9780061714405: Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir

Former Metallica guitarist and founding member of Megadeth Dave Mustaine talks for the first time about his life in rock ‘n’ roll, finally telling the inside story of two of the most influential heavy metal bands in the world.

Here, for the first time ever, Dave Mustaine tells the tale of two of the biggest metal bands in history; a story yet to be told from the inside. A pioneer of the thrash metal movement, Metallica rose to international fame in the 1980s, selling over 90 million records worldwide, making them the most successful thrash metal band ever. And Megadeth - the second most successful thrash metal band ever - have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide, including six consecutive platinum albums.

But despite their enormous success together, Dave and Metallica have had some bad blood. In April of 1983, partly due to alcoholism and partly due to personality clashes with founding members Hetfield and Ulrich, he was fired from the band and unceremoniously dropped off at a Greyhound station in Rochester, NY with a ticket back to LA. Now he will finally tell his side of the story.

From the early, crazy days of Metallica, to his split with the band to ruling over Megadeth, Dave has seen and experienced it all. And now he's telling it all in his startlingly candid, in-your-face memoir.

Book Description It Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 400 pages. Now with a new chapter Dave Mustaine is the first to admit that hes bottomed out a few times in his dark and twisted speed metal version of a Dickensian life. Impoverished, transient childhood Check. Abusive, alcoholic parent Check. Mind-fking religious weirdness (in his case the extremes of the Jehovahs Witnesses and satanism) Check. Alcoholism, drug addiction, homelessness Check, check, Check. Soul-crushing professional and artistic setbacks Check. Rehab Check (seventeen times, give or take). Near-death experience Check that one, too. James Hetfield, with whom many years ago Mustaine founded a band known as Metallica, once observed, with some incredulity, that Mustaine must have been born with a horseshoe up his ass. Thats how lucky he is to be pulling breath after so many close calls. But heres the thing about having a horseshoe lodged in your rectum: It also hurts like hell. And you never forget its there. Mustaine has battled it all to achieve dizzying heights. From the early, heady days of Metallica, being unceremoniously let go only to become a world-famous rock starfounder, front man, singer, songwriter, and guitarist (and de facto CEO) for Megadeth, one of the most popular bands in heavy metalMustaines story will inspire, stun, and terrify.
