(Classic Rock) Dave Mustaine says he thinks that "the world is a beautiful place." The Megadeth frontman has garnered a reputation for being one of the most divisive personalities in metal - but he says that many people falsely assume that he has a negative view of society

He tells KBAD 94.5: "A lot of people think I have a very negative view of the world. I think the world's a beautiful place, but that there are bad people here, instead of some other people who are very pessimistic and think the world's a bad place and that there's only a few good people left.

"I try and go through my day, my job, my travels and just make people as happy as I possibly can. I'm not here to say, 'Oh, the world's gonna end,' and all this kind of stuff."

While he denies that their latest album Dystopia is the band's commentary on current US affairs, he admits they use their music to educate fans. He adds: "Part of the problem with people is they listen to what I say and they think I'm making a judgement. And what I'm doing is saying, 'Look, here's a situation. Find out for yourself. Get your own truth.' Read more and watch the full interview here.
