Megadeth fan pays $5K to write with Dave Mustaine

Posted by on April 30, 2015

As some of you may be aware, Megadeth jumped on the crowdfunding bandwagon to fund their still-untitled fifteenth album via pledgemusic and they are offering the expected conventional perks: signed merch, the new CD, vinyl. There are other self-promoting perks like the books released and signed by David Ellefson and Dave Mustaine, all leading up to the maximum perk of them all: A 2-hour songwriting session with Dave Mustaine himself. which a Megafan just claimed.

That’s right: some wealthy die-hard fan out there pledged $5k to spend some time with Mustaine and learn his ways to write music and become the next Megadeth one day.

Mustaine’s message to Megadeth fans about the campaign: “We’ve always wanted you to be ‘a part of’ and not ‘apart from’ us in the studio. Now, with PledgeMusic, you can be here with me and the guys and watch history being made with our fifteenth record. Check back often… you don’t want to miss anything!”

If you still have faith in Megadeth or expect a solid improvement after the addition of Kiko Loureiro and Chris Adler into their lineup, you can still pledge to their campaign right now, but you’re gonna have to wait for another chance to spend quality time with Dave Mustaine.
