"Unfortunately, neither of my old drummers are alive for them to compete against my new drummer and have me laugh at them because my new drummer is better than both of them!"On what new MEGADETH drummer Dirk Verbeuren brings to the band:
Mustaine: "The thing that Dirk brings to the band is this uncanny similarity to [late MEGADETH drummer] Gar Samuelson, and that, to me, is the best thing out of all of it. Whether he can play fast or not, he can, and whether he can play metal or not, he can, and whether he can play jazz or not, he totally can. And it's been so long… You know, Nick [Menza, late MEGADETH drummer] was great, but Gar had something Nick didn't. Nick was a metal kind of jazz guy. Gar was… he was an innovator. Dirk, to me, is like the ghost of Gar Samuelson; it's really crazy. And, unfortunately, both those drummers [Gar and Nick], they're no longer with us to have them do a drum-off, so I can say, 'See, I told ya.' But I'm flattered to have been graced with such great drummers in the first place."
Actually, he was always like than, at times even worse.Jesus Christ, Dave. Shut your fucking mouth sometimes. The older he gets the more he starts to just blather on about any retarded, egomaniacal thing he's thinking. He's like metal Trump.
