Description
From his early, crazy days as a founding member of Metallica, Dave Mustaine has seen and experienced everything in the world of rock n' roll. From his young triumphs and ignominious ouster from the band for his hard-partying ways to his later rule over Megadeth, one of the most successful heavy metal bands of all time, Mustaine tells it all. Outrageously candid and in-your-face, this is classic rock memoir in the vein of Slash, Motley Crue: The Dirt, and Sound of the Beast--an insider's look at the loud and sordid world of heavy metal.
