MEGADETH Frontman DAVE MUSTAINE On Three Decades Of Friendship With BODY COUNT's ICE -T - "Listening To The Music He Makes, It's Still Motivational"

Metal Hammer has published a new article featuring Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine and Body Count founder Ice-T discussing their friendship, which spans three decades. Following is an excerpt from the piece. 

Mustaine: "It's been about 30 years. I like Ice a lot. I really admire what he's done. He's a talented person. The opportunities he was presented with, he made them work for him. He did what a lot of the artists from the cities, deep down in the cities, would do. He talked about the blight and the hardships and how they were going to make it, and that determination is always a great motivator, whether you're white or black. Listening to the music he makes, it's still motivational."

Ice-T: "I was aware of Megadeth, and my attention was brought to Dave Mustaine because there was some magazine that asked his favourite five albums of the year, and he said O.G. (1991's Original Gangster). That was odd, coming from the leader of a heavy metal act. So from that moment, I said, 'I gotta meet this guy.'"
