Special Report from BW&BK
Members of MEGADETH have posted messages at the band's website, www.megadeth.com, in the wake of the recent tragedy in the U.S.
From David Ellefson on September 11th, "Last night Dave called me in my hotel room to let me know that our Behind The Music special was on again. It was fun to see it and shortly thereafter I went to bed and fell asleep. The next thing I know Dave's calling me again only this time it's 7:00 am pacific time and he's telling me that America is being attacked and it's all on CNN. It took me awhile just to grasp it all, especially first thing in the morning. It's amazing how everything seems pretty insignificant when this kind of national tragedy happens. I hope you are all safe and I look forward to seeing you as we head around the continent on this tour. David."
From Dave Mustaine on September 12th, "Droogies! You all know I believe in God, and if you would please oblige me, I would just like to ask God to look over the families of the lost firemen who risked their lives to go in and save the trapped victims; to look over the families of the police that tried to save everyone from any further unknown acts of terrorism while this was all going down, and who lost their lives in the line of duty. These two groups of men and women gave their lives and paid the ultimate sacrifice for us all yesterday. Also to the Mayor, Governor and the City of New York for how they are handling this, you have done an incredible job. To the emergency and medical technicians, and hospital workers, ambulance drivers, EMT and any others who lost their lives or have committed endless hours working to aid the victims and survivors; to the workers, visitors, and unfortunate people who were temporarily in the World Trade Center buildings in the process of doing their jobs, may God look over their families and help comfort their pain. To the pilots families of the hi-jacked planes, I would hope that God would look over them and help ease their pain, knowing that it was not their fault for this; to the brave men and women in the plane that fought with the hijackers that diverted the plane in the Pennsylvania crash from doing more damage to our beloved country and taking more lives. And most importantly, to all of the people around the world who cannot understand why this has happened, let us unite in volunteering in helping the victims and the survivors of this calamity. I am going to give my blood on my birthday when I get home, if I get home, after our concert tonight in Vancouver."
