During a digital book signing for RUST IN PEACE: The Inside Story of the Megadeth Masterpiece, Mustaine was asked about the song ‘Five Magics.” Instead of explaining his answer, he grabbed his guitar.
Pioneering Megadeth architect Dave Mustaine began the first of three consecutive digital book tour events on September 9th.
Participating in the live signing & discussion with fans for Premiere Collectibles, the event marked the official release of the first-hand retrospective, RUST IN PEACE: The Inside Story of the Megadeth Masterpiece.
Though the book signing made the pivot to an entirely digital gathering, Mustaine made the connection with fans feel especially intimate despite having to make it work remotely.
In between signing books and fielding questions about his music, his influence and his most recent book, a fan inquired about the guitar specifics of the Rust In Peace track, “Five Magics.”
Rather than explain the answer, Mustaine opted to break up the conversation for just a bit to grab his guitar. Plugging in and going conversative with the volume, Mustaine would actually play a portion of the track while fans tuned into the stream.
The impromptu performance would make the fans experience especially memorable and reiterated the lasting impact Mustaine’s music continues to have among generations of followers.
