Dirk Verbeuren ensimmäisestä vuodestaan Megadethissa: ”Hauskaa on ollut!”

Soilworkista Megadethiin reilu vuosi sitten siirtynyt rumpali Dirk Verbeuren on antanut hiljattain haastattelun Roppongi Rocksille, jossa Dirkiltä on kyselty hieman viimeisestä vuodestaan Megadethin uutena rumpalina. Dirk on haastattelussa todennut olevansa varsin iloinen pestistään bändissä ja miehen mukaan soittaminen oman lapsuuden ajan suosikkiyhtyeen riveissä on ollut hauskaa.

”It’s been a lot of fun. It’s been, obviously, an unexpected change but a great experience. Like many people who are in this kind of music, I grew up listening to MEGADETH, so now to be a part of MEGADETH is still kind of unreal at times! Sometimes I’m on stage and I am, like, ’This is really happening!’ [Laughs].”

Kysyttäessä joko Dirk tietää saako hän osallistua tulevan albumin kappaleiden kirjoittamiseen kertoi mies aiheesta seuraavaa:

”I don’t know. Obviously I haven’t been in that spot, so I haven’t experienced that. We’ll see how it goes. I’m definitely open to anything. I’ve started recording some ideas, you know, just having stuff in my phone. I look forward to spending time with the guys working on ideas. Obviously, a lot of it is centered around Dave [Mustaine, MEGADETH mainman]. He’s been the main songwriter for the whole time, pretty much. From there, we’ll see how it goes. It’s good that I have this period of time, unlike Chris [Adler] who came in and it was pretty much straight to recording. I think that’s difficult, because you have certain ways of doing things and then all of a sudden there is this band with this whole past. That’s quick adaption. That can be tricky. Whereas with me, I’m probably going to spend at least two years, if not more, playing the songs live. That gives me some time to see the different areas of the band, see the different styles. For example, Gar has a very different style than Jimmy, than Nick, than Shawn and Chris and all the different people. And Chuck! Great drummer too. Actually, I met him. He came to one of our shows last year, on the U.S. tour. Super-cool guy. That gives me a chance to take that information in and all these different grooves. Then when it is time to create something, I will definitely tap into that. Because it is a very different way of playing for me than, obviously, SOILWORK or any other stuff I’ve done.”
