Maybe this will keep Dave from his daily updates for a while (not that I actually ever read them anyway). I'm sure i'm not the only one that hopes for that kind of result.

Whatever. I'm gonna read it. If Metallica can have a goddamn movie made about that abortion of an album then let Dave Mustaine write a book.

I knew there was a reason I've been listening to Megadeth for the past two days.
I hate reading, but I would definitely read this. It would be interesting to hear about the good and the bad times in detailed words from Dave.

Dave Mustaine is the only person that could write an autobiography and get the p***ed about the way it turns out.
