A GOOD EXCUSE TO POST MEGADETH’S “SWEATING BULLETS” VIDEO
We’re pretty late on reporting this, but in case you haven’t heard, Megadeth main man Dave Mustaine has written an autobiography. It’s called Hello Me… Meet the Real Me, is supposed to come out in late 2010, and will actually be written by a dude named Joe Layden (Because rock stars never actually write their own shit. Except for the MetalSucks columnists like Dallas, Eyal, etc. But those dudes aren’t really “rock stars” I guess, so they still have some brains left.).
The clever title – which, in case you’re a total moron, is a lyric from “Sweating Bullets” – immediately made me giggle. Because while I think Mustaine is a brilliant musician, I don’t think he’s a very sincere dude, and I have a hard time believing that the book will actually tell us much about the “real” Dave Mustaine. Or, at least, the actual text won’t – there will probably be all sorts of fun Freudian deductions to made from reading between the lines. Still, there might be some good gossip in there somewhere. I definitely plan to buy a copy.
ANYWAY, here’s the video for “Sweating Bullets.” Side note: it was directed by Wayne Isham, who also directed 99% of all Metallica videos ever made. Hm.
