Jeff Young, the former guitarist for Megadeth, has posted another blog which is highly critical of his former bandmate Dave Mustaine. His latest blog reads as follows:
"Hello again Mega fans,
"Firstly, I want to thank everyone for their overwhelming support regarding my Blog post of 10.18.09. I didn't expect that and it means a lot.
"I honestly didn't think I would be writing again so soon but in the wake of all the online chatter flailing about, some new info has come to light and there is absolutely no way I'm not responding to this...
"This recent information was forwarded to my personal assistant by a concerned & disgruntled MEGADETH fan:
"In an October 2009 interview regarding MEGADETH's new CD, Shitstaine is at it again with his usual trademark spew of lies. Falsely claiming credit for singing me the solos that I wrote or improvised on the spot is one thing but his latest stunt is the last & final straw. Over the years I've sought to take the high road, tried to have a little class. But peace sells and who's buying, right? Now, my vow of silence and days protecting all Shitstaine's dirty little secrets are over.
"Shitstaine's October 2009 Endgame Interview:
"Better late than never, no doubt Australian fans are pumped to see an updated version of the Clash Of The Titans tour finally making its way down here.
“Well, I’ve always respected the audience down there. It was unfortunate when we had to cancel before but that wasn’t my doing. That was the other band members. Y’know, Jeff Young had a little heroin problem and he ran out. So, he didn’t want to go down there. Now, any time that I ran out of anything, I either found more or I just kinda roughed it!”
"Really Dave, you lying piece of shit!!?? You've always respected the audience? Is that why every single night you had to be carried off stage cause you were too fucked up to stand - let alone play or sing. Were you really too fucked up to realize that Jr., Chuck and I had a deal with the sound man to bury your guitars and vocal in the mix?
"Do you consider it respectful when a fan asks you for a guitar pick, that you pick your stinking nose and flick it at them with a, "There's your pick" response? Sid Vicious really had nothing on you - your fans truly ARE the lucky ones!
"So, we canceled the Australian tour because I ran out of heroin!? Let's get the REAL truth out there buddy. We canceled the Australia tour for one reason: So you could get back to L.A. quick-like and into one of how many failed attempts at rehab? Then, while you are in rehab, you try to get me and the other members to smuggle heroin into the rehab in a Coke can!? WTF?
"In your futile attempt to pin your crap on an innocent party - let alone a cancer survivor that is seeking to live a stress-free lifestyle, you've shown yourself to be the most pathetic piece of human waste imaginable.
"The few little bits I've shared to date are just tip of the iceberg - the measly stuff. If the fool wants to keep going, I now sit at the ready to respond in like to his banal verbal attacks. But the forthcoming details left to be shared won't be so pretty.
"Of course, there is another option. You wanna act like children? We can act like children. You think you're so fucking great? God's gift to guitar virtuosity? How 'bout this: I barely play electric guitar anymore but I hereby challenge you to a duel, Sir: Any stage, anywhere in the world, any 2 MEGADETH tunes from the PSBWB or SFSGSW era. Let's see what's what brother. I'll play my solos, Chris' solos AND your solos note-for-note and you have to do the same. Since you sang all of our solos to us, that should be an easy task for you, right?
"Are you ready to shut up and put your skills where your big fat overrated mouth is? One condition: You can't get anyone to help you figure out Chris or my solos - you have to do it by ear, just as I did/will. Finally, there will be no hiding behind other people's talent for you. Maybe, Eddie Trunk will even let us do it on That Metal Show so everyone can see what's real? Eddie, call me! ;)"
