Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Says Metal Tribe Kept Genre Alive

(Classic Rock) Megadeth's Dave Mustaine says the metal community has a "tribe mentality" which helps keep the touring business alive. The frontman says technology could never replace the buzz of going to a concert and connecting with other like-minded fans over a love of music - and says "it's a beautiful thing."

He tells Roppongi Rocks: "For years, I've sat on airplanes flying across the planet, contemplating why we drag piles of gear and people around the world to play concerts. In many ways, it seems so antiquated.

"But, so far, no technology can replace the live human experience of music and people together in a room all rocking out, digging the same music and having fun together. So, we make records for people to enjoy in their cars, living rooms, gyms, on whatever device or means they hear it, so we can take the show on the road to have our little metal summits in each town, bringing us to together as a tribe.

"I think that is what it is really all about. Humans have a 'tribe mentality' as a species, and that's how music connects us - we find like-minded people who rally around a genre, and that becomes our common bond. It's a beautiful thing to see." Read more here.
