Former Metallica guitarist and Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine is now charging $150 per Cameo clip for private videos to fans.
Mustaine said, “Hey, I’m Dave Mustaine and I’d like to invite you to have me send a personalized greeting from Cameo for you to your friends.
“I can say ‘Happy birthday,’ ‘Happy anniversary,’ ‘Merry Christmas,’ ‘Happy Hanukkah’ – whatever. Or my personal favorite is, like, ‘Fuck.’ No, we won’t get into that here.
“But I will tell you that if you do have me do a Cameo for you, a portion of the proceeds will go to charities that I support.”
Megadeth recently fired David Ellefson and replaced his bass recordings on their new album.
We are informing our fans that David Ellefson is no longer playing with Megadeth. We do not take this decision lightly.
“While we do not know every detail of what occurred, with an already strained relationship, what has already been revealed now is enough to make working together impossible moving forward.
“We look forward to seeing our fans on the road this summer, and we cannot wait to share our brand-new music with the world. It is almost complete.”
