During a new chat with podcaster Joe Rogan of “The Joe Rogan Experience”, Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine recalled the time he left Metallica and straight found Megadeth.
Tho, the guitarist said that he was bothered by the fact Metallica used his music after his departure from the group.
Regarding this, Mustaine said:
“I think in my mind I went right into Megadeth, but at the time I was still kind of trying to digest everything that took place.
“The thing that bothered me the most was I had all my music, and I left it behind and I said, ‘Don’t use my music.’ And of course, they did. They used it on the first record [1983’s ”Kill ‘Em All”], on the second record [1984’s ”Ride The Lightning”].
”There’s parts of my music on a song on the third record [1986’s ”Master Of Puppets”]. All the solos on the first record are mine, except that they’re just performed by Kirk [Hammett]. And [they’re] close but not the same. And he’s not a bad guitar player.”
