Difficult to say but he will be the featured soloist for an upcoming program in 2014 for the San Diego Symphony that includes Wagner, Vivaldi and Dvorak

Said an official source for Megadeth: "Dave Mustaine will be a featured soloist with the San Diego Symphony in April, 2014, in a program that will include Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" from "Die Walküre", Vivaldi's "Winter" from "The Four Seasons" and Dvorak's Symphony No. 9 (the "New World" Symphony).

Executive director Edward "Ward" Gill said it's all about reaching new audiences, while music director Jahja Ling said he had a good meeting with Mustaine, and he may conduct the concert himself (no conductor is listed

Just goes to prove that Mustaine not only had the good sense to get away from the highly overrated Metallica, but he likes Wagner also.

And with that feeble excuse, let's have some Megadeth and the rather good "Peace Sells". Analyze your way out of that James Hetfield.
