A new book by the lead vocalist and guitarist of Megadeth, the original lead guitarist of Metallica, and the author of the NYT bestseller Mustaine. Rust in Peace details the making of Megadeth’s iconic record, which was released in 1990, at an incredible time of flux and creativity in the rock world. Relayed by the lead vocalist and guitarist of Megadeth himself, Dave 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 ‘n’ roll circa the late ‘80s-early ‘90s. 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. Rust in Peace is a story of perseverance, of scraping off the rust that builds over time on everything: ourselves, our relationships, pop culture, art, and music.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“You cannot discuss heavy metal without mentioning Dave Mustaine and Megadeth…This book is a must-read for metal fans.” Alice Cooper
“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Dave Mustaine. Dave’s always stayed true to himself and has never been interested in chasing musical trends. If you ask me that’s been the key to Megadeth’s success and longevity in this business.” Ozzy Osbourne

Author Bio: Dave Mustaine

Dave Mustaine, widely regarded as the founding father of Thrash Metal, almost singlehandedly created the enduring multiplatinum style that launched both Megadeth and Metallica into the public’s consciousness. From 1985’s Killing Is My Business…and Business Is Good to the most recent Endgame, with more than twelve album releases with Megadeth, Mustaine has left a legacy of music that has been described as everything from poignant to insightful to angry to ironic. Megadeth earned eight Grammy nominations and six platinum certifications. Mustaine lives in San Diego County, California.
