Pre Show Rituals (Part 2). Calgary, AB.

anonymous asked:

What is Dave's pre-show ritual?

Dave Mustaine, in his dragon form, swoops onto the roof of the venue as the tour bus pulls into the loading dock. From there, a group of specially cloned Dave Mustaines unload the set piece by piece (think Pikmin). As the last piece of equipment is loaded into the venue, Dave changes to his human form and heads into the building. From there, a man dressed in full clown attire only on the left side (per Dave Mustaine’s request) shows Dave to his dressing room. As Dave settles in on his Dave Mustaine - shaped beanbag chair, he decides to call his best buddy, David Lee Roth. He demands David brings him all of the rejected brown M&Ms from past Van Halen concerts. As the candy treats arrive, he puts them all in a tub and bathes in them until they all melt. At this time it is about 5 minutes before the show starts, so Dave goes out for his pre show warmup smelling like fire and chocolate. At this point nobody questions it. Finally he fits a bicycle horn comfortably in his larynx and goes out to rock in front of 20,000 people.

Older interview that I’m sharing for new JB/JLY friends…love the answers, and a couple of them crack me up, especially a certain “Catholic” pre-show ritual and the worst flubbed line.  ;o)

bennett & violet // love me tender

Bennett wasn’t the type to fancy himself with pre-show rituals. Some people liked to perform extensive vocal warmups, others concocted strange blends that they would chug down to help “strengthen their vocal tenacity” (as he had heard from a male Madonna impersonator backstage at a talent night). But he had never seen the need for rituals; for the initial nervousness of performing had long since passed, and now it was something as easy as breathing to him.

But as he parked in front of the venue with Violet perched in the passenger’s seat, he couldn’t prevent the butterflies from fluttering inside of his chest. “You sure you wanna watch?” He asked timidly, already knowing what her response would be.
