MUSTAINE: Praying 'That I Won't Piss As Many People Off This Week As I Did Last Week'

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has posted the following message in the "Forums" section of the band's official web site:

"In the studio yesterday it was time to stoke the old furnace, and actually fire up my amps WITHOUT my guitar tech, the inimitable Willie Gee. I started, much to my amazement, putting together some ideas, and I am really excited about what 2010 holds for me and MEGADETH.

"Thank you to everyone that nominated me, Chris [Broderick], me and Chris, and MEGADETH's new record, 'Endgame', for Guitar World's prestigious Reader's Poll awards.

"I still can't believe I am nominated again for my eight time to win a Grammy. I have had my fingers crossed for a few weeks now.

"I hope to thank you in person for making 2009 such a great year at the Marshall and Dean booths at the 2010 NAMM show. I am going over our plans for the show and we are going to be rolling out some killer new designs for Dean guitars and some brutal new models from Marshall amps, so save some space on yer cameras for these babies.

"This convention is one of the most rewarding parts of the year, when I get to spend time with the companies that stand by me in my career with the equipment I have chosen and I need to sound and perform my best.

"Anyway, I hope everybody had a great Christmas (or whatever you celebrate).

"It's hard to believe that we are already planning next Christmas at my house. Isn't that nuts?

"On a totally unrelated note: I am almost done with [DAMOND HEAD guitarist] Brian Tatler's biography, 'Am I Evil?', and I have to say, if you are a fan of the NWOBHM or are curious about the band that influenced [MEGADETH] and [METALLICA] so much, you owe this to yourself.

"Well, I am off to church to pray that I won't piss as many people off this week as I did last week."
