Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine recently made a huge revelation. He revealed that he “peed on the floor” of the White House bathroom. But that transpired three decades ago.
Dave Mustaine recalls the incident
The 60-year-old guitarist/vocalist, who went to the White House in 1992 with the “Rock The Vote” campaign for the Democratic National Convention coverage, made the huge claim while introducing the song “Holy Wars… The Punishment Due” during Megadeth’s concert on Sunday night, April 10) at the Tucson Arena in Tucson, Arizona.
In the video clip, Mustaine said: “I want you guys to know that I’ve lived through a lot of different eras in the United States and seen different things, and one thing that makes me the most proud of everything here in our country is you guys, the way that you are handling yourselves and the way that… as the metal community. There’s a lot of people that go out there and they say things and they totally embarrass themselves. And I want you guys to know how proud I am to represent you.”
He continued: “When I went up to the White House, I was so proud to be able to go up there and say, ‘F**k you. You think we’re stupid? We are not stupid.’ By the way, when I went into the White House, I went into the royal — whatever the fuck it’s called — White House bathroom, and I peed on the floor. I had to. I had to.”
Mustaine often grabs the headlines and it is mostly for his political views. Three years ago, Dave, had attracted a fair amount of media attention over the years for his political thoughts, said that he and other public figures have fallen victim to so-called negative partisanship, in which people identify as being against the opposing political party, and vocalize their beliefs through anger or loathing.
