Grammy Awards: Dave Mustaine digs the Zac Brown Band. Who knew?

February 13, 2011 |  2:46 pm

Dave Mustaine, the gloriously coiffed frontman of Megadeth, is doing his best with all the Grammy chaos, including having patience with a TV reporter who dropped her mike, saying, "Sorry, there's a lot going on." However, don't ask him to choose favorites: When asked what was one of his favorite songs this year, he replied, "That's a ridiculous question." Although he later added that he'd recently become familiar with the Zac Brown Band: "That's pretty good stuff." He also said the lead-up to the Grammys had been pretty tame,  since he'd been spending time in San Diego working on Megadeth's upcoming album.
