‘Dave Mustaine’ On His 2020 Presidential Ambitions [Video Interview]


dave_mustaine1In the three-minute clip below, Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine talks to Fuse about running for president and mean tweets.

Asked what the nicest tweet was that he ever got from someone, Mustaine said: “I think it’s all kind of relative, where you’re at in your day. ‘Cause if you’re having a good day and somebody writes something stupid about you, it’s kind of water off your back. If you’re having a bad day and someone writes something stupid about you, it can affect you. If you’re having a bad day and somebody writes something really nice about you, it can totally pull you out of it. But I kind of look at it like that’s up to you on how long that moment’s gonna last — if it’s gonna be a bad moment, a bad minute, a bad hour, a bad day. So, for me, I don’t really put a lot of value in what people say about me. ‘Cause if I did, man, I would be a basket case by now.”

He added: “People like to talk about me; they either talk good or they talk bad, but they talk.

“But I mean, the fun thing, too, is I think a lot of the fans know they can kind of joke around with me a little bit and that I don’t take everything as an offense. Sometimes it kind of pushes the limit a little bit; I don’t think a lot of them would say a lot of the stuff that they say to my face. But some of them would, because it’s [stated in a] tongue-in-cheek [way]. It’s just that sometimes it doesn’t look the same in print.”

Megadeth is touring in support of its new album, “Super Collider”, which is likely to sell between 28,000 and 32,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on June 4 via Mustaine‘s new label,Tradecraft, distributed by Universal Music Enterprises [UMe].

“Super Collider” is Megadeth‘s first release since the band’s recent split with Roadrunner Records.

Megadeth filmed a video for the “Super Collider” title track on May 10 in the Los Angeles area. California-based model, actress, singer and songwriter Hunter Elizabeth was cast in the lead role in the clip, which she says is “about a high-school couple still loving each other after all the years after graduation, and at the 10-year reunion, both characters find themselves successful [a model and a mathematician] and still very in love.”
