Dave Mustaine Is Almost Done With A Book About Every MEGADETH Song Ever Written

Posted by on March 18, 2016 at 2:01 pm

Dave Mustaine wrote a memoir that came out in 2011 called Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir, and the reviews seems pretty positive on the whole. As someone who reads quite a bit, and respects the legacy of Mustaine, I'd like to get around to it eventually… though this new book sounds even better.

In an interview with NorthJersey.com, Mustaine says that he's currently working on a book that will chronicle every Megadeth song ever written.

In addition to touring and recording, Mustaine said he hopes to complete a book that will convey the story behind every Megadeth song. His 2011 biography, "Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir," made The New York Times bestseller list.

"It's mostly done," Mustaine said of his next book. "The problem is I'm so busy right now I can't pay attention to it, which is not a bad problem to have."

Alright, color me interested. That's a lot of reading, and that's a lot of listening, but if Mustaine is willing to play storyteller for every single song across the band's 15 albums (and then non-album singles, etc.), then that's some serious dedication worth paying attention to.
