This is probably old news to some die hard metal fans but I guess I’ve been out of the loop. Through searching the internet a stumbled upon the fact that Dave Mustaine, the lead singer of Megedeth became a “born-again” Christian in 2002. In fact on Megedeths latest album he sings (in a very heavy metal way) the 23rd psalm. I though that was pretty cool.
Here’s a quote talking about Dave’s feelings on Satanic bands.
Dave Mustaine was reportedly willing to cancel Megadeth’s Greek dates (to be more specific: wherever Rotting Christ are set to appear as support) due to his known dislike for black/death metal bands that depict religious issues in a negative light…
*Dave Mustaine: Well, if they are on it, I certainly don’t want to kick them off. We will just have to pass and play Greece another time or place. I have informed my management and they know what I feel. *
I would post the link but I’m a little leary to because of the rather unchaste advertising that pops up along the side of the site.
