The combination of Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine and Guns N’ Roses legend Slash would seem to be a potent guitar force, at least on paper. In our recent interview with Slash, we asked him about his jam session with Mustaine in the ’80s, which he wrote about in his autobiography. We wondered if there is any potential for a future collaboration. “I don’t see myself guesting on a Megadeth song. I don’t think it would work in the context of what Megadeth does,” he admitted, adding, “but maybe Dave on one of my things — I don’t know.” Mustaine, however, couldn’t disagree more.
“Slash is a terrific talent and I disagree wholeheartedly with what he said: that he couldn’t play on a Megadeth record. He’s a brilliant guitar player,” Mustaine told us today (Aug. 28). He explained, “I basically play in the pentatonic scale and that’s like the go-to blues player scale” and mentioned that he’s tried to surround himself with “really, really good players” over the years.
