to be indoctrinated by religion and use that as an excuse for why he doesn't want to play certain songs then fine. But Dave needs to realize that if there is a god, god doesn't give a fuck if you write about black magic or serial killers. God gave us freewill right? Maybe god wanted you to write about this stuff. As long you are not actually killing people no harm is done. It's just a song, black magic and serial killers are interesting topics to write about.
As for black magic spells actually working, anything is possible so I don't know if there is a certain way to do a witchcraft spell and make it work, it could be possible. I doubt it but you never know.

Mustaine should start doing heroin again. It can't make him any more of a dick, but it will hopefully make him shut the fuck up about stuff like this. He should realize that Araya is way more Christ-y then he'll ever be and yet manages to be a couple hundred times more Satanic.

It's not really a "Peace Sells 25th anniversary tour" if Dave decides to not play two of the best songs on the album....

Also, the tom araya thing is so fucking true that it's not even funny. Dave should grow some hair on his balls. Fuckin' pussy.

This = Dodging the question because he knows that by Tom doing that, he has far more integrity than Dave.
