Dave Mustaine talks for why people don’t know him

Dave Mustaine from Megadeth talks about why people don’t know him. His recent interview with U.K. magazine Kerrang! reveals on February 15th.

This interview published in a June 2018 issue of the United Kingdom rock and metal magazine. In this interview Mustaine controversial comments, he made on stage in Singapore in August 2012 about then-President Barack Obama ‘staging’ murders and turning the United States into ‘Nazi America’ and more political issue. Then Mustaine explains his early life before the band, childhood, Metallica, his psychological problems and big four.

Dave Mustaine starts with “How misunderstood do you feel all these years down the line?” question and replied:

“People don’t know me at all. They think they do, but they only know the guy Lars (Ulrich) and James (Hetfield) have been trying to smear for 40 years. They know the guy that usually responds to bad shit being said about them, but do they know me? No. I don’t usually come out and say stuff about people unless I’m provoked… especially nowadays. In the beginning, if someone said something I didn’t like, I may have retaliated in jest, but never seriously. I would never attack anyone without good reason.”

Then Mustaine talks about in August 2012 after making comments on stage in Singapore about then-President Barack Obama “staging” murders and turning your country into “Nazi America” situation:

“I have no regrets. If you weren’t there, you won’t know what happened. We were in Asia and soon discovered that the guy doing our monitors really wasn’t a monitor guy, the first two shows had been disastrous. We got a local guy to help us and it was a fucking mess. Naturally, I threw caution to the wind and we knew we couldn’t take the gig too seriously. That night I had a couple of drinks and I was really just joking with the audience.”
