February 27, 2008 - JAMES LOMENZO CHECKS IN FROM EUROPE!
James LoMenzo has posted this update on the Megadeth Forums: "My head's still reeling from an incredible U.K. run. Great, great gathering of metal-heads both old and relatively new. Most the bands been pretty ill throughout this run but the fervor at the shows was overwhelming enough to distract us and overcome all that. I want to thank the bloke in New Castle who was kind enough to share his beer with me from the 7th row. At first I was pissed off (not pissed) and then I realized that it was probably just an old B.L.S. fan that owed me one. Thanks anyway!" MORE

February 24, 2008 - DAVE MUSTAINE SPEAKS ABOUT GIGANTOUR BANDS IN REVOLVER
In the April 2008 issue of Revolver magazine, Dave Mustaine spoke about how what kind of bands he was looking for to round out the Gigantour lineup this year. "I wanted bands that weren't necessarily smash successes but that have been around for a while and built a following," he said. "And I wanted bands that have had consistent musicianship. There was a period over the last 10 years where guitar solos weren't popular anymore — they weren't en vogue. Thank God they're back in style, because I look at guys that don't play solos as guys who aren't fully accomplished guitar players."

February 11, 2008 - DAVE MUSTAINE COFFEE SALES BUYS PUMP FOR ORPHANAGE
Legends Cup V.P. Scott Holmen: "Legends Cup received a call from our friends at The Door of Faith Orphanage last week. They told us that their well pump which, when functioning properly, pumps 10 gallons per minute was gradually wearing out and was currently pumping 4 gallons per minute. With over 100 kids and several staff to hydrate and clean this was clearly a problem that needed fixing. Legends Cup had the privilege of providing a brand new pump that cranks out 15 gallons per minute. The money for the pump came directly from the proceeds of Dave Mustaine Coffee sales through Legends Cup Coffee." Check out more at LegendsCupCoffee.com
