Megadeth Were Advised To Change Logo And Grow Beards: Week in Review


.
On Friday Megadeth Were Advised To Change Logo And Grow Beards was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Dave Mustaine says Megadeth were advised to grow beards and change their logo in the past - but insists he always had the final say on the band's direction.

The frontman admits they took advice on revamping their image following the success of their 1992 album Countdown To Extinction - but says that it didn't work for them.

Asked what changes bosses suggested for Megadeth, Mustaine tells Bonfire: "It basically started after Countdown To Extinction where the logo changed, our look changed. We were supposed to start growing facial hair, and we were told, 'Take the points off your 'M' letters on your logo, get rid of your mascot and stuff.' And we were, like, 'Really?'

"You've gotta remember, Countdown came in at No.2 on the Billboard chart, so we thought, 'Wow! This feels great. Now we're starting to get some direction. This is how you'll be great. You listen to people who have some credibility.' And we did, but it didn't work. And you don't realize that people that have credibility aren't always right." Read more - here.
