Thoughts/Comments/Review: I became a fan of Megadeth fully when "The System Has Failed" was released since then I've been an avid fan of Megadeth. I have alot of respect and admiration for Dave Mustaine and so this book was a must for me. It was a very good read , very well written. I have to say it was one of the best Rock Bios I've read in a very long time. Mustaine is very candid and upfront in his telling of his life. He even admits to his own faults as he recounts the events of his life, his time with Metallica, the Birth of Megadeth, The troubles in the band, the music, his own demons, and how he found God and went from a downward spiral to climbing high. He leaves no stone unturned, Any fan of Megadeth should get a copy of this book and give it a read because I know for me it gave a whole new depth to Dave Mustaine. One thing I liked is he talks about his faith but also admits his own faults. Like I said very candid and very forthcoming.
