Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine called a fan “an asshole,” “a turd” and “a pile of shit” for interrupting him while he spoke to the audience at the group’s show in Moline, Illinois, on October 7.
The incident was captured on video and shows Mustaine telling the crowd a story, when a man in the audience loudly interrupts him.
“What? What’d you say?” Mustaine asks. “Okay, everybody, I’m gonna wait till this asshole is done talking.”
“No, go ahead,” Mustaine says after waiting a moment. “Whatever you’ve gotta say is more important than what I’ve gotta say.”
