Megadeth's Mustaine Was Forced To Change His Approach


(Classic Rock) Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine says he was forced to change his approach to playing after the recruitment of new guitarist Kiko Louriero and drummer Dirk Verbeuren.

He believes he's become a better performer as a result - and reveals that it's allowed the band to bring back some songs they'd had to stop delivering on tour.

The veteran frontman has changed the habit of a lifetime by warming up before he goes out on stage, after being impressed by his colleagues' energy and ability.

Mustaine tells 102.9 The Hog: "These guys are the best at what they do in the business. It's really made me re-evaluate my playing. Usually I would not warm up, because I know what I'm doing. Seeing them now, they're just so fierce, it makes me want to be the best I can be at what I do.

"Even if I am self-taught, even if it's something I was just born with, I want to be the best I can." Read more and listen to the full interview here.
