During a recent conversation on Joe Rogan’s podcast, Dave Mustaine shared that he used to practice black magic. Mustaine says that, when he was younger, he had abandoned the life of being a Jehovah’s Witness; Dave tells Rogan that his discovery of black magic came from moving in with his sister (all quotes have been transcribed by Metal Hammer).
“You get out of one thing that sucks and so you do something else to extremes. When I bailed on the JW (Jehovah Witness) thing with my mom, I ran away from home up to Idaho where my sister lived and she was practicing black magic, so I got into black magic. She did not practice black, she was practicing white, but I did some black magic. I practiced black magic on two people.”
During this conversation, Dave talks about two hexes he placed on people; while one of those was a “sex hex,” the other was directed at a school bully.
“I did one on one guy that was at school and my nephew told him that I was practicing kung fu san soo at the time. So he was the school tough guy and it was my first day at school and he walked by me and sucker punched me in the stomach and I buckled over. And I thought, ‘Here we go. This is going to suck, this school.’ So I was going home and it was a two-bus ride, big bus to a small drop off and then a bus out to where we lived out in a rural area.”
“We get off the first bus and everybody circles around and he’s going to beat me up. And nothing happens, so I get in the bus, he gets in the bus and he walks back and elbows me in the back of the head when he’s getting out and I had some chewing tobacco in my mouth so I swallowed it. I got so sick. I knew I had to do something or it was going to keep happening. So I put a hex on him that he would get physically injured and he did.”
Joe Rogan asks Mustaine if he thinks the bully got hurt because of the hex – Mustaine replies:
“I think he got hurt because I put a hex on him and because he was an asshole.”
Damn, Dave Mustaine doesn’t fuck around when it comes to casting hexes! Do you think Mustaine’s hex actually worked?
