Biography

Dave Mustaine (born David Scott Mustaine on September 13, 1961 in La Mesa, California, United States) is a guitarist, songwriter, and singer. He grew up in various Southern California suburbs. As the central figure of Megadeth and a former Metallica lead guitarist and co-songwriter, he is one of a handful of people considered to have pioneered and .

In 1981 Dave Mustaine left his first band Panic to join Metallica as the lead guitarist. Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich had posted an ad in a local newspaper, called The Recycler, looking for a lead guitarist. In his own words, Mustaine remembers his first meeting with James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich: “I was convinced that I should be in the band and went to rehearsal. I was tuning up when all the other guys in the band went into another room. They weren’t talking to me, so I went in and said, ‘Well? Am I in the band or not?’ and they said, ‘You’ve got the gig.’ I couldn’t believe how easy it had been and suggested that we get some beer to celebrate.

Mustaine’s membership in Metallica, however, would last less than two years. Brian Slagel, an early manager of the band, recalls in an interview: “Dave was an incredibly talented guy, but he also had an incredibly large problem with alcohol and drugs.

    Дэйв, чувак, ты Бог! Продолжай мстить метле за то, что они выпилили тебя, наложи им говна так, чтобы они в нем захлебнулись.

    He hates dem queers and mexicans but he suuuure loves jaysis! What an empty headed washed up talentless hack. A vacuous homophobic racist and a terrible guitarist. It's no wonder he got kicked out of Metallica.
