Mustaine a must read if your a music lover
Dave Mustsine is a very divisive character you are either in team Mustaine or not and this book will only help decide which camp you are in. It explores his childhood, to Metallica to the various incarnations of Megadeth, the fall out with Jnr the reconciliation with Metallica and Jnr and the dynmaic with Kerry King and the moment he found God.. This book also doesn't rely on other musicians giving their opinions but there truth and How Dave Mustaine views it. An absolutely brilliant read!!

Best book about music i've read in a long time, and i've read alot of them!
The reason I bought this book was not only because I am a huge fan of Megadeth, but I have always been intrigued by Dave Mustaine and his lyrics. I had heard a little bit about him and Megadeth before reading the book and it sounded very interesting and I knew I wanted to know more about his views and beliefs on life, whether I believe them or not. I have read the book, and I absolutely loved it, I am not surprised it was a best-seller. Even people who do not like Heavy Metal can appreciate this book and what Dave went through in his life, from his wild youth and almost traumatizing expulsion from Metallica to making a comeback with Megadeth, he expresses quite alot in this book. Honestly, and I have gone over my memories of the book, I cannot say I disliked anything about it, it was just Dave being himself. And you need to expect alot of bad language and constant referencing to drugs and alcohol, he is a heavy metal star for crying out loud! After reading this book, and reading other books by other musicians, I can honestly say this was the most exciting and interesting, I didn't want it to end, but of course this was not the never ending story. If I cannot find another book he's written I will be eagerly awaiting another, here's hoping.Read full review
