Rock Cellar Magazine: When you’re not on the clock as “Dave Mustaine of Megadeth,” what do you do for fun? Any specific hobbies?
Dave Mustaine: We’ve really been blessed with our business with Megadeth. We’ve got a huge fan club, and with our social networking and site, it’s great. Believe it or not — I know this is probably gonna be hard to believe, but on October 31, 1994, we opened up “Megadeth Arizona.” It was the first band web site ever. I’m not saying I invented the Internet like Al Gore does — which is fucking ridiculous — but we were the first band to ever have a web site on the Internet. In fact, Gene Simmons even said, “I want a web site just like Dave’s!” and I was pretty flattered about that. Because, you know, say what you will about Gene, but he’s a very smart businessman. Plus, looking at where we’re going right now, and with my free time, I’m constantly trying to keep Megadeth on the cutting edge of stuff.
