LACUNA COIL Singer: DAVE MUSTAINE Has 'Always Been Extremely Nice With Us'
April 23, 2012
LACUNA COIL singer Cristina Scabbia was recently asked by GentlemenChronicles.com what it's been like touring with MEGADETH in light of MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine's reputation for sometimes being difficult to work with (see video below).
"I have a weird story with MEGADETH because they asked me to be part of their song 'A Tout Le Monde' when they re-did it [for MEGADETH's 2007 album 'United Abominations'], but I didn't know the guys," she said. "And I actually didn't meet them [until] the first Gigantour we did together. So I did the recording only with Andy Sneap as the producer of the album where 'A Tout Le Monde' was included. And I didn't meet Dave, I didn't meet the guys, because they weren't there. So the very first time we met them was on the Gigantour, and he was actually extremely cool with us. He came in the dressing room the very first day, bringing a bottle of champagne with a nice note saying that he was really to have us on the tour."
She added, "To be honest, I don't know anything about these 'temper' rumors, because he's always been extremely nice with us. I think you just have to be able to take him in the right mood and be respectful towards him, because I believe that he saw so many people, he met so many people, that have been dicks towards him that it's probably a type of protection from him to divide the people he really wants to be [in touch with] and the people that he doesn't like. I think it's honest. I mean, it's honest, instead of [being] like, 'Hey,' and smiling with everybody. If you don't wanna smile, you don't have to."
Multi-camera fan-filmed video footage of Scabbia joining MEGADETH on stage on January 28, 2012 at the third show of this year's Gigantour at the 5,600-seat Theater At Madison Square Garden in New York City to perform the MEGADETH song "A Tout Le Monde" can be seen below.
