Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Says He Underwent “51 Radiation Treatments And Nine Chemo Treatments” Before Being Declared Cancer Free

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine recently addressed his health during the band’s January 31 show at The SSE Arena in London, England. The frontman says he underwent “51 radiation treatments and nine chemo treatments” before being declared cancer free in October 2019.

Mustaine said the following:

“About a year ago, we were working on our new album back in Franklin, Tennessee, and I started to feel some pain over here [points to his throat]. So I went to the doctor and he said, ‘Dave, you have cancer.’ And I went, ‘Fuck! I have cancer.’ And I was so shocked.

At first, I thought, ‘Am I afraid?’ And then I said, ‘No. I’m fucking pissed.’ And we stopped the record; we stopped everything. I went into treatment for cancer. It was 51 radiation treatments and nine chemo treatments. And when it was all said and done, every day I would think, ‘I can’t face not playing again. I can’t face not playing again.’

So I would pray. I know a lot of you guys know that I pray. I say that in ‘Peace Sells‘. I pray every day. I say that in the song. I’ve said it since the second record. But I thought about you guys every day too. And I thought about my family. And I got this power from you guys. And I just kept thinking about it. And on October 16th, I went to go see the doctor, and he said, ‘You’re 100 percent free of cancer.’”

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine To Discuss The Making Of “Rust In Peace” In New Book “Building The Perfect Beast”

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine has announced that he will be releasing a new book titled “Building The Perfect Beast” on September 8 via Hachette Books. The book will focus on the making of the band’s 1990 album “Rust In Peace.”

Here’s a synopsis of the book:

“‘Building The Perfect Beast’ details the making of Megadeth’s iconic record ‘Rust In Peace’, which was released in 1990, at an incredible time of flux and creativity in the rock world. Relayed by Mustaine, the book covers the process of hiring the band and supporting cast, of trying to handle the ensuing success, and ultimately the pressure of fame and fortune-which caused the band to finally break-up. In short, it’s a true story of groundbreaking anti-pop that was moving toward the mainstream (or the mainstream that was moving toward the band), at a time of great cultural change, power, ego, drugs, and other vices that went hand-in-hand with rock and roll, circa the late eighties-early nineties.

Little did Mustaine know that the birth pangs of the record were nothing compared to the oncoming pain and torment that would surround it. Alcohol, drugs, sex, money, power, property, prestige, the lies the band was told by the industry — and the lies they told each other — were just beginning, and much like rust in real life, these factors would ultimately eat away at the band’s bond until only the music survived.

‘Building The Perfect Beast’ is a story of perseverance, of scraping off the rust off that builds over time on everything: ourselves, our relationships, pop culture, art, and music.”
