From one extreme to another, Dave Mustaine has recently proclaimed that Megadeth will be headed to the studio late this year to work on their 16th record. 16, that’s not a typo. Tool fans be damned. Dystopia still has that new-car scent, and the band is ready to write again.
Mustaine, who is tough to pry a compliment out of, gushed over Dirk’s skills and what they could mean to the new writing process. Said Dave in his interview with No Brown M&Ms,
‘As good as [Chris] Adler was, Dirk’s feet are more advanced and I didn’t think that was possible because Chris is such a great drummer. There’s a reason why Chris recommended Dirk. I love him for that, he’s a really solid friend for making that recommendation. A lot of guys wouldn’t do that, but he’s a true friend. [Dirk] is one of the most pleasant, easy to get along with guys I’ve ever met in my life … I’ve never, ever, ever seen him not smile.’
The thought of Dave, Dave, and Kiko shredding to a blast beat has me losing my mind. Rest assured, we will cover every inch of this story as it unfolds.
