Megadeth legend Dave Mustaine made a recent interview Ron Keel’s Streets of Rock N’ Roll podcast and revealed that he has got his reputation that he is a right-winger.
Here is his statement:
“And I don’t think us telling everyone who we vote for is necessary or a good idea. You can pretty much tell the kind of people that go certain ways. But I’ve gotta tell you, I’m 57 and I’ve been voting for a long time, and I’ve never seen it like this before, where friendships, families, jobs, careers destroyed over who you pick.
I’ve got this reputation that I’m a right-winger. Well, check my voting record to see that I’ve voted Democrat and Republican. And it’s just a shame that people are trying to destroy people’s careers because of a vote.”
Two years ago, he was asked by a fan on Periscope that if he’s going to vote for Trump. Here is what he said earlier:
“Am I a Donald Trump fan? Well, he’s a very successful businessman. Am I gonna vote for him? That’s none of your business. And if I did, I wouldn’t tell you. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t tell you. I can tell you one thing: I am not voting for Hillary. I am voting for Vic Rattlehead.”
