But even the "new" Dave Mustaine doesn't always play nice. Asked to respond to the perennial rumor that he might reunite with Metallica, Mustaine groans, "Do I have to?" When pressed, he simply says, "I have no idea."
Mustaine would rather discuss more philosophical matters, such as the expected life span of his band. Someday, he says, Megadeth will end.
"I think that's part of the whole integrity thing," he states. "That goes along with being who I am. I wouldn't say 'Oh man, you know, we're gonna go forever!' If it's not fun, we're stopping."
He continues, "Y'know, there's a lot of bands out there. I think that Ozzy is a really unbelievable frontman. I think Iron Maiden is a fantastic live band. I think the Stones have an incredible live show, and I think U2 is probably one of the best rock bands playing in the live arena. But when I get to their age, if I can't compete at that level, I'm outta here. If I have to start wearing Depends, see ya."
Megadeth performs with Coal Chamber and Life of Agony at 7 p.m. on Sunday, March 29 at the Theater, 3339 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-565-5522.
