Dave Mustaine has confirmed that Megadeth will start on their new album next week, and adds that he's embarrassed by how much he swears in interviews.
He made the announcement during an update on his health problems which include damaged vocal cords and a bad back, which peaked last year when Megadeth were touring as part of the Big Four.
"I still find it laughable that someone I know said I was a pussy while lying in an ER awaiting spinal surgery for contemplating cancelling the 'Big Four' show in New York City," Mustaine wrote in an update to fans (via Blabbermouth). "I walked away from the surgery, which was done after the concert (who's the p--sy now?) and was a complete success."
His problem is treatable, but has been forced to cut certain foods from his diet, including chocolate, tomatoes and coffee. "I am loving this 'Countdown' 20th-anniversary tour, and with the new record starting next week, singing is more important to me than ever," he writes.
Finally, he adds that he's been watching footage of his interviews and live shows, and felt compelled to apologise for his bad language: "I'm not a prude, but I am sorry for my language and some of the offensive words I chose to say. We all have said stuff we regret, and while I don't 'regret it,' I do feel that you deserve better from me."
