Megadeth’s Mustaine Refuses To Apologize For Slamming Former Guitar Tech

November 2, 2015

Megadeth singer Dave Mustaine has refused to apologize for posting a video slamming his former guitar tech as a “total waste of skin and life” after an apparently less-than-ideal show on October 21 in Brisbane, Australia. Mustaine fired him after the show.

While chatting with fans on Saturday (October 31) via Periscope, Mustaine clarified that his longtime guitar tech Willie Gee was not the tech he was talking about after the Brisbane concert. He explained, “Willie Gee hasn’t worked for me since April, so… I love Willie; we’re still very close friends. He’s just retiring.”

Mustaine went on to describe the events that led to his former tech getting fired. “What happened? The guy lied to me. He gave me a guitar that wasn’t plugged in or turned on two times and unplugged one time, and you know what? That’s just not acceptable. I wish I didn’t say it the way I said it, but I’m not gonna apologize.”

He continued: “But you know what? I forgive him. And I still like the guy. It’s just one of those things. Actually, if I see him again, I’m not gonna hold a grudge and I’ll probably give him a hug and thank him for trying.”

Due to his Lamb Of God schedule, Megadeth drummer Chris Adler wasn’t able to play with Megadeth in China and Japan last month and was temporarily replaced by Tony Laureano, who has worked as MEGADETH’s drum tech since 2011.

Megadeth’s 15th studio album, “Dystopia”, will be released on January 22, 2016.
