58:14 Download September 15th, 2020

This conversation is jam packed with some great rock star stories. As the 30th anniversary of Rust In Peace approaches, David takes me back in time to the recording of the landmark album, the hurdles that the band had to over come and TONS more. Find out which rock hero called him and his decision to take his call or his drug dealer’s. He tells me about his relationship with Dave Mustaine through all these years, what guitarists were approached to join the band and more. 

The new book is called Rust In Peace: The Inside Story Of The Megadeth Masterpiece. 

Thanks for listening!
