Dave Mustaine sold a bunch of his gear on Reverb. Then a d-bag flipper bought it all.

    Dave wrote about half of Kill 'Em All and some of Ride The Lightning. There's debate as to his influence on Master of Puppets, but legally it's only 6 tracks off the first two albums.

    Talking about DM being the 80's genius without mentioning Alex Skolnik just seems... wrong.

    Max,you are often a source of objective factual information. However, Mustaine isn’t credited , where he should be, his writing is ALL OVER the first four albums, no debating including master.....any REAL metal player/shredder can hear it/knows it if they listen....

    Is that my opinion, not really, there has been a lot of issues because writing credits appear to have been altered...like Lars wrote music lol What did he write? The off rhythm snares and kicks he played or the ones he programmed/had his “guy” program....like it is what it is...legally 6 tracks. In reality, its much more

    TBH both Lars and Mustaine are professional bullshitters so I wouldn't know who to believe either. :lol:

    I don't doubt this who gets credit type bullshit goes on all the time. I do hear a lot of Mustaine influence, on the older albums, but unless one of them comes out about it, I don't think we can even know for sure other than a strong feeling about it.

    I think all the credit should go to Mr. Whiskey, Ms. Cocaine, and Emperor Heroin.

    Yeah, can't we just get back to the matter at hand? This Behringer-era TC of humanity.

    Yeah, let's get back to talking about the guy who lies about speeding up his guitar playthroughs.

    - I doubt it matters much that Kiko owned a guitar compared to Mustaine. Kiko is a great player and seems like a great person, but I don't think anyone thinks of him when you say the word Megadeth.

    - When I think of the members of Megadeth I will always think Mustaine, Friedman, Ellefson, Menza.

    - I don't think of Kiko, Broderick, or Adler or the other hundred people that have been in the band, though they are all great musicians. A lot of people have been in Megadeth apparently : )

    Probably hits me more because I knew him more from his time in Angra. Still, a Grammy winning guitar is a Grammy winning guitar, regardless of who was in the band at the time.

    And everyone knows Gar had the better drum parts anyway. :lol:

    I think Friedman, Broderick, and then I remember Kiko is the one putting up with MegaDave now.

    Broderick was absolutely terrible. Might as well just set up a Guitar Pro track and save some money.

    What do you mean, he's a really good guitarist. Do you just mean the albums he was on?

    No, I find his playing to be really bland. He is a technically proficient guitarist, but he is very boring. Zero attitude. You can be both proficient and have tons of attitude to your playing as Paul Gilbert can attest to. Broderick's playing is the equivalent of playing a tablature in Guitar Pro. So glad that he and Shawn Drover left.

    - I can understand that. I get what you mean.
    - I really do like the Dystopia album now with Kiko. It was the first thing Megadeth put out in a long time (like since Friedman days) I could get excited about again. It's good stuff.
