Product description

Review

"Entirely awesome."--Washington Post

"(Mustaine's) memoir is honest, certainly - and not without that trademark bite - but there is also considerable maturity in his words."--The Quietus

"[MUSTAINE] is more tenacious, more introspective, and ultimately more relevant than you'd expect."--CHARTattack.com

"A fascinating and sometimes eye-opening look at Mustaine the man as well as Mustaine the rock star... A must read for Megadeth fans, and highly recommended for metal fans in general."--About.com

"A frank and detailed account of the life and times of the infamous vocalist/guitarist/song writer...Mustaine's account of Megadeth's early years is told with humor and with real honesty... A riveting read."--blistering.com

"A must-have for all fans and haters alike"--Metal-army.com

"Dave Mustaine's memoir is the narrative of a struggling, hard-won music career. It is also a story of survival, redemption and faith... Transcending simple religion and music, Mustaine's Heavy Metal Memoir will leave you moved and inspired."--Globe and Mail (Toronto)

"One hell of a story"--Crawdaddy

"Remorseless."--Rolling Stone

From the Back Cover

Now with a new chapter

Dave Mustaine is the first to admit that he's 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-f**king religious weirdness (in his case the extremes of the Jehovah's 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. That's how lucky he is to be pulling breath after so many close calls. But here's the thing about having a horseshoe lodged in your rectum: It also hurts like hell. And you never forget it's 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 star--founder, front man, singer, songwriter, and guitarist (and de facto CEO) for Megadeth, one of the most popular bands in heavy metal--Mustaine's story will inspire, stun, and terrify.
