Truth, by Mustaine

Truth, by Mustaine
"Telling the truth is hard for anybody," asserts thrash metal progenitor and Megadeth vocalist/guitarist Dave Mustaine about his autobiography Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir. Unafraid to reveal every ugly reality, the book traces Mustaine's life from early childhood through his legendary Metallica debacle and Megadeth ordeals up to today. Disclosing everything from religious beliefs to opinions and debauched rock'n'roll tales, Mustaine's conversational prose creates a compellingly blunt, eloquently insightful and interesting personal account regardless of musical preference. "The only uncomfortable thing about this was putting the stuff in there that made me look bad...but I had to in order for it to be the truth."
