Dave Mustaine is not slowing down anytime quickly. In a current interview with The SDR Show, the 62-year-old rocker laid out a daring imaginative and prescient for the band’s future, predicting a number of extra Megadeth albums earlier than he hangs up his guitar for good.
Mustaine‘s plan is formidable. He sees no less than three extra Megadeth albums within the pipeline, every with a two-year turnaround. This places him within the studio till 2031, by which level he’ll be 70. However that is not the top of the street.
“I used to be speaking about that the opposite day. If it takes two years between an album — let’s simply say it does, if I will put them out quick — it will most likely be three years, however let’s simply say it is two years. And I put an album out. We have nonetheless bought a couple of 12 months left on this one, no less than. In order that’ll take us into ’25. We have all types of anniversary excursions that we’re planning proper now. Rust In Peace is gonna be 25 years previous, I feel, or 30 years previous subsequent 12 months, and all types of shit like that. After which if we prepare to enter the studio, let’s simply say it takes a 12 months to do this. That is ’26. One other two years, that is ’27, ’28. After which we return into the studio. Once more, we do two extra information. I will be 70 by the point ’31 comes round now.” Mustaine defined.
Mustaine appears to be betting not solely on his relentless spirit and dedication to his craft but in addition “all of the loopy new developments” in trendy medication, together with a touch in the direction of the controversial “medbeds” expertise. Whether or not or not you subscribe to the specifics, Mustaine’s optimism is simple.
“Now, do I feel I will be capable of proceed making music? Due to the development of contemporary medication proper now — stuff like medbeds, and all the loopy new developments that they’ve made for individuals with totally different continual diseases, me with continual ache and with most cancers… It is in remission. I do not act like, ‘Oh, poor me.’ ‘Trigger it isn’t ‘poor me’, man. I received. I fucking received. I beat most cancers, and I am gonna hold preventing to maintain it outdoors the door,” Mustaine continued.
“Say I do three information, and that is 9 years. It is gonna be some time from now. I am realistically pondering, what sort of form am I gonna be in my 70s? And I’ve gotta let you know, I really feel actually good proper now. I am nonetheless rolling and nonetheless coaching and nonetheless doing my cardio and consuming effectively, hardly consuming in any respect and simply taking actually excellent care of myself. So I feel, except one thing actually fallacious occurs, I see myself residing until I am in my 80s or possibly 90s, if I am fortunate.”
So, will Dave Mustaine be rocking out in his 80s? Solely time will inform, however contemplating the person’s unwavering dedication to his band, I would say let’s buckle up for a wild trip.
