Dave Mustaine Accuses Prez Obama of Staging Theater & Temple Shootings

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine recently told a Singapore audience that President Obama is behind the recent movie theater and Sikh temple shootings. “Back in my country, my President...he’s trying to pass a gun ban, so he's staging all of these murders...Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there...and now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple...I don’t know where I’m gonna live if America keeps going the way it’s going because it looks like it’s turning into Nazi America.”

In an interview with Alex Jones, Mustaine elaborated on his dislike of the President. "With all of the proof about his birth certificate being fake, and you see the signs in Kenya that say 'the birthplace of Barack Obama.' Hello? C'mon, guys. How stupid are we right now?"

Mustaine was born September 13, 1961, at Grossmont Hospital in San Diego. His parents split when he was young and his mom raised him as a Jehova's Witness. He left her La Mesa home as a teen.

In 1981, he quit his first band Panic to become Metallica’s original lead guitarist, before getting replaced by Kirk Hammett in 1983. Mustaine moved to Rolling HillsEstates in Fallbrook in late 2004, along with his wife Pamela, their kids, and their horses.

In Summer 2005, Mustaine told KNAC's Philthy Phil that he won't perform certain songs now that he's embraced Christianity. "The ones that I did that I'm not doing anymore that to me are just wrong [include] the Sex Pistols' 'Anarchy,' 'cause it says, 'I'm an anti-Christ.' I'm not really anti anybody, so I had to kind of take a look at that." Regarding his status as the only permanent player in the band he calls Megadeth, Mustaine said, "I think the people are aware; when I left Metallica and came home on a bus, I did not stop off and pick up a bass player. I went home and started it on my own."

Mustaine's Gigantour -- with Megadeth, Dream Theater, and others -- experienced booking problems in 2005. Several venues, including SDSU's Open Air Amphitheatre, couldn't accommodate the show's second stage, and promised bands (such as Symphony X, Dry Kill Logic) couldn't play. Mustaine posted on his website, "We're working on the problems," but the snafu was never explained.

Besides San Diego, fans in San Antonio, Cincinnati, and Boston missed out on a second stage. Billboard's attendance figures indicate that promoters sold 2228 seats of 4598 available for the 2005 tour's San Diego stop.

Gigantour's second edition launched in September, 2006, with Megadeth, Lamb of God, Opeth, Arch Enemy, Overkill, and others sharing the bill. The tour was sponsored by Microsoft's game "Gears of War," the name of a song on Megadeth's subsequent album.

Mustaine filed a petition for divorce in San Diego Superior Court in 2006, seeking dissolution of his marriage to Pamela Anne Casselberry, whom he wed in April 1991 before the couple movied into their $1.2 million house in Fallbrook's Rolling Hills Estates.

The couple had a son in 1992 (Justis David), a daughter in 1998 (Electra Nicole), and another son in 2002 (Victor Gar). Victor Gar was named after Megadeth mascot Vic Rattlehead and former band drummer Gar Samuelsson, who died in 1998. Justis plays guitar and has appeared in several local theatrical productions, including one in which he played Elvis Presley.

Megadeth's DVD Blood in the Water: Live in San Diego, filmed in May 2008 at Cox Arena, premiered on HDNet television in early November '08.

The recording process for Megadeth's twelfth studio album began on January 7, 2009, at the band's own Vic's Garage studio in San Marcos. Released by Roadrunner Records and produced by Andy Sneap (Sabbat), it's the group's first with album guitarist Chris Broderick, who replaced Glen Drover at the end of 2007.
