    Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir

    Most of you are probably smarter than I am and didn't spend $13 buying this for kindle.

    If you didn't know already I feel it is my public duty to warn everybody, don't read this book, it is horrible

    I could go on and on about the (possibly at least slightly fabricated) stories and anecdotes, but one of the highlights is Dave claiming that he introduced the world of Heavy Metal to the Tritone There are other equally horrible parts, but I've already managed to repress the memories.

    You have been warned.

    This is the first sentence in the "About the Author" section

    "Dave Mustaine, widely regarded as the 'founding father' of Thrash Metal, almost singlehandedly created the enduring multiplatinum style that launched Megadeth and Metallica into the public's consciousness"



    Also there is way more about drugs than music, by a 2:1 ratio

    There are seriously so many annecdotes portraying the (most likely fictional) character of "Dave Mustaine: Hero" that I vomited.

    There is an annecdote where Dave Mustaine and James Hetfield are walking down a dark alley to confront a rapist (not making this up), when James sees the size of the rapist Mustaine is left to confront him alone with his karate skills. There are also five seperate mentions of the phrase "rabbit punched", I still have no idea what this means

    It's closely related to the Falcon Punch.
