Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine answered a fan’s question on Twitter. He has revealed the legendary rock star he calls “godfather”.
A fan named Tim Kendel wrote:
“I think Dave Mustaine used Living Years in his wedding at some point. If I recall correctly from his book. @davemustaine”
“Tim, I didn’t “use it”, but you are very close! 👍
That was the first song playing on the radio after Pamela became my wife and best friend for life.”
Then, Tim asked a question again and said:
“I do not mind being corrected by Dave. Especially when I was kind of close with my information. Plus, I read his book about ten years ago. Almost tweeted about his relationship with Alice Cooper but I am having trouble recalling if he is a Godfather, or sponsor for Dave.”
Back in February 2017, Metallica frontman James Hetfield talked with Newsweek and said that Lemmy Kilmister is Godfather of heavy metal. He said:
“Lemmy in particular was an icon, sort of a godfather for people who love heavy metal. He was the captain of the ship.”
