Megadethin Dave Mustaine toivoisi joskus pääsevänsä Rock And Rollin Hall Of Fameen

davemustaineiconswine_638Yhdysvaltalainen thrash metal -legenda Megadeth julkaisee ”Dystopia” -nimisen albuminsa tammikuun 22. päivä Universal Musicin kautta. Yhtyeen kitaristi / vokalisti Dave Mustaine on antanut hiljattain albumiin liittyen haastattelun Noiseylle, jossa mieheltä on kysytty halusta joskus voittaa Grammy Awardsissa palkinto. Megadeth on ollut ehdolla useasti mutta ei ole koskaan onnistunut voittamaan Grammya. Dave kertoi haastattelussa, että häntä ei harmita vaikka yhtye ei koskaan Grammya saisikaan mutta Rock And Rollin Hall Of Fameen hän haluaisi joskus saada nimensä.

”The thing is, in the beginning, the Grammy thing was really important to us. Then, we started to see that it wasn’t really as easy as somebody would think, because the people that are on the board, they’ve gotta listen to 45 Latin records and a bunch of Hawaiian stuff and then WEIRD AL YANKOVICH kinds of records, and so when it comes time to listen to metal, they just go, ’Oh fuck, I ain’t listening to that. What’s the name that I recognize there?’ And that’s why they saw JETHRO TULL and went, ’Okay, give JETHRO TULL the metal award.’

”There’s been some bad ones. But I’m cool with it. If I get the Grammy or if I don’t get the Grammy, I’ve been recognized by my peers a lot. I’ve been nominated almost a dozen times, so at the end of the day, it’s, like, are you satisfied with what you have? And I’m — let’s say this — I’m content. I’m not satisfied. I’m not giving up yet.”

”I’m hoping that I’ll be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, too, but, you know, if they don’t want me in there, it’s okay. I mean, I am in there vis-à-vis METALLICA, and no matter what those guys say or what anybody believes about their induction ceremony, they wouldn’t have been there if it wasn’t for me being in the band, because I was there in the beginning, so I have some satisfaction.”
