As you saw on the homepage I conducted an interview for Megadeth Radio with Ron McGovney (original METALLICA bassist) while we were in Asheville, NC this past week. In fact, I've done interviews with our friends in EXODUS and TESTAMENT as well. Those should be airing soon.
"Tune in to hear the SIRIUS 'Liquid Metal' show interview with Dave and I this weekend, too. Our friend Jose Mangin (who conducted the interview posted his video of us testing out his famous tacos he kindly made and brought to us at the Scranton, PA show. Good backstage fun, especially if you were hungry!
"We are in the final week of the RIP North American tour and it has been a total blast to be back playing for you all and meeting so many of you in the meet 'n' greets, as well as the fun I see you all having from the stage. Chat with ya soon..."
