MEGADETH Joined By DAVE MUSTAINE's Daughter ELECTRA For 'À Tout Le Monde' Performance In Paris (Video)

MEGADETH Joined By DAVE MUSTAINE's Daughter ELECTRA For 'À Tout Le Monde' Performance In Paris (Video)

Electra Mustaine, the 21-year-old daughter of MEGADETH frontman Dave Mustaine, joined the band on stage earlier tonight (Tuesday, January 28) Le Zénith in Paris, France to sing a duet with her father on the classic MEGADETH song “À Tout Le Monde”. Fan-filmed video footage of her appearance can be seen below.

Back in 2013, then 15-year-old Electra, who is an aspiring singer, performed her version of “À Tout Le Monde” with Jason Kertson, the grandson of Rob Lind, a member of THE SONICS, at several live appearances, including on King 5‘s “New Day” TV show.

MEGADETH is currently on the road in Europe as the support act for FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH. The trek kicked off on January 20 in Helsinki, Finland and will conclude on February 22 in Sofia, Bulgaria. The Helsinki concert was MEGADETH‘s first since Dave Mustaine was diagnosed with throat cancer and its first live appearance in 15 months.

The 58-year-old MEGADETH leader revealed his cancer diagnosis last June on social media. Five months later, he gave an interview to Rolling Stone in which he said that he wasn’t officially in remission but that he had finished the necessary treatment and had started rehabilitation. He also credited his faith for getting him through the ordeal.

MEGADETH has been working on its 16th album, which bassist David Ellefson said is due out early next year.

SLIPKNOT's COREY TAYLOR On His Sobriety: 'When I Decide To Quit Something, That's It'

SLIPKNOT's COREY TAYLOR On His Sobriety: 'When I Decide To Quit Something, That's It'

In a brand new interview with BBC Radio 6 Music presenter Mary Anne Hobbs, SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor spoke about his long history of drug use and eventual recovery. He said: “You get to the point where you realize that what you do means so much to you that you wanna do it at the absolute top of your game. And you know me — I’m a nut, so if I’m going all the way, I’m gonna go all the way and above and beyond.

“I’ve struggled with drinking for a long time, especially with having that kind of addictive personality side to me,” he continued. “But at the same time, I’ve also had this weird switch where when I decide to quit something, that’s it. And this year is ten years for me. And then I quit smoking, which I never thought I would do. And that was just as difficult, if not worse. But then you get to the point where you start going, ‘Okay, we’re done quitting things. What can we do to improve ourselves?’ So I started really looking at the way I eat and the way I take care of myself. I started training again and really trying to get physically fit to the point where if I went on stage, I knew that I could do the best show that I’ve done in twenty years. And that became part of just keeping this thing alive.”

Two years ago, Taylor, who tried to commit suicide in 2003 by attempting to jump off a hotel balcony while struggling with alcoholism, was honored with the “Icon” award at Rock To Recovery‘s second annual awareness event and benefit. In his acceptance speech, the singer said: “I had my first drink when I was five years old, did my first drug when I was eleven, and it was just all fucked up from there. I lost a lot of friends.”

During a 2016 appearance on the “Meet Your Heroes” SiriusXM radio show, Taylor said that his personality turned “vicious” and he had a “dark attitude” while drunk. He added: “To this day, there are still a lot of friends of mine who are, like, ‘If you ever fall off the wagon, don’t call me.’ So I know it’s in me, and I think that’s the difference between me and a lot of other people is the fact that I can at least admit it.”

He continued: “I just let booze get in the way for a while and then I kind of pulled myself out of it. I feel like I’m doing my best work now, to be honest.”

SLIPKNOT is continuing to tour in support of its latest album, “We Are Not Your Kind”, which was released in August via Roadrunner.

PANTERA Surpasses 1 Billion Streams

PANTERA Surpasses 1 Billion Streams

PANTERA‘s social media manager has shared a graphic indicating that the band has surpassed one billion streams across Amazon, Apple, Deezer, Google and Spotify. An accompanying caption reads: “Thank you all for listening!”

Drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott and his brother, guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, formed PANTERA in the mid-eighties in Texas. The band recorded four independent albums before its 1990 major label debut, “Cowboys From Hell”, introduced a heavier sound and made them a favorite with metal fans. 1994’s “Far Beyond Driven” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 without benefit of a commercial hit single.

When PANTERA broke up in the early 2000s due to tensions between the Abbotts and singer Philip Anselmo, the brothers started a new band called DAMAGEPLAN. But that came to an end on December 8, 2004, when Darrell Abbott was shot dead onstage at the age of 38 by a deranged gunman as the band performed at the Alrosa Villa nightclub in Columbus, Ohio. Vinnie never spoke with Anselmo again after his brother’s death, reportedly feeling that some things Anselmo said about Darrell in the press may have set the killer off.

A few years ago, bassist Rex Brown spoke to the “Do You Know Jack?” radio show about PANTERA‘s commercial success following the release of “Cowboys From Hell”. He said: “Everything was kind of changing at that point. All the hair bands and all that kind of stuff. Everybody was kind of stale. If you think about just songs in general, there were some pretty good songs that the look kind of took away from all that, ’cause you got lumped in with all that kind of crap. I’m not saying we did. But we just came around at a time that we saw a crack and we slipped through it, and we put a lot of hard work and a lot of touring [into it].”

He continued: “Those first two records [‘Cowboys From Hell’ and 1992’s ‘Vulgar Display Of Power’], we toured nonstop. We had 32 days off on the ‘Cowboys From Hell’ tour, and that was the total time period between 18 months on, and then directly back in the studio.”

“We just came in at a time when people needed us. We would stay out in the parking lots until six in the morning signing autographs. I think that really made a big, huge difference between us and other bands that were just, you know, ‘go on the bus and bye.’ You know, you meet one guy, and he goes, ‘Man, those guys were cool.’ And he tells another friend, and it gets around like that.

“We were the biggest underground band of the ’90s,” he added. “We didn’t have a lot of MTV [support], we didn’t have any radio play. Now you go to any sporting event and hear one of our songs at a football game, which is great, but they wouldn’t touch it back then. So we just kind of [flew] by the seat of our pants and kind of D.I.Y., and just toured our butts off and worked really, really hard.”

Thank you all for listening! ??
