Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Fires Back At Havok


(Classic Rock) Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine has slammed Havok after they claimed an "unacceptable management contract" had led to them being kicked off an upcoming North American tour.

They announced Wednesday that they wouldn't be on the road with Megadeth, Suicidal Tendencies, Amon Amarth and Metal Church as previously announced, after falling out with Mustaine's son Justis, who'd been looking after their affairs.

Havok said: "The reasons for our absence are directly related to a contract negotiation insisted upon by Mustaine Management. We were offered an unacceptable management contract, which we declined."

In reply to online comments, Dave Mustaine confirmed last night that it had been his decision to drop Havok. He tweeted: "They didn't pay Justis what he's owed, or sign the standard contract. I took care of 'em. Sad."

He added: "They had an industry standard contract, the same I have. Five months later, still wouldn't sign it, until they're dropped. What is there to debate? I gave them more cash, time, merch items, space, lights and sound than their contract said every night. Stupid me!" Read more here.
