I did not think Randy Blythe would have a problem with Chris Adler playing drums on the new Megadeth LP, but now, I have confirmation he is cool with it.
Blythe tells the man behind SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal, Jose Mangin, that he is psyched for his Lamb of God brethren.
“Chris is a big Megadeth fan, you know. He’s a huge Megadeth fan,” says Blythe. “So, you know, [Dave] Mustaine, I guess, needed a drummer. And he asked him. And Chris sent us this very typical Chris e-mail, like, ‘Hey, guys, by the way, if Dave needs a drummer, is this gonna bother you? It won’t interfere [with Lamb of God].’ We’re all, like, ‘Go be in Megadeth for a little bit, dude.’”
He continued: “I hope if, like, the Bad Brains or the Sex Pistols called me [and asked me], ‘Hey, do you wanna do something?’ [the other guys in Lamb of God] wouldn’t be, like, ‘No, you can’t do that.’ No, fuck that!”
Randy later said: “I hope he’s having a good time with Dave. I just… I want the stories when he comes back; that’s all I want. That’s all he has to do — is give me some stories. I think he’s having a good time. I think they’re doing… From what I understand, I think he’s having a good time. And I’m happy for him.”
