Megadeth Guitarist Didn't Play During Audition (A Top Story)


On Wednesday Megadeth Guitarist Didn't Play During Audition was a top rock story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Megadeth guitarist Kiko Loureiro has recalled how his audition for Dave Mustaine didn't include playing his instrument. The Angra member was recruited last year following the departure of Chris Broderick, and he appears on 15th album Dystopia alongside guest drummer Chris Adler from Lamb Of God.

Loureiro tells WSOU: "People are always asking, 'How is it to work with Mustaine?' He has this reputation because sometimes he says stuff that people don't agree with. But to be honest, Dave, he's just a super gentleman.

"When I met him the first time, when I was kind of auditioning, we just hung for a day in Nashville. He was showing me Nashville - we had lunch, we had coffee, beer at night.

"I hung with him the whole day. I didn't play at all for my, let's say, audition. I discovered a very sharp guy, very intelligent. He's very into politics, he's very sharp in the music business in general, and he's a gentleman." Read more - here.
