Former Megadeth guitarist Jeff Young slams Dave Mustaine saying he can “barely play and sing the stuff” from the band’s current setlist.
During a recent interview, Young said the following:
“We haven’t, nor would we care or concern ourselves with any of that. It’s a win-win for all of us, including (Mustaine), ’cause on this Kings of Thrash ‘Best Of The West…Live At The Whisky A Go Go’, who’s getting the publishing on every one of those tunes? Not me or David Ellefson or any of the [other members of] Kings of Thrash. So (Mustaine) is] making the money.”
Regarding on how Megadeth very rarely plays stuff from their first three albums live, Young commented:
“They don’t play those songs because they can’t play those songs; (Mustaine) can’t play ’em or sing ’em. I’m not being a d*ck. It’s just a fact. He can barely play and sing the stuff that they’re doing, the same ten songs every night.”
