There are many things at the root of DISGRASIAN’s distaste for Megadeth, the most important of which being that their classic tune “Hangar 18″ on our favorite pastime Guitar Hero II has generally been a ginormous, finger-cramping pain in our collective ass. Until recently, we’ve simply attributed the ass pain to band leader/singer Dave Mustaine–a guy whose haircut would make a Jerry Springer guest cringe,and has a chip on his shoulder the size of Montana.
I realized today that the real object of our ire should be guitarist Marty Friedman. I actually have no idea how he’s escaped our fire thus far, save for us being lazy (and quite frankly, it’s fun and pretty much the status quo to hate on Mustaine).
Incidentally, I just stumbled upon this clip of Friedman on a Japanese cooking show, displaying an uncanny penchant for the country’s language. Nonetheless, he intermittently stops handling the raw shellfish to pick up his axe and crank out a few licks (doesn’t seem very sanitary), which is, to say the least, weird.
