He has blacklisted “The Conjuring” from live performances
The frontman has refused to play the 1986 song “The Conjuring” live. Claiming to have practiced black magic as a teen, Mustaine says the craft was the basis for the crushing ‘Peace Sell’ track. However, in a recent interview with “The Morning Blaze with Gus & Izzy” on Fresno’s 105.1 The Blaze, Mustaine said he is reconsidering his decision. “As I grow, I evolve in my outlook and my personal journey here, being a positive person and being a positive influence on other people’s lives. So as long as it doesn’t hurt anybody, I wouldn’t mind doing the song again, ’cause it is a good song,” he explained.
