    Hahaha!
    One thing is for sure. Marty's signature guitar is way cooler than Dave's.

    I'd pay Marty more to play a guitar too. Dave's good and he's got high exposure when on tour but I'd reckon Marty is worth more as a brand ambassador.

    The problem is Dave still gets advertising value out of Marty because stupid sites like Blabber keep referring to him as ex-Megadeth Marty.

    I’ve never seen him even come close to using a guitar like that. Not
    Metal.

    To be fair that is a give away so it may not be one he plays, but you're right we've never seen him play that sort of guitar.

    Here's a new video from Menza Nation. It's the same show as the Peace Sells video you posted the other day. Given the shirts on and shirts off videos it seems to suggest the entire show is out there waiting to be published.

    Man Nick himself is cooler than a lot of bands.
    I hope the whole thing gets released. I'd buy that.

    Haha yeah I agree.
    At the time Megadeth were untouchable, they were at a height no other bands could touch and a very large reason for that was Nick and Marty.

    I assume the doco is going to be released to DVD as well as the cinema.

    Yeah for sure. That was a monster of a line up. They just owned wherever they were.

    I see Blubber has a story today with Jnr about the failed reunion in 2016. Good too see they've changed topics and aren't talking about Jnr being an employee but shit even talk about the reunion is old and boring now.

    It's already a little bit of a different answer.

    Yeah it seems Jnr and Dave remember it differently to Marty and Nick. The one thing that does seem to come up from each party though is that Marty wouldn't take a pay cut, and fair enough too.

    I think it's even a bit different from what Jnr said before.
    Indeed. Marty worked hard for it.

    From what I read Nick was the one pushing hard, but he was also the middle man and everything Nick did to talk Marty in it was undone when Dave decided Marty shouldn't have included his accountant or lawyer.

    Figures. I really think Dave was a bit short sighted. IF, he really wanted it to happen. I think the money was there for sure.

    I'm sure the money was there (and Nick's breakdown of a Megadeth gig pretty much proves that) but like people keep saying it's Dave's band and Dave's rules.
    I'm in two minds about Marty bringing his lawyer (or whoever) to the dinner, I understand he wanted to make sure his butt was contractually protected but at the same time I understand that it was suppose to be a friendly dinner with 4 mates. What I don't understand is why it had to be made such a deal of. To me it sounds a bit like Marty and Dave were not ready to share a stage no matter who wanted it to happen.

    I don't think we'll ever know.

    I'm just going to believe Nick since his story is pretty close to what Marty says. :)

    And neither really have that rep of flip flopping.
