Dave Mustaine Inks Publishing Deal With Warner
This is weird to me, for some reason.
Warner/Chappell Music, the music publishing arm of Warner Music Group, has announced that it has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with renowned Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine.
Effective immediately, Warner/Chappell will administer Mustaine’s songwriting from Megadeth’s recently released album Super Collider, as well as future songwriting.
“I am very excited about this new partnership with Warner/Chappell. I am glad to be reuniting with a hero of mine, Jon Platt, and industry legend Greg Sowders. I have never been happier.”
Added Jon Platt, president of creative for the North America arm of Warner/Chappell Music:
“As a singer, songwriter and guitarist, Dave Mustaine has virtually defined heavy metal music for the past three decades. Since founding Megadeth, Dave has built a body of work that serves as the benchmark for an entire genre. Today, Megadeth remains a vital force, and Dave continues to rank among rock’s most creative and influential musicians and composers. We are thrilled to welcome him to Warner/Chappell.”
So that happened.
