Megadeth Behind The Music DVD

One of the most aired episodes of VH1’s Behind The Music the Megadeth episode was full of rock and roll ruin and redemption that was so bizarre that you might have thought it was complete fantasy had you not witnessed it with your own eyes and ears. Here now is that classic episode along with a full half-hour of material deemed too extreme or controversial for airing. The time has come to dump your ratty VHS copy in favor of this DVD my Metal brothers and sisters.

The main story here is of course the devastation that Dave Mustaine and his revolving door of sidekicks left in their wake while forging the template for all speed metal. Here you will re-learn how the Megadeth flame was ignited by Mustaine’s dismissal from Metallica and just how many times that flame was nearly snuffed out by Mustaine’s dance with drugs and drink. Ultimately Mustaine gets clean, finds happiness in most aspects of his life and puts together what many, myself included, see as the ultimate Megadeth lineup. You may know most of the story but here are the pictures to prove it.

Beyond the extra interviews and never before seen footage of Megadeth in action there is the full “Moto Psycho” video that, due to its release by an independent record company, is not likely to get another play on any significant music channel. This video captures Mega-Dave Mustaine and band owning just about every heavy metal cliché known and not once do you think to laugh; it is all just too genuine. Like the title of the latest Megadeth disc the world does need a hero and here is the story of that hero, kryptonite poisoning and all.
