Mustaine Jealous Of Kiss

MEGADETH frontman DAVE MUSTAINE is jealous of US rockers KISS, because they record their albums so quickly. Perfectionist Mustaine admits he spends years working on his band's albums, and is stunned by the speed at which GENE SIMMONS and his bandmates record. Mustaine says, "One of my heroes growing up was Kiss, but they really frustrated me because they would put out a record just about every year. "I couldn't figure that out. I pretty much have a cycle of about 18 months to 24 months between records. I just can't put them out any quicker than that and feel comfortable about them. "We're taking our time with this one. It's a great feeling to make a record and not have our feet held to the fire."

Mustaine is one of the most "traumatized" rock stars ever! After he was fired from Metallica he just tries to justify he is not at the caliber of rock acts as KISS! Kiss rules!Long Live Heavy Metal!!

Jealous of KISS!!??!! I think not! What he was saying is that his creative process is more selective than their. Beside KISS suck anyways! I mean I used to like them until I saw how greedy they are. And also, Dave once said that Megadeth were supposed to cover a KISS song and they wanted to do one that Ace Frehley had written but Gene and Paul wouldnt allow it. Why? Anyway, Dave is not jealous. Thats totally taken out of context.
