Megadeth Reveal New Photo of Dave Mustaine Rehearsing With His Band Ahead of Tour

Megadeth have revealed the first new photo of frontman/guitarist Dave Mustaine rehearsing with the band ahead of their 2020 European tour supporting Five Finger Death Punch (how does that make sense?). The first show will take place on January 20th with Five Finger Death Punch already started playing shows in the New Year in Russia and Ukraine.

Mustaine has been doing well following his battle with throat cancer over the past year or so. He told Rolling Stone in November of 2019 he wouldn’t let the cancer beat him and it’s great to see him back about to hit the road.

Also on tour will be the band Bad Wolves. See the photo below along with a list of tour date for Megadeth.

Judas Priest Gets Snubbed a Second Time From the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

This year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees was announced this morning. 

Of course metal got shafted again including Judas Priest who got snubbed for the second year in a row and this caught the attention of the band’s guitarist Richie Faulkner who gave his thoughts online.

One fan tweeted to Faulkner

 “Wait. Depeche Mode, Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails and Biggie Smalls BEFORE Judas Priest in Rock Hall 2020? How do I explain this to my child if I don’t understand it?,”

Faulkner responded,

“Doesn’t make sense does it Kenny? Hence why the rock hall holds no credibility for me and never has RHRF DOTF.”

Another person tweeted,

“Rock Hall is a joke Richie. It’s an absolute sham. 50 years of heavy metal is proof enough,”

Faulkner replied,

“I’ve said it before but 50 years in and still making music, touring the globe to the best fans in the world is the biggest accolade I can think of. These institutions are founded on what these guys helped create and to not be included is a total joke. I have spoken haha RHRF DOTF”

story continued below….

“There’s always a tinge of controversy about the Hall, but the fact that Priest is here again speaks volumes about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame respecting heavy metal music, especially British heavy metal music. I’m so thrilled to be in esteemed company because both of those bands have their roots back in the U.K. We’re very big friends of Scott Gorham from Thin Lizzy and equally with Phil (Taylor) and Mikkey (Dee) from Motorhead. It’s just an extra, extra feeling to know that we’re surrounded by our great friends in the music world.” Thin Lizzy and Motorhead were also absent from the 2020 induction class.
