MUSTAINE MAKES A STAND AGAINST SATANISM

MEGADETH star DAVE MUSTAINE has reportedly ditched a bunch of festival appearances as he refuses to risk rocking alongside Satanic bands on the bill.

Mustaine became a devout Christian in 2002 and is disturbed by the number of metal bands, with names such as ROTTING CHRIST and DISSECTION, who claim to be Satanists.

He writes on his website: "For the concerts I headline or I put together, it's usually my choice who I play with.

"Festivals are different. If I don't feel it is right for me to do something, I would respectfully decline."
