Mustaine spoke in depth about what fans of the band are looking for and how certain lineups have and have not been embraced, stating that really from ‘Rust in Peace’ forward, the fans have not always fully accepted the new players. “Playing in a band together with another person, that’s as close as you’ll get to them without having sex with them. I mean you can’t get any closer to a band member. After that James Lomenzo, James McaDonough, Glen Drover, Shawn Drover, Chris Broderick — all those guys, the fans don’t want those guys in Megadeth.”
As for the continual lineup changes, the rocker adds, “The reason that guys have been asked to leave or quit is because they decided to turn one direction and the other three wheels are going in a different direction.”

Mustaine also dished on what’s inspiring him at the moment, adding, “There’s music that I have saved from around ‘Peace Sells’ era, ‘So Far So Good’ era and I listen to it and I’m thinking, ‘How the f— did I play that?’ So I have to put it into a machine and listen and slow it down and scoop out all the noise in the background so I can hear what I was doing cause it’s mind blowing riffing. That is what is exciting for me right now.”
