Megadeth's Dave Mustaine diagnosed with throat cancer

Article

Dave Mustaine has been diagnosed with throat cancer.

The Megadeth frontman revealed his diagnosis on Twitter Monday.

“I’ve been diagnosed with throat cancer,” tweeted the 57-year-old. “It’s clearly something to be respected and faced head on — but I’ve faced obstacles before. I’m working closely with my doctors, and we’ve mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate. Treatment has already begun.
“Unfortunately this requires that we cancel most shows this year,” the rocker continued. “The 2019 Megacruise will happen, and the band will be a part of it in some form. All up to date information will be at Megadeth.com as we get it. Megadeth will be back on the road ASAP. Meanwhile, Kiko [Loureiro, guitar], David [Ellefson, bass], Dirk [Verbeuren, drums] and I are in the studio working on the follow-up to [2016’s] ‘Dystopia’ — which I can’t wait for everyone to hear. I’m so thankful for my whole team — family, doctors, band members, trainers and more. I’ll keep everyone posted. See you soon.”

It sounds like he'll beat it, thankfully. I just hope he can hang onto his voice. He's not a great vocalist or anything, but I'd feel bad for him if he had to give it up.

Depends what you mean by great. He is distinctive which I'd take over technical proficiency any day of the week.

Can he reunite with Metallica for maybe a one night gig?

He did at one of their 30th anniversary shows. That was good enough for me.

Even Lloyd Grant? Wow, pretty cool, I didn't know about that.

Anyway, my Mustaine/Megadeth fan days are behind me, but I wish him the best.
