MEGADETH TO CO-HEADLINE WITH… ROB ZOMBIE?!?

Megadeth and Rob Zombie have announced a co-headlining tour, and besides the fact that both acts are on Roadrunner, that seems to me like a pretty odd match. For one thing, musically, they really don’t have anything in common besides loud guitars. And for another thing, Dave Mustaine and Dave Ellefson are devout Christians now who think people can be healed by the power of prayer (and that gay marriage is wrong — more on that in half an hour), while Zombie presents himself as the very (admittedly very cartoonish) portrait of Evil. I mean, I guess if ‘Deth can tour with Slayer, than touring with a dude whose biggest hit is a song about a vampiric race car is really no big deal. Still, everything about this package seems odd to me. (“That’s what she said.”) I guess the moral of the story is, you’re nothing without your values and beliefs, unless those values and beliefs get in the way of you making money.
