Just wanted to say that Dave Mustaine's book is actually an interesting read

...and it has a lot of funny parts in it.


The main/opening riff of Tornado of Souls got me into guitar when I was 12 and I'm 24 now. Even though I'm not a big fan of Megadeth like I used to be, it was still a really good read.

I recommend it.

oh wow Mustaine is my favorite guitarist and Megadeth one of my favorite groups. completely forgot this came out after it being delayed so long! definitely going to pick it up now, thanks man! I bet it is good, he is pretty intelligent, and somewhat arrogant which should make for a good read.

There is an excerpt of the book in this months Guitar World Mag. It seems well written from the small sample that was printed.

I'm not surprised he wrote a good book he's an intelligent man and has lead an interesting life.


Yea he's pretty articulate. He remembers exactly where/when he tried things like meth or heroin lol. He isn't very one sided like he usually is in interviews in the book either. He saw Metallica's side of the situation concerning his firing and even quotes himself to a girlfriend of the time saying that he left them when that girl knew he was fired. He says that he was just angry and self loathing, but in denial.

He also openly admits he has twisted things to his favor in words, but that others have in the past too.

I just hope he can write a book better than he can write songs...

I think the best part I've read so far is about a groupie he was with that mentioned how her boyfriend likes to pour A1 sauce on her....deal...and Mustaine left her that moment lol.

I wanted to grab a copy of this as soon as it arrives in the Waterstones near me. Unfortunately, I think they said Late September

Mustaine is one of my favourite guitarists

I wasn't particularly talking about the lyrics, although they are awful.

I think that might just be harassment.

OT: Yeah, it sounds cool enough, I'll pick it up from the library sometime soon.
One day met a and he was all like because he had
never met a before. I told about the powers that this
possessed and he proceeded to it for its magical meat.
Then died. The End.

A little tip for people who are looking for this in Ireland (maybe UK). Saw it in Eason earlier which really surprised me, but didn't get it cause its £15. Gonna wait till it gets cheaper like what i did with Slash's autobiography but what i read seems really good

Ibanez RGR321EX

I finished reading it a few weeks ago.
I'm a huge fan of Megadeth and Dave Mustaine but I was somewhat disappointed with the book.
It started off strong but towards the end I began to question whether I was accidentally reading a Christian self help book.

ONE THING THAT REALLY PISSED ME OFF...
was when Dave bashed Carvin.
It probably wouldn't have pissed me off as much if he still played ESP or Jackson but he plays Dean.
So Dave, you need to shut the f*ck up because a Carvin will rape anything you've had your hands on in a long, long time.
#30
He was actually going to buy Jackson but Fender outbid him so thats why he stopped using them. I read the book in like 3 days. The part about the freak nerve injury in his left hand was interesting. I had no idea he couldn't play guitar for over a year. It was a really good book IMO. Very entertaining and interesting. Wish I hadn't of seen the Megadeth behind the music because that spoiled some of it for me.
I don't always post in the threads but when I do its random and pointless because I'm ignorant enough to think you care.
#31
i really... REALLY hope this doesn't have a rant about Metallica in it. i respect the man as a guitarist because he's awesome but i got very tired of him dwelling on Metallica. Might not buy it but would like to take a look

I thought I was the only one that this pissed off! I put the book down for a while in fact.

So he plays Deans, big deal! The USA ones are actually really good guitars. That being said I like Carvins better.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Judging by you agreeing with my comment
and your username
i can tell that you are an incredibly intelligent individual.


Also I don't know if you guys will even know what I'm talking about but I was kind of disappointed in that this book sort of followed he typical formula for a musicians auto biography.

I thought Dave could've included plenty more tour stories that made me laugh and captivated my interest.

Like when they were in some religious red neck town and hung out at a bar with a bunch of christians telling them that they are a gospel group called Me-Gad-Eth. Or in Cafe Moscow with the leningrad cowboys. Those stories are too good not to tell in his book.
