Dave Mustaine Finishes Autobiography "Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir"

Megadeth's Dave Mustaine has checked in with the following update about finishing his new book:

"Droogies! Wow! What a week! I have been running and gunning since we got back from this tour. From the tour bus to the studio to my house, and add in two funerals, several Doctors' appointments, a trip to the Dentist, therapist, and a priest and that was my first week back.

"Of course there is all of the work that we are doing here at Megadeth.com, with the Megadeth Fan Club, Megadeth Radio, TheLiveLine.com, the Studio and Mustaine Music Academy, my new book, 'MUSTAINE: A heavy Metal Memoir,' and anything else I can sink my teeth in to, just in case I get bored in-between tours. But you know all of that. So, I want to tell you that we are getting ready to leave for our most expansive and longest ever Megadeth Tour in South and Central America.

"I am still deciding if we are going to have meet and greets down there because, as you can prolly guess, not everyone in the MFC is a fan, and LA may have pretty much sealed it for everyone else. I mean I know that the M&G attendees read the instructions that say ONLY ONE THING, and sadly most of them completely disregard them, ultimately ruining it for us all. Then there is the getting pawed at (which I hate!), which can only be made up for with the good humor upon hearing their excuses why they should be different from all of you Droogs with honor - who can read. What would you do?

"Anyway, Megadeth Radio is progressing nicely. I have been getting rid of a lot of the songs that have somehow found there way onto the station. I am also adding new music each week, as well as answering emails now. Just remember to keep it about the station or I won't be able to answer ya.

"TheLiveLine.com is starting to really pick up speed and this will be a good way to keep track of us in South and Central America. If you are in the fan club and are a TLL member, you can use TLL to notify you of any MFC information. I have the great pleasure of telling you that we will be making a pretty important announcement soon regarding TLL/MFClub, including but not limited to announcing some new and tremendous talent, as well as some new features, and the higly anticipated announcement of the winner of 'THE BIG FOUR - GETAWAY.'

"My book is finally finished and has cleared all of the attorneys. We have a solid release date and I am going to be booking a small book signing tour around the states, and that is all I have for now."

What's Next?

Well, i'd be interested in what it says, but honestly i don't have the time to read 300 pages on someone b****ing about metallica. The book is probably gonna be a sh** load of lies. I see alot of musicians stating mustaine is full of it again after this is released. just watch....

I SAW MEGADETH IN A LITTLE CLUB IN FT. WAYNE INDIANA ON 11 6 04 AND WAS IN FRONT ROW DURING TORNADO OF SOULS I SANG THE WRONG WORDS AND MUSTAINE GOT A HATEFUL LOOK ON HIS FACE AND ROLLED HIS EYES AT ME.HE TALKS ALOT ABOUT GROWING UP AND BEING MORE POLITE IN THE LAST FEW YEARS WITH BEING BORN AGAIN.IF DAVE TRULY HAD GUTS AND JESUS IN HIS HEART HE WOULD STOP TALKING SO BAD ABOUT LARS AND STOP MAKING SECULAR MUSIC. IM 27 AND HAVE LOVED MEGADETH SINCE 92. THERE COMES A TIME WHEN U STOP MAKING CHOICES THAT MAKE U HAPPY AND START MAKING CHOICES THAT MAKE OTHER PEOPLE PROUD OF U. IS HE SCARED TO MAKE AN ALBUM WITHOUT THE WORD MEGADETH ON IT? LET ME HEAR ABOUT HOW U FOUND GOD AND NOT HOW THE WORLD IS GONNA END. TALK TO PEOPLE ABOUT ETERNITY WITHOUT GOD. HELL WASNT BUILT IN A DAY AND NOBODY EVER WENT TO HEAVEN BY LISTENING TO MUSTAINE TELL US ABOUT THE END GAME.HE MAY BE RIGHT BUT HE NEVER SINGS ABOUT A WAY OUT OF THIS MESS WE PUT OURSELVES INTO.

Most of this will just be Mustaine taking credit for Metallica, saying he's better than everyone else, and how he is never wrong. Just like everytime we've heard from him in the past 20+ years.

I am totally disgusted by the fact that this c-u-n-t has got finnish roots. Mustaine = Mustonen (he's words)
I can also see it. Awful

fvcking tool man....cheesed!ck just makes it up as he goes along to maximize his vain and shallow imagined 'advantage'....."hmmm finland is a pretty obscure place with some unique history and some great metal---hey THAT is where i should be from....yay! i'm a finn!!!"

ah hell, maybe he just learned his self at geneology.com :)

finnish? i don't think so....

wolf, i have no idea what you're on about

finland is a fine country, one that i appreciate, and i do not see where i made ANY insult whatsoever...quite the opposite

i think you're not understanding what i'm sayin....finn IS cool, something 'ol stain has apparently conveniently recognized lately and is now coattailing

jesus man...what the hell?

hellrat, mate, I'm sorry for my outburst there. Sorry.
I'm a bit touchy right now.

As for Mustaine, How many different versions has this man given of himself?? He once upon a time told to the finnish press without a blinking that his roots are in finland, that he's surname comes from 'Mustonen', plus that he'd want to come to finland "to find his roots". ;)

If he doesn't have finnish roots, I Am Happy. But, actually, and unfortunately, there are some strong indications especially in his behavior pointing he might be.
I hope I'm wrong.

nah brother, its no big deal...i was in agreement with ya there at #20

the goofy dude will try and claim he 'has roots' in whatever happens to be cool at any particular juncture....whether its his f***ing family tree, his guitar playing, his woefully unforgettable ties to metallica, his 'ardent' faith, his goddamned therapy, etc. and so forth

anyway, i'm sure whoever reads this stroker's scribblings will hear newer and even MORE fantastic claims to his unparalleled greatness...

a regular fvcking superman that guy ;)
