MEGADETH frontman Dave Mustaine is planning to open up the band's California recording studio to under-privileged kids - to teach them about rock 'n' roll.
The rockers own a building in San Diego, California which has housed all their recording equipment over the last few years.
But Mustaine has decided to make better use of the space by turning it into a learning centre for children from deprived backgrounds - and he has vowed to teach them all to play instruments.
He tells Britain's Kerrang magazine, "I want to give something back. I'm not one of these guys who needs a lot of money, but because I've been so overpaid during my career I'm going to invite some inner-city kids to the studio and teach them about music.
"Some of these kids have the talent, but not the means to show it. Wouldn't it be awesome to find a kid and bless his life with music and give him a career?"
