Synopsis: MUSTAINE: A LIFE IN METAL(PROMO)

Founding member of Megadeth and former Metallica guitarist Dave Mustaine tells a never-before-heard story of the lifetime he has spent in rock 'n' roll. But this extraordinary tale, riddled with his own personal ups and downs, is also the inside account 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. Metallica, the pioneers of the thrash metal genre, rocketed to international fame in the 1980s, selling over 90 million records worldwide, making it the most successful band of its kind -- ever. Megadeth, the second most successful thrash metal band ever, have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide, including six consecutive platinum albums. Despite their enormous success together, Dave and Metallica have bad blood by the bucket-load. In April of 1983, due in part to alcoholism and in part to personality clashes with founding members Hetfield and Ulrich, Dave was unceremoniously fired from the band, dumped at a Greyhound bus station in Rochester, NY with a single ticket back to LA. How did such an abrupt end come about? How did he pick himself back up, recover his dignity, and go on to send another band into the dizzying heights of rock stardom? The time has come to set the record straight. From the early, crazy days of Metallica to his split with the band, and to his glorious reign with Megadeth, Dave has seen and experienced life's extremities. This startlingly candid, refreshingly in-your-face memoir tells it all.

MUSTAINE, DAVE

about author

"Dave Mustaine is considered to be one of the most influential heavy metal guitarists of all time. This fantastic guitarist is known for his freakish stage antics and his passion for heavy metal and rock music. A man of humble beginnings, he has carved a permanent place for himself in the world of music. However, the earlier days of this rock musician’s life is a woeful case study in bad behavior. From drug peddling to firing band mates at whim and 17 visits to drug rehab centers, he is the quintessential media magnate and has attracted more negative attention than positive. Yet, his capabilities and his sheer passion for music also earned him a place in the hearts of his fans around the world. Although, he was initially known for his episodes of drunken and aggressive behavior and personal clashes with other members in the band, he managed to turn his life around. People who work the circuit now know him as a born-again Christian who is careful not to work with black metal or satanic bands. A vocal critic of the American political system and its politicians, he is well-known to the American public as the man who can put any politician in his place with his razor-sharp arguments and political ideologies.
