Guitarist John 5 has been performing a new song called ‘Que Pasa’, which features the voice of MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine.
The track, which will be included on John’s next studio album, ‘Sinner’.
Speaking about how the MEGADETH frontman came to be involved with the track, John 5 told AL.com: “We had a sample from James Brown, and the record company was, like, ‘We can’t use that sample. We’ll get sued. Who would you want to use?’ And I was, like, ‘Well, I would love to use Dave Mustaine.’ So I reached out and he agreed, and he really liked the song and that’’s gonna be the first video as well. It’s called ‘Que Pasa’.”
John 5 originally shared the news of Mustaine’s appearance on the new song in an interview last month with radio station KLOS, saying: “We have Dave Mustaine doing a little vocal thing. ‘Cause we have these little vocal hooks in each song. So it’s super cool. And Mustaine did it. And it sounds so good. I love MEGADETH so much, so I was, like, ‘Oh my God. We’ve gotta see if Mustaine will do it.’ And he kills it.”
