    Dave Mustaine is intense. His band Megadeth pairs oppositional forces -- aggressive, machine-gun rhythms with near-pop melodies -- and similarly Mustaine's personality seems a yin-yang contradiction of simmering rage and family values.
    On the road with the fourth Gigantour, which hits Gibson Amphitheatre tomorrow, February 24, Mustaine remains characteristically outspoken about, well, pretty much everything. Topics discussed include Rick Santorum and birth control in Africa.
    How's the tour going?
    Fabulous. Best Gigantour yet...The talent, I believe, has just congealed into this really great package.
    Last night, somebody came into our dressing room, and he says to us, "I've been coming here for years, and that's the quietest I've ever heard anybody mix a band, but you could hear every single note you guys played." And I felt like saying, "Well, duh, we're going on after Motörhead, who plays very, very, very loud." We're a finesse band. We don't need volume to make our point...
    I just love my freedom out here right now. It's so neat. My wife's been out here with me the whole time. We've just been having fun watching TV -- watching cooking shows and crap. And watching those dudes that bust open storage lockers...Wish my whole family was out here, but one of them's in school, and the other one works now. [My son] Justis actually has two jobs and goes to college now. That's a great thing to hear as a dad when you've got a 20-year-old. Instead of, "Yeah, Dad, I just pierced my eye, and I have an STD, and I've got a record now at the police station."
    Said the former hell-raiser.
    Yeah, but as bad as I was, I'm able to share that with Justis...Instead of saying, "Don't do this," say, "This is what I did, and this is what happened, and here's an alternative to do for that."
    There's so many houses without a dad that it's just terrible. I mean, you know how they used to say there should be a license to have a baby? Well, as far-fetched as that sounds, I really think that, if the parents aren't going to stick together, they shouldn't make that kind of commitment to life. I watch some of these shows from over in Africa, and you've got starving women with six kids. Well, how about, you know, put a plug in it? It's like, you shouldn't be having children if you can't feed them.
    You're very open about your Christian faith. Often, that seems like a topic that's off-limits in everyday conversation.
    Yeah, that's because most people don't really have a belief. They kind of are wading in the kiddie pool. I don't push it on anybody. I never have. I think that's one of the reasons that people don't mind talking to me about it.
    Even if you don't believe in God and you don't believe in faith, you've got to understand, when Israel became a country again, that was a prophecy in the Bible that came true, and the Bible was written so many hundreds of years ago. Also, any of the stuff that it says in there about the end times -- that stuff's really happening right now. Look what's happening over in the Middle East. It's crazy.
    You seem to have embraced the idea of Megadeth being a political band. What are your thoughts on the upcoming Presidential election?
    I wouldn't vote for Obama. I didn't vote for him last time, thank God, so I have no responsibility for this disaster that's happening to our country. And watching the primaries with the Republicans, I think probably the classiest guy out of all of them is Rick Santorum.

    I didn't know who Rick Santorum was, and I kind of thought he was the quiet guy, but he was just kind of waiting his turn. And when he did talk, he was very eloquent. I think the thing that sold me on him was when he opted to miss something to go back and be with his daughter, who was very sick. That showed me that family is so important to him, and it showed his integrity. So, that's the guy that -- if he makes it -- that's the guy I want to vote for.
    [Editor's Note: Subsequent to this interview, Mustaine clarified that he has not endorsed any Presidential candidate.]

    I have a feeling that Megadeth is going to be the next victim of a media lynching.

    I truly believe that African women would put a plug in it, if they could. Hasn't that happened all over the world when women have gotten educated? Birthrates fall. I don't think African women are any different. No one wants to have six kids and watch half of them die.

    'African' encompasses alot, but if you're talking typical 'african', as in sub saharan, 70 IQ, cannibals on weekends. How do you expect to 'educate' such extremely primitive people? You can't, your western devil notions of birth control and so on is voodoo to them, white man's fancy voodoo.

    Oh but they are so very different. Spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, they might as well be from a different planet.

    It's most probably an evolutionary strategy. Living in africa is dangerous, many kids won't make it to adulthood because they're killed by man eating beasts, contract some horrible jungle disease, end up as dinner for the tribe across the river, die in a famine, could be hacked or bludgeoned to death by a machete or a stick, AIDS, the list can go on forever.

    Oh knock it off. Cannibals on the weekend, yes, that's why we hear of widespread cannibalism every time there is a famine in Africa (which is twice a year or so). As long as they don't turn to Catholicism contraceptives will work down there as well. It's all about money though. If you don't have money to buy food, you're not going to buy birthcontrol pills..

    Wrong.
    Not everything is about money, silly woman. They don't need or want your white man's 'medicine'(:jew:).

    The men might not care for it, but the opinion of men matters little when it comes to pregnancy and childbirth. Now be quiet.

    Here, condoms are supplied free of charge at every state hospital and clinic. The majority of black women I've spoken to say their men refuse to wear them. I'm not sure if they supply birth control pills as well, but you are right. They would buy food first before contraceptives.
