Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine had a recent interview with “Appetite for Distortion” podcast and revealed that calling a ‘god’ makes him feel uncomfortable.
He also admitted that Black Label Society founder Zakkk Whylde is so much better musician than him.
Here is what he said:
“I don’t fancy being called a god. That makes me uncomfortable, ’cause I’m just a guy. But I love my job, and I take pride at being good at it. But I also know that there’s guys that are so much better than me… Zakk Wylde, for example.
Zakk‘s an amazing guitar player. But then, who else is there? Eric Johnson – one of my personal favorites. And Joe Satriani, one of the best in the world. And Dweezil Zappa, who is probably, to me, the biggest surprise… A great guitar player and a sweetheart of a guy. He’s been helping me with my sound.
I went to the show the other day, and Dweezil is working on my amp and Eric Johnson is playing my guitar, and I’m thinking, ‘Man, I died and went to heaven. Look at this.”
