Megadeth front man Dave Mustaine has issued the following update about the recording of their upcoming album:

"Droogies!

"I am sitting in my office at 5:30ish AM and am typing this as I try to wake up. Yesterday, Andy Sneap went back to the UK for a while, as we are preparing to go out on the Priest Feast Tour. This means effectively that the recording has stopped, until we return in March/April.

"We finished all of the rhythm and bass guitars, as well as the drums being finished for a couple weeks now, and I think I even heard some acoustic layers. The reaction from our management, family, friends (the real critics), and my number one judge and coach Justis, has been pretty positive. Onward, I have a furious next few days of getting ready for the tour, as well as making sure that I am ready for this 'switch' from studio to stage.

"I want to let ya know that we are going to be taken portable recording devices, like we did last time (that seemed to work out just fine), and finish preparing for the last recordings on "Studio Release number 12."

Everyone is done with their basic tracks, and all of the songs have been arranged. Its just a matter of singing with my voice AND my fingers. So, until tomorrow (or later today), Long Live Metal!"

Dave loves to talk/write. All of those love letters that he wrote to Doro really paid off.

\m/ "Legends Never Die" by Doro Pesch \m/

Can't wait for this album to come out.....I predict with the addition of Chris on guitar this one will be VERY good, it will outsell and generally outperform UA , although very good in it's own right.

Blood_Drive: Uhhhh... Dave is still a douche rocket. Was then... Is now. Nobody stereotypes him for his actions in the 80's. It's all about what and who he is now. The BS he pulled on Elefson was absolutely assenine, childish and completely uncalled for. Dave's a fvcking pr!ck!

Haha - post 1 - you took the words right from my mouth. Yes - Dave does LOVE himself!!
Too bad, not everyone is in love with Megadeth now. Elefson and Friedman have my complete respect.
